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.

Happy Bird-Day!

*There is still time to enter my blog candy, just click here.*

Hi Everyone,

This was a freebie image from Bugaboo Stamps early this year.  I know, cute freebie right?  I used it once, but never got a pic of the card.  So when I came across the extra image that I had printed out at the time, I decided to color it up for a card for my stash.  Although it left my house some time ago to wish someone a happy birthday, I still had the photo I remembered to take this time. So since this week the challenge at Bugaboo Stamps is "Anything Goes," I decided I would go ahead and post it.  I don't always get to enter a company challenge using their products. 

Not only that, it's also the real life birthday of one of my very best friends in the whole wide world...So if you are reading this, (and I know you will because I will send you the link by email...HA!) Happy Birthday Frank!


I'm not going to say much of anything about this card, except that I think it turned out very cute and I hope you like seeing it :)  

On a personal note,  I FINALLY saw the last Harry Potter movie, so I'm happy to have joined the "in" crowd.  Even if I am a few months late.  Also, my book club resumed meeting after a summer break, and we chose our next 4 books.  Maybe I will post those on my side bar when I get a chance.

Have a great weekend!
