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.

Tis the Season

Hi Everyone,

As I type this, I'm still feeling chilled from my morning walk outside.  It really feels like holidays are right around the corner :)  And I don't mean Halloween...lol.  I'm so not ready.  Then at the same time, why should I be ready when Christmas it 2 months away? Still, it always creeps up so fast and I'm scrambling at the last minute.

Anyway, here is my card share for today.  I used the new Christmas Follies set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff for this card.  Using printables is a departure for me, but they are quick and easy for when you need to mass produce at Christmas time.  If you have SCAL and a cutting machine, it's even faster.  I printed out the snowman twice and fussy cut one of them so that I could pop it up, and I added some glitter for a snowy look.

Here is the entire set:

Lindsay's Stamp Stuff also has this printable set for making stuff for craft fairs this season.  These would also be great for stocking stuffers and teacher gifts too!

Well, that's another finished Christmas card.  I'll go ahead and say it...Yay me :)  Please stop by Lindsay's blog and see what she has been up to.  There are always freebies, videos, and organizational tips to help boost your creativity over there.  And as always, my team mates blogs are on my side bar.

Have a great day!

I love the lace and papers you used! The snowman, with the bit of glitter, is a cutie!

I hope you warm up soon. It's cold and ugly here.

Have a great day!
