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.

An Update and an InStyle Stamps Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Thanks so much for all you sweet comments earlier regarding my cryptic post about the health of a family member.  Frankly, I'm still a little exhausted from the drama of three days of doctors, tests, waiting in the ER and nervously waiting the outcome from a procedure for my mother in law, to give you anymore details. Other than, at the moment everything seems to be OK.  She is in the hospital and recovering.

I try not to ramble about tons of personal downers here on the blog o roonie, but I was feeling SO BAD about not getting around to seeing and commenting on  all of your fun cards and various" makes", that I needed you to know that something was up.  Have I said lately that you all are awesome?  If not, consider yourself just that.

On to a bit of card stuff :)

Today is the first sketch challenge of the year at InStyle Stamps! 

Here is the sketch...

We would love it if you played along with us.  Just go to the InStyle blog for all the deets and to link up your card!

Thanks again, Everyone!

I hope your mother in law is recovering quickly.
And everybody wil understand that your mind is somewhere else and you have no time to bloghop.
