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.

Life is Better at the Beach

Hi Everyone,
I have a simple card to share today.  I'm so over the cold, grey weather around here, so I thought I'd cheer myself up with a beach themed creation.  I made it for the new challenge at the Sparkle N Sprinkle challenge blog.  It's a month long challenge and the theme this month is Anything Goes with Glitter.  How easy is that?  My kinda challenge :)
My focal sentiment comes from the set Beach Babes(# 473) by Michelle Perkett and I used some Sparkle N Soft in Sparkling Sands (SS118) and Velvet glitter in Jasper Blue (GM2012) on my die cuts. Using Sticker Paper (99558) makes applying glitter to anything so easy. If you want any more specifics on my card, you can find them in my card gallery at Sparkle N Sprinkle.
If you play along in our challenge using a Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp (rubber or digi), you will receive a digi stamp, just for participating.  I hope  that you will find the time to join us.  All the details and to link up your card can be found by clicking here. 
Hope you have a happy weekend!

This is the sweetest. The flip flops are TOOOOOOO CUTE. And the netting is wow. Super sentiment too. Love the polka dots on the top and the fishes at the bottom.

That sentiment is almost like a healing prayer. So thoughtful of you, Karin and kind as well.
