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.

Season's Greetings

Hi Everyone,

It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for a new Hoedown

The challenge this week is CORNERS.  How's that for easy?  Grab your Santa Monster digi that you received for playing along last week, or any Hambo Stamp, and adorn your corners any way you see fit.

I just nipped mine off on the background papers and also on the panel that houses my Santa Monster.  I did also add some brads from my stash to those, but left the outer ones blank.  No real reason for that, just thought less is maybe more.

I used some sheer ribbon edged in gold and a gold metal snowflake embellishment to finish it off. 

Are you done making cards?  I'm almost done.  I will be using some store bought ones (GASP!)  to help me finish out my list this year :)
Hope you get a chance to play along at the Hoedown...I'm always blown away (and humbled) by your creativity as I visit your blogs each week! 

Details not listed above-Paper: K & Company, The Paper Company, Markers: Copic, Punches: EK Success, Ribbon: May Arts, Brads and embellishment from my supplies.

This little guy is CUTE CUTE CUTE! So where did you find the gold edged sheer ribbon? Probably in your stash a while? It's gorgeous! And the little "charm" on the ribbon is delightful! Just picked up that same Christmas Stack - does that mean I have an "I", too, even tho the only "I" appears in my last name? Cute card in so many ways! Merry, Merry, Karin!

I love that you admit that you'll use some bought ones =) Sometimes, it's best to keep your sanity in these times of holiday gusto!
Great challenge - and your card is a perfect example of some fabulous corners. That ribbon is BEAUTY and the snowflake makes the perfect addition!

So many corners! Here I was thinking four! That image is a riot. and you've co-ordinated everything so very nicely.

Monica said...

How cute is that unearthling... and the card is very striking with the corners cut off.

PS: Sorry that you could not see my last card, yesterday I could view it but today Blogger was playing hide and seek. So I have reposted the picture.

This is so cute Karin! I think the corners are really nice and I love how you layered them to make them really stand out and the brads are the perfect touch. Hope Santa Monster doesn't visit me though, he doesn't look like he is very generous!

Gina said...

I am not done with my cards either, I am hoping to finish them tonight. All I have left are the ones that will be delivered in person at parties and on Christmas.

Love your Santa Monster card!
