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.

Better Late Than Never...

Hi All,

It's Thursday and that means the team from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff has some great ideas for you.

I'm using the Vintage Alice Printables  for the very first time. I thought this image would be perfect for a very specific kind of bithday card. The kind you have to send when, whoops! You forgot to send one! I colored the image with chalks for a soft look, and then paired it with bold, graphic and modern looking papers. I really like the contrast between the two. The sentiment outside...

and inside is a traditional stamp.

Thanks for dropping by! Remember to visit Lindsay's blog to see what kind of surprise she has for you, as well as the rest of the design team.

Lindsay (Owner and Designer)

Cheryl (DT Coordinator)
