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.

Summer Watermelon

Hi Everyone,

 We are having a stretch of fab weather for a few days this week.  Much better than the crazy, violent stuff that came though on Sunday night.  My neighbors tree came down, (my mother in law may have to have a couple of hers taken down because of severe limb damage) and there was a power outage that my dad is still dealing with.  Yuck.  So, now that it's 70 degrees and no humidity, I'm trying to take advantage and work outside and stain my deck and gazebo.  Double Yuck.  My deck is pretty big.  The square footage is as big as my first house, but at 700 sq. ft. my first house was pretty small :)

Anyway, this cute summery melon comes from the set Strawberries and Watermelons from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  I was so happy to pair the image with some matching melon paper from DCWV.  I think I will use it for a thank you card and just make a sentiment on my computer that says, "Thanks a Melon" or "You're one in a Melon".  I love puns on cards!
Here is a peek at all the images in the set.  So great for summertime crafting for all you digital stamping fans.

Today I am please to say that we have a new member to the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff team.  Her name is Tracy Vinson and I know she will have some fun ideas to share in the coming weeks.  Be sure to give her a big welcome and visit Lindsay and the rest of the team blogs below.
