Welcome!

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.

The Real B-Day Card and the Blog Candy Winner

Hi Everyone!

If you were here last week, you know it was Lindsay's birthday.  The design team from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff all posted birthday cards in honor of her.  I didn't want Lindsay to see what her card that I made her looked like before she got it in the mail, so I couldn't post the real one.  Until today. 

This is the card I made for her using her own set Crafty Tools and Puns and a sentiment which is a traditional stamp.
Isn't this a cute image for a crafty friend?  I used the same paper as I did on the card from last week,

and I tried to capture the embossing I did on the cup and scissor handle in the close up. 

Here is a look at the entire set...That's 16 digi stamps for only $5.00.



Make sure you visit Lindsay and the rest to the DT blogs today, and scroll down to see if you won my blog candy from last week.


Challenges this card is linked to are as follows:

Crazy Challenge-Hip to be Square
Whoopsie Daisy-Vibrant Colors

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Comany, Basic Grey, Stamps: Inkadinkado, Markers:Copic, rhinestones and ribbon from my supplies.

I  wanted to copy and paste my random number thingy so you could all see it, but somehow I must be doing it wrong.  So anyway, you will just have to trust me that the number that came up is 8.  And the winner of the blog candy is....Margie
I will make sure to get those goodies out to you!

Great card! I totally agree with the sentiment, although i'd have to say I feel more that way about scrapbooking than I do stamping.

LOL! So true...stamping is addictive. Truly what is a person to do with thousands of pieces of paper? And if they didn't think that was enough they go out and buy more!! Never to much craft supplies.

This card is PERFECT! Great set of digi stamps!!
Thanks for playing along with us this week at Practical Scrappers.
