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.

Hi Everyone,

I want to tell you that this is the last card that I'm making with the set Halloween Doodles by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  I really do.  I have enough Halloween cards, so I think this Frankie (isn't he sweet?) will have to be the last one for this year.

However, did you notice that darling little scarecrow in the set below?   I think he might make an appearance on a Thanksgiving card...lol!  The card above was made from scraps. Everything, even the die cuts were from my box of stuff that I save if I decided not to use it.  The only thing I cut from scratch (off the spool) was that purple ribbon.  Pretty good, eh?

Well, short and sweet from me today.  I have some ladies coming over for a card making/ swap session, so while I'm not blogging, I'll be stampin'!

For more inspiration stop by Lindsay's blog, The Frugal Crafter...

Have a great day!

Karin, I don't know how you do it time and again - you really do have an "i" for paper. Love all the combinations you come up with, flavors, textures, feelings - all very artful. LOVE the coloring on Frankie here. Great card! Thanks for sharing.

i am in love with Frankie lol, isn't he just a cutie, definitely wouldn't scare me...I think. Had to laugh at the cats lol. Cats eyes are little lights covered in rubber that run up the middle of a main road. You are not supposed to drive on them though lol, make the car go bumbity bump lol.
