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.

This Just In...

This just in...It's a new challenge at the Hambo Hoedown today!  And...Did you know that today is the last day for the Hambo Hogtoberfest sale


Make sure you remember to stop on over to the sale page so that you don't miss out :) However, you will want to check in tomorrw for more "HOGtoberfest" news...We're gonna keep the party going! Ok, on to the the subject at hand...

This was super fun card to prepare for you today. Can you guess the challenge by looking at my card?


Use newspaper!

This image is Newscaster.  I struggle with masculine cards, so I love that this makes a fun one for my stash.  Along with using newspaper as a background, I paper pieced it in this newscasters hands as well.  I finished it off by using lots of office type of embellishments.  I thought that would help butch it up a bit, since  I always want to add ribbon and glitter to everything :)

I hope you can join us at the Hambo Hoedown for our Newspaper challenge this week!  Don't have any Hambo stamps?  Click here for a freebie.
