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.

Sew Glad We Are Friends

Hi Everyone,
 
I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things, and spent some time on World Card Making Day stamping cards for future shares on my blog using stamps from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I can't wait to show off what I've been working on.  Did you know that Sparkle N Sprinkle now has digis by Michelle Perkett for sale in their shop?  Eek! So totally cute :) You can find them here, but you'll have to wait a bit to see my cards ;) .
 
Until then, I've got a friendship card made with the super cute and versatile Fill the Jar set.  Fussy cutting and paper piecing are what I used here for the lid, label, jar and contents. 
 
 
I know it doesn't show up, but I added Crystal Ice glitter to my patterned paper behind the jar using Tear-iffic Tape. I think this card could have benefited from some actual sewing on it, but it was not to be the day I made this..lol! However, I did use real buttons, ribbon and twine.  Full details can be found by clicking here. 
 
As always, thanks for stopping by and I will "see" you soon :)

Sew sweet is this card, Karin. Love the jar and the sentiment. The buttons on the paper and the real one match so well with the theme.
Love,

I'm sew glad, too, Karin! :-)
What a great way of popping the other colors by using the black punched border! Looks wonderful! The jar also looks really nice with the textured lid cover and the blue background around the spools of thread.
