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.

Hambo Hop for Monica's Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I'm so excited to participate in a Surprise Birthday Hop for Monica Hunter! Monica is the owner of Hambo Stamps and tomorrow is her birthday. A few of us got together and decided to throw a little surprise party for her, and we would like you to join us! If you arrived here via Dina Kowal's blog, you are in the right place. Otherwise, start at the beginning with Jenn Cochren's blog so you don't miss out on any party fun. Every birthday has to have presents, and this one has one for you! One random hopper that completes the hop will receive a Hambo Birthday surprise! The winner will be announced at the Hambo Hoedown on Wednesday, August 17th.

For my card I inked up those darling little Party Chicks and the sentiment was a perfect fit.  Don't they look like they are ready to party?  I love those hats almost as much as their little faces :) 

Now I'm talking directly to you Monica, take a good look at that little paper rose in the corner, because I don't think it will look quite as good when it arrives by snail mail...lol. 


Now, on to Isabelle Mung's blog.
 

Happy birthday Monica and everyone have a wonderful weekend!

Pretty card!

Gina said...

I LOVE this card. The papers are great, the colors are beautiful!

I FINALLY was able to get my hands on some tack it over glue so that I can use the beautiful image you sent me. The only place I can find it is Michael's and the last four times I have been there they have not had any in stock. The lady I asked about it says lately it goes as fast as it gets there and asked me what was so special about it. I still didn't get a bottle but one of my co-workers is a fellow stamper and she brought me a bottle. I am hoping to get it colored in the next few days or so.

Micki said...
