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,

Today's challenge at the Hambo Hoedown is to CASE a card from the Hambo card gallery.  Don't know what CASE is?  It means to Copy and Share Everything.

So, here is the card that I was inspired by:

And this is my take on it.  I used the new digi Super Bird.  I received it just in time to make this for my brother in law's birthday.  He's a huge bird fan, and I make him a bird card every year.  The inspiration card layout, buttons as embellishments and colors made for the perfect not too "fru fru" guy card.

I have to say it was a hit with him.  However, being a typical guy, he asked, "So, what do the buttons mean?" lol...  Sigh.  Nothing, Tony.  They mean nothing other than, see how cute I look as a decoration on the card :)

I hope that you stop by the Hambo gallery, there's always lots of inspiration there.  And grab a Hambo stamp and play along at the Hoedown. Once you do, you'll be hooked :)

This is my last Hambo Hoedown post as a member of the design team...Sob!  My term has come to an end and a new group of Bacon Bits will be inspiring us on Wednesdays.  Now I can play along with everyone  again and get in the loop for free digis too :)  However, before I go, there will be a fun blog hop happening on this Friday, so I hope you will mark your calender and join me for one last Hambo hoo-rah. 

Have a great day!

Cute! I love looking at cards and trying to see how I can make it with the images and papers, etc. that I have.

Just wanna clarify - what kinda birds does BIL like??? Just kidding! When my hubby says he is bird-watching, I know what he means!!! Lol.
This card is cool and I like those panels.The buttons look cool. Well I hope BIL gets to watch the birds he desires.
