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.

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!  We got to spend time with family and friends so it was a good one for us :) 

I don't like to post photos of other peoples children on the Net, so I don't have anything to show you from that day, but we went to a birthday party for our friend's son who turned 9.  We found out he REALLY dislikes Justin Beiber.  Why? I'm thinking maybe he doesn't like the songs, or his hair...Nope.  He says it's because Justin is distracting all the girls away from him!  That was the absolute BEST and most hilariously honest thing I have heard in a long time :) Probably made my weekend.

Here is one random photo from this weekend, courtesy of my niece...

This was taken at my sister-in-law's house :)

OK,on with the cards...

My post today uses one of the new Christmas stamps from DRS Designs.  I paired the Nativity Noel with the sentiment stamp God's Love Christmas and New Year Greeting and the background was created with the Starry background stamp.
The sentiment itself is longer, but I only used a portion of it for the front of my card.  I used a border punch and a ribbon to tie into my coloring on the main image.

Thanks for the visit today and stop by DRS Designs to see all the newest Christmas stamps!

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Punch: EK Success, Markers: Copic, Ink: Stampin' Up, ribbon from my supplies.
