Welcome!

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.

I'm Here for You

Hi Everyone!


My card today uses the umbrella image from the set Puddle Fun from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  This set will be retired from the shop at My Grafico, so it is on sale for only $1.00!  How cool of a bargain is that?  Hurry though, the sale only lasts until Sunday. 


I did a bit of paper piecing on the image and added a caring sentiment that I thought was fitting for the shelter of an umbrella.

And my closer shot...


Stop by Lindsay's blog for her freebie as well as the other great projects the design team has to show you.


Thanks for popping by!
