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 Blog Hop


Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Wonderland Blog Hop! If you hopped here by way of Anne, then you are in the right place. Otherwise, you might like to start from the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog, to become eligible for 6 fabulous prizes!

My card shares for the hop today were both made with digis.  Yep, Sparkle N Sprinkle has a whole line of digital images by Michelle Perkett now.  How cool is that?

This darling Snowman with Heart (100) was colored with Copic Markers and a layer of Blizzard Beach Mudd Puddles was added for a crunchy snowy embellishment.  I also added some Sparkling Snow Glitter (G1003) before the Mudd Puddles dried, and a bit of bling to the heart too.

 
 My next card features Buddy the Christmas Pup (017) and he's just too sweet in his holiday sweater :)  He was fussy cut and layered onto an embossed cut out of Sticker Paper layered with more Sparkling Snow Glitter (G1003).  I also used Sticker Paper for the pine branches which were made with the Velvet Glitter in Luau Green (GM2004).  My punched button embellishment was made using Winterberry Embossing Powder (EP411) which was a perfect match for Buddy's sweater!  Sparkle N Sprinkle has colors to mach everything! lol!
 
 
As always, full details can be found in my gallery at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Now, on to the talented Debi for more holiday inspiration! 
 
Happy Holiday Hopping!
(Below is the full blog hop list in case there is a glitch along the way :) )
