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 Mother's Day

Hi Everyone!

Wow, this week flew by for me! There always seems like so much to do once spring comes around.

I went to my first Indians game the other night too...Go Tribe! Yeah, they lost. Oh well, I did get hugged by "Slider" (the mascot) and danced for the camera man who put it on the Jumbo-tron...Woo-Hoo! I seriously hope no one I know was there to see it :)

'Nuff, about that...

Today I have another card that I made using my stamps from Scrolls Work. I believe the next major holiday coming up is Mother's Day, so I thought I would get a head start on ideas for you.

I used vintage looking papers and this sweet flower bouquet called Floral Color Spot #4506, that I colored to match. The whole card just reminds me of an antique sitting room in a Victorian mansion.

I added antique ink to a layered flower embellishment to set off the sentiment which actually comes in a group of holiday sentiments (#1602).

Well, I hope you are planning on making your Mom's day a special one...And if your mom is no longer with you, let me inspire you to reach out to someone else on that day. Someone who is important to you...Remind them that they are!

Here are the challenges this card is linked to :
