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.

Sparkle N Sprinkle Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Did you know that Sparkle N Sprinkle has a sketch challenge?  It begins on the first of every month and lasts the entire month.  So basically there's no pressure, just tons of time to make something!

I know I always say sketches aren't my thing, unless they are nice and easy ;)  I think this one falls into that category, so I decided to play along this month.

Here is the sketch:


And for my card I used the stampette stamp set Blossoms to Go (440S) along with a sentiment from A Rose Garden (402).  I love this sweet sentiment. It's one that I don't have in any of my other stamp sets, and it works for any occasion. 


I made my background papers and colored the center flower to match. After cutting out the image with my square Nestabilities die, I covered it in Brushable Glue (540) and Crystal Ice glitter(G1058).  I love the way that it's semi transparent, so that the image still comes though the soft shimmer.

Hope you can join in the fun :)
