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 Supports OWH

*There is still time to enter my blog candy give away right here.*

Hi Everyone,

The challenge this week at the Hambo Hoedown was to make a card to support Operation Write Home.  I didn't play along to get the free digi last week, so I decided to use this Camouflage Bear that was created by them some time ago for another OWH event.  I was able to grab this when it was a freebie, so I'm happy to finally put it to use.

Since I wanted it to be easy to mail, and OWH doesn't allow glitter, I kept my embellishments to a minimum.  Besides, if a guy wanted to send this card home, I think they prefer less frilly ones anyway.


If you play along and email a photo of your card, you get a free digi to use in the next challenge.  If you send the actual card in to Hambo Stamps for their OWH event, you will get another freebie as well.  All the formal deets can be found on the challenge blog here.

Thanks for looking!  Oh, and it's my day to post at the DRS Designs blog today.  Pop on by for a look at my Halloween card, and I will have another new DRS Designs card here for you tomorrow!

Other Challenges for this card:
Cupcake Craft-Teddy Bear
Paper MakeUp Stamps-ReSize your digis
The Ribbon Girl-Green, brown and ribbon

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Markers: Copic, Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug, Punch: McGill, Ribbon from my supplies.
