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.

Hi Everyone,

I'm really skipping ahead with the card I made to show you today.  It's the card I made for my niece who is graduating from high school in June :)  I chose to use this cute Grad School digi from the I Brake for Digis store...Aren't those fish the sweetest?

I colored the fish with my Copic markers and cut out the image with my Spellbinders die.  I also added a couple of extra fish on pop dots to the lower left corner for some dimension.  The blue embossed circles were meant to simulate bubbles in the water and the sentiment was stamped. 

Thanks for dropping by today and remember to use the code SAVE10KARIN when shopping at the
