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.

Bomb Pop

Hi Everyone!

I made this card when I so should have been doing something else.  Like a million other things.  Sometimes though, you just hafta stamp.  That was me.  I loved the color challenge they were having over at the Hambo Hoedown (red, teal and white), so when I hatched this idea knew and HAD to play.

Is it wrong to be this excited about a little CAS card? 

The colors reminded me of a bomb pop, so I used my favorite Popsicle stamp and Stay Cool sentiment from Hambo.  Now I have a creative little Fourth of July card :) 

Ok, gotta run and finish up the food for the graduation party...Thanks for stopping by!

CUTE CUTE idea and well done, Karin! I love it!!! Bomb pops were a staple when I had just had my surgery and didn't feel like eating anything. A church friend wanted to bring a casserole and I said, "Bring popsicles instead!" SUPER CUTIE~!
