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.

Time to Relax

Good Morning Everyone,

I don't know about you, but with all the dark, dreary days we have had here in Ohio, I sure could use something colorful and cheerful.  That's where the inspiration for my card came from today.  It looks like my little Sun Bathing Bee from I Brake For Digis is on vacation.  Exactly where I wish I was, this very minute :) 

The image is colored with Copics and the background and sentiment were created with traditional stamps to echo the flowers on the bee's beach towel.

Here is a close up of the Stickles I added to the wings and the Glossy Effects on the sunglasses for some shine.
