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.

Blog Hop Time

Hi Everyone,
 
 
Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Girly Girls & Macho Mania Blog Hop!  If you came here by way of the fabulous Anne Temple, you are in the right place.  If not, you will want to start at the beginning, so that you don't miss out on commenting along that way.  There are lots of prizes to be had, so make sure you leave a comment on every one's blog!
 
 
Alright, on to my cards:)! I was fortunate enough to work with the Bicycles (#494) stamp set, so I decided to go the girly route for both of my cards.  I chose my papers and colored up the bikes to match, using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and Copic markers.
 
 
 
Isn't this bicycle built for two just darling?  It makes me want to picnic with my sweet fella! Here my card is embellished with a flower made from a base of die cut Sticker Paper (#99558) coated in Crystal Ice Glitter (#G1058) and Mimosa Sparkle N Soft (#SS114)
 
 
As always, full card details can be found in my gallery right here.
 
Thanks for hopping along with us, and your next stop is the wonderful blog of Brigita Skopas!
