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.

Stay Cool

Hi Everyone,

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another challenge at the Hambo Hoedown.  Sadly I did not get a chance to play along this week, but the theme is "announcement cards".  That means birth announcement, moving or graduation or...YOU decide on what to announce!  All the details can be found at the Hambo Hoedown blog.

Now before you leave, I do have a card that I made with some of my cute Hambo Stamps.  I know it's not quite summer yet, but I couldn't resist making a creamsicle card using this adorable Popsicle stamp (#3421)!  Ahhh!  I just LOVE it.  Along with the cute Stay Cool (#1516) sentiment, that yummy May Arts ribbon is also from Hambo!

Seriously, look how great that Sheer Pinstripe ribbon is...And the selection at Hambo is HUGE and the prices are right in your budget :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello Karin,
You'll never guess with what I'm sitting in my hand looking at your wonderful card... a ice cream.(lol) We have 27° here. It feels almoast like summer.
I hope you have a nice day with lots of sun.
