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.

Wishing you all the best...

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a great Easter Sunday.  We had a busy day filled with lots of food and family :)

I love having masculine cards in my stash, and this Lighthouse from I Brake for Digis is a great image for that purpose.  I colored it with Copic markers and then went back and added highlights to the water with a white gel pen.  I thought the red bakers twine fit the nautical theme and buttons and twine seem to be my go to masculine embellishments.

Well, I still have lots of post holiday clean up, so my post is short and sweet.  If you want to save 10% off, remember to use the code SAVE10KARIN when shopping at I Brake For Digis.

Have a great Monday!
