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.

A Valentine

I don't know how, but I managed to sneak in some "just for fun" stamping time. I decided to play along with the sketch challenge at Everything but the Kitchen Sink and it was soooo much fun making a non-Christmas card! Even though I need to make a few New Years cards, I had to make a Valentine's Day card for this challenge. I immediately thought of this stamp when I saw the sketch. I have so few stamps that are tall like this one.

I picked that paper up early in the year and never used it. ( I do that a lot. Have some grand plan that never comes to fruition. ) Well, I was happy to have it now.

I used markers to color the stamp and then huffed on it. My trusty Stickles are the bling, and I opted for a button for my corner embellishment.

I hope things are going well for all of you, getting last minute details in order for your Christmas celebration.

Thanks for taking the time to visit!

Details- Stamps: Printworks, Paper: Bazill, Martha Stewart, Susan Branch, Markers: Sugarloaf, Border Punch: Martha Stewart and Crop-o-Dial, button and ribbon from my supplies.

Great job on the sketch challenge, love the colors. My friend had that name, don't know if you pronounce it like she does, but she would say, it's Karin, like Car IN the garage! I never misprounced her name after that introduction
