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.

Flower Monster

Hi Everyone,

I'm so excited to be back on the Hambo design team for another term.  These next few months I'll be working with their super cute digis, which means I will be posting my card for the Hambo Hoedown challenge every Wednedsay at my blog.  I hope that you can play along this week.


This week the challenge is to use the Flower Monster (or any Hambo stamp) to create a project that uses an item that starts with the first letter of your first name. 
I was a little freaked out at first, what starts with a K?  I had to put on my thinking cap...See if you can guess what it is...



Isn't he the cutest thing?!?!?

Did you guess?  No? Then scroll down....





KNOTS!

I'll go ahead and say it.  I totally love myself.  Go see what the other Bacon Bits made for the challenge and then join us.  Remember to email a photo of your card to hambodesignteam@gmail.com               and you will recieve a new digi to play along with for next week!

Have a great day!
