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.

See Ya Later Alligator

Hi Everyone,

It's a with a sad boo boo face that I write my post today, because it's my last card as a Bacon Bit (DT member) for Hambo Stamps.  It has been my complete honor and privilege to design cards using their super cute and totally hilarious rubber and digi stamps.  The good news is there's a new group of talented designers ready to blow you away with their creative talent next week.

The other fun thing?  Now I can be just like all of you in blog land, and play along with the Hambo Hoedown each week. (They give you free digis if you email them your project each week...Cool, eh?) 

 Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to play along this week, but I do have a card to show you.

I used this cute Gator (#4105) for my Bon Voyage card.  I thought it was appropriate since I wanted to say goodbye and him being so fun and summer like, he'll bring a smile when I send it off to a vacationing friend.  I had this darling travel themed paper, and the drink embellishment matched the gator himself.

Many, many thanks to Monica and Judy (and Tim for those great designs!) for one of the best design team experiences I have ever had!  Thanks to the Internet, no one is ever too far away!

OK everyone, grab your dancing shoes and get over to the Hambo Hoedown!
