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.

Ladybug Hugs

Hi Everyone!

Last weekend was pretty snowy around here, so I stayed in and did some stamping. I don't know if I have ever copied myself before, but I did with this card.

My very first card that I posted when I started blogging last year was this cute ladybug card, that to this day is one of my favorites of all time. I was reminded of it when I was looking for spring/summer time stamps for a change. Looking to shake those winter time blues...

This ladybug is from the Doodle Flowers set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff and I thought the same concept would work with this little lady.

I printed her (Ladybugs are all girls, right?) out twice, colored both and cut the body out of the second one. I then just put tape down the center of the piece and folded up the sides.
Love her! The layout is my own and the sentiment is a traditional stamp.
I checked around some blogs, and my little lady fit some challenges out there which I have listed below.
