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.

Favor Cake and a Card

Hi Everyone,

Here are my party favors that I promised to show off.  You can see the party details in yesterday's post. It was a great day filled with laughter, and family and friends. I love a good party!

The favor cake I made for the party was filled with silver Hershey Kisses. Sorry for the not great photo, but I was in a rush when I realized I never took a pic.


Here is a side shot of the individual slice...


Unfortunately my cake stand would only hold 20, so I had to round out the favors by making bags with toppers due to space constraints.



I sent the top of the slice through my Cuttlebug and embossed it with swirls. The ribbon was a pretty silver like grey and the flowers were from the craft store.


While I was in the middle of making these, Lindsay came out with a SVG Printable Cake Box Favors set herself.  Now you can make one too!  Gotta love Lindsay's Stamp Stuff!


Also, the week before the party, my cousin had tickets to the Cleveland Orchestra that he couldn't use, so he gifted them to us.  (I love thoughtful family and friends, don't you?)  Well, we had a wonderful time sitting in amazing seats and attending a dessert reception afterward, so I had to send a special thank you note.  I used a coffee image freebie from a long time ago, that was offered on Lindsay's personal blog The Frugal Crafter to make my card. 

This freebie coordinates with the set Coffee Talk too.  Check it out:
