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.

Strawberries and Tuesday Morning Sketches

Good Morning All!

This week Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is sponsoring the challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

All you have to do to play along, is choose your favorite sketch from the previous sketches and you could be the winner of a set of stamps from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff!

This is the sketch I chose to use...
My card today uses an image from the set Strawberries and Watermelon.  Goodness, I wish the summer fruit season lasted longer, don't you?  I get so tired of apples and bananas in the winter.  The berries don't seem to have the same sweet taste in the off season.  These look good enough to eat right off the card, lol.

I made this little pinwheel embellishment to fit the challenge on the CARDS blog, which was of course, pinwheels!
Also, I finally used this border punch I got after this past Christmas.  It was one of those things I *had* to have, and here it took me over half a year to use it.  Sigh. So typical of me.  It is cute on this card though, and it kind of reminds me of those paper doilies.

Here is a look at the entire set.

The entire design team from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is using a their favorite sketch from Tuesday Morning.  Stop by their blogs for some inspiration and link up your card for a chance to win!
