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.

A Shooting Star

Hi Everyone!

How was your weekend? Are you all decorated for the holidays? I have to say I'm good in that area.  I was overwhelmed a one point, then I decided to only put up 2 trees instead of 3.  When my mom passed away 5 years ago, I brought all the ornaments from their tree to my house (My dad just has a small, pre-decorated one now.) and I started having another tree.  Then it hit me.  Why do I HAVE to have 3? Like that is some kind of norm.

So, I fit all of their decorations on the tree with ours and then I have a themed white & gold tree in my decoration living room. Which no one sits in except Christmas and Easter...lol. I'm very happy that I'm back to only 2.

Now, on to my card that has nothing to do with trees!

This uses one of the new releases from DRS Designs.  Last week on my card here, I used this Shooting Star stamp, but only the flourishes for the background. I loved how that looked, but I also felt that this cute star needed to be the center of attention. Hence, this card.

I used the Starry Background stamp to create that paper behind,  and the other piece was embossed with swirls to match the tail of the star. The sentiment is named A Special Wish Star Filled Greeting.

Here is a close up.  I stamped it on the main piece and then again on a piece of yellow paper.  I cut it out, covered it in glitter and popped it up so that it was off set.

Be sure to visit DRS Designs to see all of the newly released Christmas stamps.

Thanks for the visit!

Hello Karin,
This is a wonderful card.
The little detail of the glitter star makes it complete.
And, Karin, I think you will have a lot of work when Christmas is over. Two trees where you have to put the decoration away.
But in the meantime, enjoye your lovely trees. I look forward to see some pictures of it.
