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.

Card Patterns Sponsorship

Hello Everyone!

Today DRS Designs is sponsoring the challenge over at the Card Patterns blog.  The prize is a $10.00 gift certificate to the DRS Designs Store! This is one of my favorite sketch challenges around, they aways have a great design to work with.  Here is today's :

This is my take on it.  I rounded the corners like the sketch, but instead of rectangles, I used the Simple Berry Branch along with the sentiment Jingle All the Way for a clean and simple look. I used a dark evergreen color for the ink and paper, but it looks black in the photo.  I promise it's festive in real life!

Here is a close up of the added red Stickles.

I hope that you can play along with us for a chance at a prize to the DRS Designs store!

Lothian Crafts-Christmas
