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.

For You From Me

Hi Everyone,

My project today is one that was made in about 5 minutes.  My niece's 18th birthday was last week, but we celebrated over the weekend, so that her sister could come home from college for the party.  I had the gift wrapped, but 15 min before we had to leave, I felt like it need a little something else.  I ran over to my stash, and found these little cherries I had printed out a long time ago from the set Sweet Stuff from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  I think I actually squealed with delight at what a good match they were for the paper, so I made a simple tag for an embellishment. 


All I did was color it with Copic markers, and layer it on some matching card stock.  I wish I had a stamp that said, "For you from us", but I had no time print anything myself (I said this took 5 min, and for real it did). Luckily I remembered to snap a photo before running out the door ;) 

If you are wondering why I'm not showing you the card I made her, it's because I used a card I made last August.  The family is headed to France for vacation this summer, so I thought this card was perfect.

Anyway, here is the set these useful cherries came from:

That's Jennifer the birthday girl in the middle...Gosh they are just so cute :) 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Lindsay on her blog today as well.  Have a good one!
