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.

This is my second post for today...Please scroll down for the current I Love Digi Challenge. ( It matches this card! )

Hey Everyone!

For my Lindsay's Stamp Stuff post today, I thought I would make a card to match my bookmark that I made using this same image from School Rules.  Besides crafting, one of my favorite hobbies is reading, so it's no wonder I like this image so much! 

I took inspiration from this paper for how I wanted to color my books and I love the bright, vibrant look.  So cheerful!

I think this will be the perfect card to send to someone in my book club! 

If you are thinking about buying anything from the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Shop at My Grafico, this would be the time to do it.  There is a sale going on right now!

Lindsay has a freebie for you on her blog today, so make sure you stop there to see what it is, and drop by the design team blogs below for more crafting inspiration!
