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.

Hi Everyone,

The Hambo Hoedown challenge is taking a break for the Christmas holiday this week.  Have no fear though, because we will be back next week :)  Until then, I wanted to share the card that I made using the new Elf Gift digi that is available in the store right now.

I won these letters awhile back, so I decided to break them out for my card today.  I thought a little sentiment like that would be enough along with the "Merry Christmas" paper at the bottom.  I wouldn't want to pull focus from that adorable elf :)  I think this image would make the cutest thank you card for all the lovely gifts we receive this time of year, don't you?

Thanks for stopping by.  I know I haven't been posting much recently, it's just that with Rod taking off work at the start of December, I got super behind on everything.  If I don't get a chance to say it before the weekend, Merry Christmas.  And just because of my card today, I thought I would go ahead and elf myself.

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Lilly Bee Design, The Paper Studio, Markers: Copic, Foam Letters: Pink Paislee, Punch: EK Success, Nesties, buttons and twine from my supplies.

Just when I thought a little elf couldn't have a sweeter face, up pops Karin as her own elf! You are darling, of course. So which elf is cuter? hmmm, the elfish impish little guy bearing gifts? Or the cutie pie trying to outdo herself with the fancy footwork? Certainly we know which is cuter, and her name contains an "i". :-) Very sweet card, little elf! Merry Merry to you, also.
