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.

Cupcake Challenge

Hi Everyone,

DRS Designs is the sponsor this week over at Cupcake Inspirations, so play along for your chance to win a $10.00 voucher to the store

I have to admit, the inspiration photo was a bit intimidating to me.  Wow, those are some big, bold colors right?  Well, I chose not to chicken out and decided the clean and simple route was best for me.  I must say I was very pleased.


See?


I used the brown, fuchsia and teal colors and even the flower inspiration on top of the cupcake for my birthday card.  I just sent out 3 b-day cards this weekend, so it's nice to keep up on my supply of them :)

Here are the stamps I used:

Hope you decide to take the challenge...Good Luck!

Other challenges for this card:
Birthday Sundaes-Birthday and sentiment
Kenny K's Krafty Girls-Bright, Summer colors
Sentimental Sundays-Flower and Sentiment
Catch the Bug-Anything Goes
Crafty Calender-Hot August Colors
Raise the Bar-Anything Goes

Details not listed above- Paper: The Paper Company, Ink, Punch & Chalk: Stampin' Up!, Nesties, Ribbon and brads from my supplies.

I like CAS look this card. Anything else and it would have been too much I think, love how you just knotted the ribbon instead of a bow. Very pretty as usual!
