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.

Maybe a Cupcake?

Hi Everyone,

I made this card for someone who was recovering from some minor surgery over the holidays, but I'm hoping the cupcake helps me say goodbye.  Sadly this is my last post for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.  I have decided to step down from the design team for personal reasons, nothing bad or sad, don't worry.  I just will have less time to devote to card making, so I thought it was the only fair thing to do.  I will dearly miss the interaction with some of the sweetest design teammates out there, but at least in the land of blogs, we all have a spot to visit each other.

Mostly my thanks go out to Lindsay herself, she gave me my first design team spot when I was a blogging newbie, and has been nothing but generous and gracious.  I hope that you will continue to visit her personal blog, The Frugal Crafter.  No one out there has more clever ideas and tips than she does!

Cupcakes on this card from the set Sweet Stuff II

Thanks so much  for visiting me and now I think I need a real cupcake.
