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.

Old Fashioned Hello

Hi Everyone!

Wow, I can't believe we are in the midst of summer right now, can you?!  Crazy right?  Well, to slow things down and remind myself of simpler times, I used this telephone image from the set Posh n Trendy from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff for my card today.  Remember when phones had cords?  It wasn't long ago!


I paper pieced the little phone in a light pink to match the papers and added a flourish of bling to make it girly.  The word art was a freebie from TLC and I was lucky that the color of my wrinkle ribbon (I think I only have two colors and I haven't tried to make my own yet) matched the paper too.

Here is the set that I've used so many times before :)

What a pretty card! I still have a phone with a cord in my bedroom - it's a new phone styled to look antique & I feel in love with it as soon as I saw it at TJ Maxx

Fabulous card! I love how the bling echoes the phone cord-how clever!

Donna said...

Wow! Great Textures and wonderful bow, Karin! Definitely an "I" for the papers - who wouldn't love this card? We have a phone almost just like that, except it is touch tone. Our power frequently goes out, so it was our standby phone. Of course, now it's cell phones, so not sure how much longer we will keep this dinosaur!
