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.

Pet Sympathy

Hi Everyone and Happy Cinco de Mayo,

Even if you don't generally celebrate the holiday, in honor of it, there is a one day sale! Yay!

Today's card was made for Lindsay from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  Last week we found out that her beloved cat passed away.  I wanted her to know that I was thinking about her, since it's always hard when a pet who has been in the family for so long passes away. 

I used this cute Kitty image from the set Stick Dog & Cat.  This set is actually free and it's and add on set to the People Mix and Match set available in her shop.

Here is a look at both of them, and remember, everything is 40% off today only:

If you haven't been by to visit my teammates, their blogs are on my side bar.  We post projects made with Lindsay's Stamp Stuff all through the week.  Please visit Lindsay on her personal blog too for tons of tips and more freebies.

Have a great day!
