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.

Hi Everyone!

I'm taking a break from the Halloween items on the blog, and I worked on something for Christmas. Yes, I'm plugging away, trying to reach my 60 or so cards I send out each year.  Hmmm, I am no where near that number, but I am one closer now :)

  Lindsay, of Lindsay's Stamp Stuff,  has just released a new set of digital images and papers called Winterland and that's what I used on this card today. Lucky for you, today thru October 16th, everything in the shop is 30% off!

The neat part about this set is that the images are colored in already, so it makes for quick crafting.  A good thing if you are mass producing cards for the holidays, don'tcha think?

I used the sleigh image along with the two digi papers found in this set jam packed with winter images. The colors are bright and fun too.  A nice change from the usual red and green.
I added an embossed layer under my main image and the sentiment was a traditional stamp.  The die cut snowflakes were embellished with a bit of bling, and I found this mini candy cane in my stash...Fits perfectly tucked under the bow. 

Here is a lookie at the Winterland set of images and papers in this new set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.

Remember, the 30% off sale is on  though October 16th.  Be sure to visit Linday's personal blog for her weekly freebie and check out the awesome creations by my team mates all made with products from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff!
