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.

Keep the Sun in your Heart

Good Monday Morning!

I hope you had a great weekend...Ours was peaceful and included a picnic on the lawn at Blossom before the Cleveland Orchestra concert.  Oh, and the night time temps came down briefly, so we were able to enjoy a bonfire with marshmallows one night too.  Yum!

OK, on to the crafty goodness :)  My card today was made with some iPaper from Amber Ink.  I decided to make this sweet card using the umbrella image from the set named Rainy Day.  I paper pieced the umbrella, and used some traditional stamps from my stash to complete the look.  I love pairing digi stamps with traditional ones, you get so much mileage out of your craft supplies that way.
I know this set is all about rain, but the weather has been so beautiful here, I decided to make it into a happy, sunny card by adding a computer generated sentiment.  I couldn't resist taking the photo outside in the sunshine too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and if you haven't been to Amber Ink yet, what are you waiting for?

Challenges this card is linked to are as follows:
Bunny Zoe-Summer Days

Details not listed above-Stamps: PTI, Practicing Creativity, Ink: Stampin' Up!, Nesties, Ribbon and rhinestones from my supplies.
