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.

Easy Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone!

Click here to win
If you've visited me this week, you know I've been busy.  I have had my MIL's birthday, book club, Bible study, prepped the food boxes to be passed out to the needy for Thanksgiving, my aunt's birthday and tons of yard work.  Those leaves are driving me crazy! So, my project is super simple, for all of you, who are like me and are quickly running out of time.  But first...

To celebrate the season, Lindsay's Stamp Stuff at MyGrafico is having a 40% off sale, so now is the time to grab what you need for the holidays...Woo Hoo!

For my Lindsay's Stamp Stuff post today, I'm using one of her Bold Black and White digi papers from this set for some easy peasy Christmas cards. 
I printed the damask pattern on to some red paper, and in a jiffy I made up 3 cards for my personal use.  See...

First card uses a free digi stamp from the Papercrafts site, and the other two are traditional stamps from my supplies.  I left them flat and mostly embellishment free for easier mailing.

Remember those great Halloween Labels that were a best seller in her shop?  Well, Lindsay's Stamp Stuff now has these Vintage Christmas Labels!

How cool would these look matched up with some of that paper?? Get them for the holidays while they are on sale people...They are 40% off!

You will also want to mark your calender for November 26th because Lindsay is hosting a Virtual Crop in the Crop Room at My Grafico Community.

It will be lots of fun and you will be able to share ideas and maybe even get your holiday cards done before December :)

Thanks for stopping by and visit Lindsay and the rest of the team for great projects and freebies too!
