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.

Happy Easter

Hi Everyone,

So sorry I haven't been blogging about much of anything of a personal nature lately.  Trust me when I say life has just been a bit more hectic than usual, and I'm struggling to get some of the "need to know" stuff out to you on time.  I miss telling you about movies and books and food and what-not...Though I really haven't had time for much of that what-not stuff either :)  I'm hanging in there, and I hope you are hanging in there with me too.

I have another card today made with a couple of the new releases over at DRS Designs.  I'm in such a need for spring time weather...I'm longing for sunshine, a daffodil, sheesh even a blade of grass would be nice ;)

I used this cute Big Bunny Face with with the new Happy Easter greeting.  Doesn't this just make you smile?  The Easter bunny face is adorable and in my head, this is what the REAL Easter bunny looks like...lol.  I colored him just a bit and then cut him out. 

I also stamped the blue card stock with the Lines O'Plenty; it's subtle so not sure if it shows up in the photo above, so here is a closer shot.

It's also my day to post at the DRS Designs blog, so stop by over there to see another pretty Easter card...Here's a peek...

What a lovely Easter card that is... love it's clean and uncluttered look. Nothing like classic cards for that real elegance to stand out.

Came across your blog while I was at Card Creator's...

I like how you wrote about the "i" in your name and that it has come in handy after so many years.Lol!
