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.

Masculine Birthday

Hi Everyone!

It's Saturday! I don't have any big plans, but I'm still looking forward to spending time with my husband. We may also get together with friends to watch the football games on Sunday.

Enough boring non card talk...This is a card I sent to my cousin for his birthday this week. He is a he, so there was the whole guy card thing to contend with, but he is a wine lover/collector, so at least I knew I was using my one and only wine related stamp. That narrowed it down. I tried to keep things symmetrical and unfussy, so this is the result. This picture shows the image and sentiment up on their pop dots.

I did decorate the inside with some patterned paper and the Happy Birthday sentiment, but as I am typing this, I realized I forgot to take a picture of it and of course it has been sent off. Oh well. Next time.

Until then...Thanks for dropping in!

Details-Stamps: Stampin' Up, PTI, Paper: Office Max, DCWV, Markers: Marvy, Sugarloaf, Nesties, Ribbon and brads from my supplies.

That is really cute Karin! I like that the details aren't glirly but really finish the card well. Nice work!

I love how you used red, yet it's not girly. :-) Love it.

BTW, I'm German too :-)..... from Bad Hersfeld (about 1.5 hours north of Frankfurt)
