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.

Green Beer

Hi Everyone,

Today DRS Designs is rolling out their newest stamps...Are you ready for the next holiday after Valentine's Day? 

Yes, it's St. Patrick's Day!   Or in my house, March Madness...Yes, the big college basketball tournament begins the same day.  All the bars with the big screen TVs will be packed around here.  So, in honor of both these events, I thought I would show off the fun Drink Green Beer greeting for my first card on the blog.  I stamped it in green and embossed it with rainbow embossing powder for some shine.  I used the new Celtic Knot for a border along the bottom and added the Beer Mug as an embellishment.

Here is a close up of the Celtic Knot, which is a great design element.  After coloring my Beer Mug, I cut it out and embellished it with Glossy Accents and Stickles on the foam.

There are so many more St. Patty's Day stamps, as well as some Easter stamps being released today, so stop by the DRS Designs store to see what's new.   Want some more St. Patrick's Day inspiration?  Today is my day over at the DRS Designs blog, so pop on my and check out my other card there! 

 Here's a tiny peek ;)

Have a great day!

Great card Karin! Love the sparkle and the green beer image! We can completely relate to March Madness in my house too, as an MSU fan, those playoffs are so exciting!

March Madness is big at my house, too! These is a great card, Karin. I love how you glossed and stickled the beer mug in the first one!

I {heart} this! I love all things Irish and I love the sentiment, colors, and images on your card. I HAVE TO HAVE that Celtic knot stamp!

Hey Karin,
Nice cards you made. I love that little bit of stickles on the beer. I went over to the DRS-blog and that bearcard is so cute.
I saw on our TV how the weather is in the USA. I hope that you escaped from it.

So clever Karin! Green beer and Irish coffee - It really is the luck of the Irish isn't it?
