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.

A Perfect Summer Day

Good Morning! 
I'm so happy to bring you a bright cheerful card today...And please read to the end of this post for all the DRS Designs giveaway info!
This adorable verse comes from the collection at DRS Designs and its called Broken Mower Greeting (G863) and I thought it would be perfect on a summer themed card. 

The sun is a yellow circle punch that I covered in stamping glitter, and the clouds were made by simply sponging them on a blue background with white pigment ink.  The grass was created buy cutting 2 strips of green paper, stamping them using the Easy Grass Background (E059) and then cutting fringes to simulate the blades of grass. 
The sentiment is highlighted with some yellow chalk sponging and the refreshing drink is from the stamp Drink Lineup (G173)  There are 4 drinks on this stamp, but I just cut this one out after coloring it with my Copics and adhered it to the card.
