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.

You're Sty-lish

Hi Everyone!

It's time for another challenge at the Hambo Hoedown Blog and the theme this week is an Easel Card.  Isn't that fun?  I'm always happy when the theme is easy to play along with no matter what type of Hambo Stamps you are using.  If you didn't get the digi for this week by playing along in the challenge last week, just use any Hambo Stamp and join in the fun!

With a company name like Hambo, you know they have to have some cute pig stamps, and this week I'm proud to use this great "Cool Pig" (1909) stamp along with the funny "Sty-lish"(1922) sentiment.  This pig is totally "swave and deeboner"...lol. I know he would make a great image on a masculine card too...Don't you love his Risky Busineess shades?  I totally think of that movie whenever I see sunglasses like that!


Do you like the puffy Satin Ivory Heart embellishments?  Those are from Hambo Stamps as well.  They are actually some May Arts Ribbon which I cut apart and used separately.  They have all sorts of ribbon, so definitely give it a look see.  You will not be disappointed.

Hope you can join in the dancing this week at the Hambo Hoedown!

One Stop Craft-Spots and Dots

How stinkin' CUTE Karin!! I love how you used the pig and the satin hearts. One thing I love about those hearts is that you can color them with Copics to match any project. Great work!! :)
