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.

Frosty Stares

Hi Everyone,

Are you ready for winter?  Where I live, we had an awesome month weather wise.
  I can't even remember a November this nice...EVER!  I didn't wear a coat on Thanksgiving, and we usually have snow by then.

However, I know it's coming!  So to get you in the spirit of the wet winter months, we have a challenge at the Hambo Hoedown to stay dry with DRY EMBOSSING.

If you played along last week and emailed your photo of your card, you should have received your Snowball Fight digi. I'm imagining they are brother and sister in for the fight of their life. I mean, if looks could kill, right? LOL!  I had this epoxy sticker with the "frosty" word on it, and I just thought it described the stares they were giving each other perfectly.  All I did to finish it off, was add dimension by using pop dots on the snow and images.

So emboss away and join us at the Hambo Hoedown :)

Thanks for dropping by!

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Ribbon: Offray, Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug, Markers: Copic, Wavy Cutter: Creative Memories, Glitter: Stampendous, Punches: EK Success.

Frosty is right! Check out those glares. I think I threw a few like this at my brother while growing up.

Your card is so cute! I love the embossing snow drifts.

You're right - they weather has been pretty great! Enjoy it while it lasts.

Oh yes, they have their game faces on! Great card -- I like how you combined tearing and embossing for the snow.

So cute... love their expressions. And the gingham ribbon looks neat.

LOL! What cute little guys! We don't have snow here, but I remember those days... and how much fun it was to build snow forts and play. I like how the snow banks are layered, too.

I like the embossing and the glitter on the snowballs. CUTE!

HAHAHA! Frosty indeed! What a funny pair =) I think your snow is fabulous (how did you make those perfect rolling hills?!) and your mischevious pair are delightful!
