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.

Let It Snow

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping by to see me today.  I'm totally thrilled to finally be able to share my happy news with you.  I have been invited to be a permanant member of the design team at Sparkle and Sprinkle stamps! Gosh, I can hardly stand it...lol!  I've had so much fun so far, so I'm really excited for what is in store in the coming months!

Let me start off by telling you to mark your calender, because Sparkle and Sprinkle will be having a Christmas in July Holiday Blog hop on July 14th and 15th, and I'm proud to be participating in it with the rest of the design team. 

So, to get you in the holiday mood, here is another super simple card made with stamps from the set named Rudy.

I used the tiny heart from another sentiment stamp in the set as embellishments for my corners, and the Let It Snow sentiment is my focal point.  That was all I needed, because my embossed background was covered in Sparkling Snow glitter.


What can I say? I love me some bling.  Trust me, if you're looking at your card, and you feel like it's missing something,  It's probably some sparkle. 

If you want step by step instructions, check out my card in the Sparkle and Sprinkle gallery.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you are excited to see what I will be showing you in the coming months!

Have a great holiday weekend :)
