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.

Wishing you...

Hi Everyone,

I'm back today with another card made with one of my new stamps from DRS Designs.

One of the new releases is this sweet little Snowman in a Box.  This is a great stamp if you want to make a quick card, it's a little scene all by itself.  I paired it with a sentiment from the current catalog, called Snowflakes and Winter Cheer.

I embossed the top half of the card and added a few random gems.  I thought the pom pom trim looked a bit like snowballs, (I know they are blue...no comments please ;) ) so I added it along the top.

Here is a closer shot of that little snowman...

I love simple little cards you can pop in the mail to a friend just because, don't you?

You can see all of the new releases at the DRS Designs online store...Have a great day!

Fantastic! Great white space and I love the bling (and the red of course)! Thanks for playing along with my red challenge.

It's such a perfect example of simple beauty! The partial embossing is great and the bling really makes it pop. That sentiment and snowman are adorable. The poms, though, really are the sweetest!
