Welcome!

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.

All Occasion Card

Hi Everyone!

I'm starting out this post with the sale banner today.  It's a quick one, today only, so pop by and check out
 Lindsay's Stamp Stuff today for your 40% off savings :)


Depending on what you buy, maybe you can make this:


I made an all occasion card for my stash, and used the hot air balloon image from Steampunk Style, printing it on Kraft paper.  I thought about glittering it up, but after looking at it, I decided less is more, since there really is MORE on this card already. The ribbon and doily make it foofy enough, so I just let it be.

Here is the entire set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff:


Since I'm running late today, I'm going to keep the extra chit chat for a different post.  Be sure to check out Lindsay's blog, she always has something new to share and if it's hot where you live, (it was a scorcher here yesterday!) remember to Stay Cool!
