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.

Birthday Sale & Blog Candy

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Birthday Sale...This coming weekend is Lindsay's birthday, and the exciting thing about that is, you get a gift of  34% off your purchase at the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff shop at My Grafico! This sale begins tomorrow on July 8th, so make your list of what you want to buy as you visit the design teams blogs today.
Because it's Lindsay's special day, the design team has created birthday cards in her honor.  I chose to use the cupcake tree image from the set Sweet Stuff.   Who doesn't love a cupcake?   I used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch for my starting point,

and Lindsay's own projects are always so bright and vibrant, these papers just seems so appropriate for her birthday.

Her is a look at the entire set of sweet, sugary treats in the set of stamps.

Happy Birthday Lindsay!  I hope you day is filled with everything that your heart desires. 

Stop by her blog and leave her some well wishes and don't forget to check out the rest of the birthday themed creations from the design team!

Other challenges this card is linked to are as follows:
Rosie Dee's Challenge-Summer Birthday
Bunny Zoe-Nice and Girly
                                                            Digi Doodle-Dots and Spots
Ellaphantastic Challenge- It's Up to You
Wee Memories-Free for All
Sentimental Sundays-Celebrations w/ sentiment

I also have a personal birthday message of sorts.  This coming week is the birthday of my blog.  Yes, on July 15th of last year, just a random Wednesday, I decided to start a blog.  I really didn't have any grand plan, I didn't even have a digital camera. Can you believe it?  I just decided to try and maybe learn something new.  Here it is a year later and I'm kinda proud of myself that I never gave up. 

It's certainly not the grandest of blogs, but it is all mine :) So, to celebrate I'm offering up some humble candy in the form of stamps, ink and bling. 

A better view of the stamps from Hero Arts.

 All you have to do to win is leave a comment and I will enter you.  Just check back and see if you are the random winner on next Thursday July 15th.

Thank you so much to everyone who visits, follows and or comments...You are awesome and I am grateful :)

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Basic Grey, Markers: Copic, Stamps: Hero Arts, Nesties, Felt and Rhinestones from my supplies.
