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.

With Sympathy

Hi Everyone,

I'm here showing off another sympathy card I made.  I never got to use this flowering branch image from the set Birds and Branches from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, so I thought with us not being past spring quite yet, it would make a lovely focal image for a comforting card.  I colored it with Copics and added some pink Stickles to the centers of the flowers.  Simple and easy to mail.

Here is the set in it's entirety :

Not much extra chit chat.  I seem to be so busy with other things this time of year, I really don't know where to begin.  I do wish the rain and storms would stop, though :)  Be sure to visit Lindsay's Blog this week.  She has a great idea for storing ribbon! 

I hope those of you in the USA have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Details not listed above- Paper: The Paper Company, K & Company, Punch: Martha Stewart, Ribbon: Darice

Very pretty Karin! I love the texture. I really need to get in gear and get some sympathy cards made before I need them.

I hope you have a fabulous holiday week end!
