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.

In Stitches

Good morning all!
Today the theme for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff design team was " In Stitches". Since it was a sewing type theme, I chose to use an image from her set Doodle Flowers, which contains images that have always looked homespun and sewn to me. I also added some fake stitching on the panel behind the focal image too.

The background paper was created by me with a clear stamp and in the photo below, you can see the center of the flower up on a pop dot.

This has put me in the mood for spring for sure. If this image appeals to you, and you would like a chance at winning the entire set of Doodle Flowers, make sure you visit Cheryl's blog today to see her candy! Then visit Lindsay and the rest of the design team for their take on our theme this week...Our friend, Nettie, decided to step down from her design team duties to focus on her family, so this week we are welcoming Jessica as our newest member!








Hope spring has sprung where ever you are today!

Adorable card Karin, loving the layered flower.

I was just reading your blog intro and had to smile. When I was at primary school - there were 4 Karens, 1 Karin, 1 Karyn and 1 Kerryn in my class!! It got very confusing, LOL!
