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.

Fancy Flowers for Mom

Hi Friends!

Today is the day that the entire Lindsay's Stamp Stuff team is posting their Mother's Day creations for you. Remember, from now on, I will be bringing you my weekly Lindsay's Stamp Stuff posts on Thursday's from here on out :)

I chose to use what might be one of my favorite LSS images from the set Fancy Flowers. It seemed perfect for the card I was making for my Mother's Day card for my mother- in-law. It also uses a freebie sentiment from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff called Lovely Tickets.

I used this paper on my post earlier this week and combined it with a traditional flourish stamp for embellishment on the solid card base.

The rest of the team has lots of new ideas too, so stop by the team blogs by clicking below.

Wow! This is sooo pretty! I love the colors! I also love how you used your flourish stamps to create the base. I will keep your mother in law in my prayers and I do hope they can find out soon what the problem is! Hugs!!

This is absolutely gorgeous Karin! I love the Cosmos image and you did such a beautiful job with the details.

My family is Hispanic, so we're pretty far from the German heritage, but my older sister is Karin, Karinanne actually. When she was a kid, she used to spell it Karen, but went with the "i" later because she didn't under why to change it to an e when the i was already there! LOL
