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.

Birdie Birthday

Hi Everyone!

It sure has turned out to be a great weekend for me. The weather wasn't anywhere near as bad as they predicted. Cold, yes. Not the ten tons of snow though, so Rod and I were able to meet up with my friend from high school (and then we went to the same college too) on Friday night.

I regret to say that even though we live less than a mile apart we rarely talk or see each other. Probably a once a year thing, but with old friends it seems like the conversation just flows so naturally. It was great to be able to catch up; just so warm and wonderful.

Even though we go long stretches of time between calls, I always know it's him on the other end. He always greets me with, "Hola Carmen!" (My name from Spanish class in high school-LOL!) Of course after having a great time and lots of laughs, we always promise to do better and not let so much time pass between get-togethers. Let's see if we follow through on it this time!

Enough with the personal blabbing...Here is a card I made yesterday since it was so cold that I didn't leave the house. I even had the hubster go get the newspaper and mail at the end of the driveway, so I literally didn't step foot outside my door! I followed the sketch from Taylored Expressions and the challenge from Crazy 4 Challenges (make a birthday card), to make a more masculine type card for my stash. At least hope it's masculine. In my book, if it has dark colors, no bow or glitter, it qualifies as a guy card.

Enjoy what's left of you weekend and thanks for dropping in :)

Details- Ink: Versafine, Stampin' Up, Stamps: Papertrey Ink, Stampin' Up, Paper: Bazill, Cosmo Cricket, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Nestibilities, Marvy Punches, Brads from my stash.

Apparently we have the same book - it's a guy card in mine, too =) LOL! Beautiful, rich colors.

So nice when you can always pick up like the last visit with an old friend.
