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.

Merry & Bright

Hi Everyone,

The Christmas holiday is almost upon us, so today's post contains my last Christmas card. This time leading up has gone by so quickly, I'm hoping to really savor the holiday itself :)

 I chose to keep my focus on the adorable little Christmas Village Slope Roof Cottage for this card. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo black ink, colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut it out. I stamped a line of trees (from Christmas Village 4 in 1 Accessories 2) and added the tiny snowmen(from Christmas Village 4 in 1 Accessories), only coloring the hats and scarves to match the card base and front door of the cottage. Then I glued down the house in the space I left blank.

The Merry and Bright Stars Greeting was also stamped in red, and I attached a red & white ribbon using my stapler. I added it to my card with some dimensional tape, added a few mini snowflakes as embellishments and a bit of glitter glue to the cottage roof.

While my post is short and sweet, my wishes to you for bright and merry days are heartfelt! I'm grateful for you, dear stampers :)
