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.

Technique Challenge

Hi Everyone,

This week the challenge at the Hambo Hoedown is so inclusive, you don't have a reason not to play along.  All you have to do is use a technique from the technique section at Splitcoast Stampers.  If you've never seen the technique section over there, you don't know what you are missing.  It's an  awesome resource that pretty much covers everything.  So grab a Hambo stamp, digi or freebie and play along this week!

Here is my card using the snail and the Spotlighting Technique.



If you play along, remember to email a photo of your card to hambodesignteam@gmail.com and you will receive a free digi to use in the challenge the following week.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can play along!

Creative Stamp Friends-Brown and Orange
Cupcake Craft-Leaves
Make My Monday-Autumn Leaves
Pollycraft-Anything goes

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Me & My Big Ideas, Markers: Copic, Punches: Stampin' Up, EK Success, Nesties, Brads from my supplies.
