Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Distressed Pig

Hi Everyone!

The theme this week at the Hambo Hoedown is "Distressing".  I really like the texture distressing can give a card and I went a little "hog wild" (ha-ha) with my crumpling of the papers.  I also added some distress ink to the edges of everything too.  It's funny, because of this theme,  I feel like this Balloon Pig (1903) is calling his lawyer to get him out of the mess he made...lol!


The punny Sow Have You Been sentiment (1917) fit neatly (isn't that ironic) in the corner and I added twine and buttons to match the whole messy/rustic look. 

If you want to play along, just use any digi or traditional stamp from Hambo and join in the fun this week!  Messy is good :)

Challenges for this card:
Simon Says Stamp-Distressing
Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, DCWV, Nesties, Copics, Ink: Momento, buttons and twine from my supplies.
