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.

Happy Easter

Hi Everyone!

This weeks theme with Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is Easter, and I sure am ready for sunshine and flowers! Spring was always my Mom and Grandma's favorite time of year. They would always comment on how they loved when the trees just started to have that hint of green.

I like spring too...In theory. But, (there's always a but) with spring comes that dirty word...Yard work! If I had a gardener, or I lived in a penthouse with a private rooftop deck, I would be a little more enthusiastic. Instead, I have deer who eat everything, moles digging tunnels and tearing up the lawn, bags and bags of pine cones and needles to pick up...Oh, yes, and the mulch. Yards and yards of mulch to spread. One of my top 5 most hated jobs. Sigh. As long as I look past that, spring is a great time of year! Lol! Well, enough babble...On to the Easter card!

I used an image from Fancy Flowers, and I just love it in shades of purple.

As usual, I used some traditional stamps to finish off the card and this has long been sent on its way to a happy recipient. Visit Lindsay and the rest of the team for more ideas!

Very pretty! I love that purple. The hint of text behind the main panel is great.

I am not a fan of early spring myself. Too much mud! But once things dry up and start blooming I love it.
