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.

Have a Brilliant Fall!

Hi Everyone!

I thought I would post this card today to bring you some joy.  That's what I feel when I look at this sweet little guy jumping in the pile of leaves.  Do you remember doing that?  We never had enough leaves in my yard growing up, so I had to do this at my friend Kellee's house.  I so could do this now where I live, how sad that I don't want to...Or rather, I wouldn't be able to walk for a week if I jumped like that now. lol.

Here are the stamps I used and they are all from the new releases at DRS Designs

See those little leaf brads under the corner of the sentiment?  I thought they were so cute when I got them and I still do, but I've been trying to use them up for two years now...Only a million more to go!

Thanks for the visit today and I hope your day is brilliant on every level!

Hello Karin,
That's exactly the pile of leaves I saw when I went out for my shopping. I love to walk in them and hear that cracking sound under my feet. But jump?... no thanks... that's a long time ago.
I love that card. It gives a good feeling to start the day.

Ahhhhh! I love it! It just makes me smile =)Those leaves really do look inviting, but I don't recall ever doing this as a kid. What a dull child I was!
Clearly, you should place your order....if it's been sitting in the checkout cart, it's ALL must haves!

Since moving to Arizona, I miss crunchy autumn leaves and I'm loving your card to remind me how fun they can be. Love that sentiment too!
