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.

A Cherry on Top

Hi Everyone!

How has your week been going?  Rod had Monday off due to the federal holiday, so I'm totally goofed up and a day off...lol.  Funny how a difference in routine can do that so quickly :)

Things have changed up for the design team for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  We will all be posting our projects to our blogs throughout the week, and Lindsay herself will do a wrap up of all our projects on her blog on Fridays.  How cool is that?  You will now be able to see her digi stuff being used all week long, and the DT blogs can be found on my side bar on the right.  Unless life gets in the way, I will most likely keep Thursday as my day to showcase something made from her shop at My Grafico and Lindsay will have her usual blog freebie on Thursdays as well.

Now that that's all settled, on to my card.  I worked on building up my stash of birthday cards this past weekend and here is one of them.  I used this cute cupcake stand from the set Sweet Stuff.  It's very pink, sparkly and girlie and totally fits the stamped sentiment I paired with it.

Here is a close up of the Stickles and Glossy Effects I added to the cherries.

Here are all the confections that can be found in the set Sweet Stuff.

Thanks for visiting today and stop by Lindsay's blog today for your freebie!

So many pretty embellies on this card... the pearls and the lace add so much softness while the papers and the cupcakes are so bright and cheerful. I love the way you have tied in brightness with soft touches.
