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.

Good Morning!

I have to admit, this is a first for me.  I made a Scrapling!   Don't know what a Scrapling is?  It's a tiny card that measures 1 1/4"X 4 1/4" and it's named after that scrap of paper you have left over after cutting a traditional A2 sized card down to a square.
I decided to continue making summer themed cards, and I used Citrus Background (H193) and stamped it all over the base.  I then very casually colored in random fruits, leaving some open.  The cute drink came from Drink Line Up (G173) which I cut out and adhered.  The simple, but great sentiment Enjoy Today (C1145) pretty much sums up what we should all do more often!  Some matching ribbon finishes it off...I even took the photo of this cutie card on my deck outside. (wink)

A scrapling sounds like a great idea, and it can be used as a bookmark after it's been given away as a card. Yours is great--colorful and fun looking.
