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.

Amber Ink Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

I cannot believe an entire year has gone by.  I can still remember being giddy with excitement when the invitation arrived in my in box.  Would I be willing to carry the torch for the month of July for Amber Ink?  I thought for sure this email was meant for someone else.  ME?  Are you kidding me?  Of course I said yes, right after I got done doing a happy dance :)

 What an honor it was to be the first, and when it was time to pass my torch, I was so thrilled that my blogging friend Tanis, said yes too.  I love seeing the long line of purple torchbearers that have come after us.  And purple was my favorite color, back when I had a favorite color, and things like that mattered in my life as a five year old.  Now I have another nostalgic reason to love it.


So, to celebrate the one year mark for Amber Ink, torchbearers past and present are lighting the way with some super duper birthday projects, all full up of Amber Ink goodness.

Now, you should have arrived from Ninni's blog, but if you didn't, go to Amber Inklings to start at the beginning.  Leave some comments along the way, and you could be a lucky winner of some goodies.

My card was made using the set Let's Communicate.  I colored up that oh so stylish girl with my Copics and then layered her on some bright party papers from my stash.  I added some bling and the cut out curve on the bottom of the card says, "Wishing you lots of everything wonderful."  I would be wonderful if it showed up better in the photo. 


Ok, enough babble from me...Next up on the hop is Tanis!  She rocks everything she does, so hurry up and take a peek. 

The entire list is below if you need it, and Happy Birthday AMBER INK!






Thanks for hopping!

LOL! I remember telling Amber and Pam how I almost deleted the email without reading it. I thought it was a newsletter and I had a mailbox full of mail that I was trying to get through without reading everything. So glad I didn't delete it because its been an awesome experience!

Adorable card! Amazing job on the coloring!!!
