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.

And a million others! Thank you everyone who creates and inspires!

Happy Crafting!

Part two of my post... The Moxie Fab World Blog has an Anne Taintor inspired card challenge at the moment. You can go here if you want to know everything there is to know about her, but basically the cards, and other bits of kitsch have these vintage images and witty phrases on them.

I love these items and think some are so funny and inspired, but I didn't even think of participating until I saw this card, by my Lindsay's Stamp Stuff team mate Kristen. Isn't it cute??? So, if she could make one, so could I.

Well, not only did I make this one... I made two more! You'll have to check back in the coming days to see those...All the images came from the public domain stuff on the Internet and I made up the funnies and printed them out. I think I'm addicted...Somebody stop me!

Hope you have day that contains some laughs!

Details- Paper: Bazill, Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder, Fiskars corner punch and ribbon from my supplies.
