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.

Jolly Penguin

Hi Everyone!

My card today is jam packed with stamp-y goodness from DRS Designs. I used a combination of newly released holiday stamps, along with some older favorites to create this sweet card.

I made the patterned paper with the new Holly background stamp, by stamping in green and coloring the berries in red. I used the new Holly 3" Giga Oval because it matched the background paper I created and stamped Percy Penguin for my focal image. Isn't he cute? This was then cut out and layered using and oval Nestie.  The sentiment Jolly Holiday finished it off.

Have you started on your Holiday cards yet? Maybe you could make few extras and support our troops by making cards for Operation Write Home. Click here or on the photo on my side bar and find out how you could  win some stamps from DRS Designs!
