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.

Pink Ice Skates

Hi Everyone!

DRS Designs is the sponsor this week at the Card Patterns blog.

Here is the sketch...

And here is my card.
I decided to that these ice skates looked girlie to me with that skate lace tied into a bow.  If I was still a young girl, I would have loved to have pink ice skates!  I embossed the background, sanded it to bring out the pattern and added some velvet ric rack along with a MS punched border.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the DRS Designs new releases.

Why not play along at Card Patterns and have a chance to win a $15.00 voucher to the DRS Designs store?
