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.

Magical Winter Moments


Hi Everyone,

I'm so glad you could join us in the Sparkle and Sprinkle blog hop ...Are you enjoying the winter themed cards along the hop so far? 

If you came from Julie's blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened by, you will want to start at the Sparkle and Sprinkle blog.  There you can get all the details on the prizes, but make sure you leave comments along the way!


My card today would make a wonderful thank you note.  We are always blessed to receive so many lovely things for the holidays, that it's nice to send a note to say how much they are appreciated.

The Swirly Reindeer (3385-414G) and the sentiment A Kind Word (3381-414AA) that I used for my card can be purchased separately or in a set named Winter Swirl (414).


My main image was stamped in Versamark(99702) and sprinkled with Burgundy (EP117) embossing powder.  Further details can be found at Sparkle and Sprinkle.


Your next stop on this magical hop is Jill! 

Have fun...The full list is below if you need it!

Karin, what a delightful Thank You/Note of Appreciation card for the holidays. What hostess, gift giver, or friend would not want to receive this colorful array of textures. The burgundy and pink prove both soft and "cool" for this wintry card. Thank you for creating a unique and kindly-gorgeous card!
