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.

Paper from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff

Hi Everyone!

Click here to win

My card today was made with the contest at My Grafico in mind.  All you have to do is click on the banner and you can read all about it and see the great prizes up for grabs!

When Lindsay, from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, released this set Winterland, I was excited and printed out the images and paper right away, so I'm using some of the patterned paper for my card today.

My card is loaded with die cuts...I used my ornament punch and coordinated it with the background paper that I cut out using my Nesties and layered on top of my ornament embossing. The snowflakes are a Cuttlebug die as well. What would I do with out my Cuttlebug? If it weren't for Lindsay's paper and my Bug, this card would not exhist.
I love these bright fun colors and they are a nice change from the traditional holiday colors.  Even the hubby gave it a thumbs up.

So, how are you coming along with the holiday card making??? I was surprised to find out that I'm at about 42 finished cards.  Not too bad, but I need around 60.  You may be seeing a lot more quick and easy from me here on the blog. Time sure is going by fast :)

Hrllo Karin,
It's a brilliant card again. And, yes, what would we do without our CB. I love that little green machiene. Exept for the fact that, here in Europe, all those craftstuff is so expensive.
