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.

Popping By To Say Hi!

Hi Everyone!

There's a fun set of Retro Movie Stamps that were recently released at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, so I had to color up this popcorn digi and make a fun card.  Wouldn't this be a friendly thing to find in your mailbox from a special someone?  It looks just like the advertisements for the cinema refreshment stand.  I remember them dancing across the screen at the drive-in movies when I was a kid :)


I used layers of paper from Cosmo Cricket, and I had the perfect sentiment to pair him up with.  It's from one of my favorite sets from Amber Ink.

Here is a peek at the entire set of digis:


Cute, right?  Kinda makes you want to go to the movies! I think my next trip to the cinema will have to be for the last Harry Potter flick.  I'm one who has to wait for the crowds to die down though :)

Remember, Lindsay always has great crafty ideas on her blog as well, so stop by for a look see there, too.

Thank you for popping by.  I know I've been posting less, it's just that summer has kept me doing other things outside my craft area, so I really appreciate you all hanging in there with me. I will be around to visit you soon!
