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 Card

Hi Everyone!

I'm completely out of birthday cards.  Seriously, not one extra in my stash, so I thought I better go ahead and make a few to have on hand.  I think this one may already be spoken for though, I have my aunt and mother in law, both with birthdays in November. 

I used the versatile set Doodle Flowers from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff and everything at her My Grafico shop is 40% off!

I printed out the flower twice so that I could pop it up and curve the petals. All I did was color it to match the papers. 

Here is are all the images in this one set....Did I mention it's 40% off???

My Grafico is also hosting a Halloween contest with fantastic prizes like a Cuttlebug!!! If you want a chance at winning, just click here for all the details.

I just had to share this great fall photo taken this past weekend here.  I only had my phone with me, so it's not the best, but the colors were breath taking! Say what you want about the lousy, forever lasting winters in Cleveland...but autumn in the Metro Parks is AWESOME!!!!

Now, off you go to visit Lindsay and the rest of the design team.  I know they will have great crafty inspiration on their blogs like always :)

Hello Karin,
What a marvelous card. And everything fits together.
Is that a view you have from your town? It's beautiful. I love those autumn colors. Here I only have the sea... everything is flat.
Have a nice day,
Greetings from Belgium
