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.

Hi Everyone,

I have been itching to get these stamps from Scrolls Work inked up, but with all the Easter clean up and yard work, they have been sitting in my crafting area calling my name.

My niece is a huge fan of anything French. When she was just a child, she went as a little french girl for Halloween. She had a beret and a scarf and really looked, Oh so French! She is now in high school, taking French and has visited France with her family and been on the Eiffel Tower. So, this card is inspired by her!

I decided on white and black color combo, with pink as an accent color. This I felt would keep the card nice and girlie. The Eiffel Tower stamp #2001 is the main image. After stamping it, I sprayed the entire main image piece with adhesive and sprinkled it with stamping glitter. I then chose the Sheet Music stamp #7104 for the background of this card.

Here is a close up...but the sparkle was hard to capture in a photo. A ribbon and three half pearls completed the project.

Scrolls Work has a huge catalog of stamps beyond these, and I invite you to check them out. There are cards featured by the design team members on the Scrolls Work Blog as well...Get inspired!

I now want to take a moment to thank sweet Leanne for passing on this Award to me. So thoughtful of her to think of me and I really appreciate her kindness:)

So, to accept this award, I must name 10 things that make me happy and list 5 pieces of trivia about myself. Here goes....

10 Things that make me happy

1. Coffee

2. Chocolate

3. Sunny days

4. Being on vacation

5. A good book

6. Stamps

7. A great romantic comedy

8. My Hubby

9. A great nights sleep

10. Listening to the Cleveland Orchestra play at Blossom Music Center on a warm summer night! How I wish I was there right now :)

5 Pieces of Trivia

Frankly, my whole life is pretty trivial, so I will just refer you to an older post with 7 pieces of trivia, since nothing much has changed since then :) Click Here.

As far as passing this on, I would like to give this to all the members of the Design Teams I am on. They are all much more creative than I, and I'm inspired by their work and blogs on a daily basis. So, please grab this award ladies and gents and pass it on!

Thanks for the visit and have a great rest of the day!
