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.

Easter Card

Good Morning Everyone & Happy March,

We had a crazy amount of rain yesterday, and lots of flooding in our area, so I'm showing off a colorful Easter card to lift my spirits.  This verse (Blooming Easter Greeting) is one of the newest stamps released by DRS Designs.  I attempted to jump on the scallop trend bandwagon before it's gone and we are on to something else.  I don't have a true scallop border punch, but I thought this one could work in achieving that type of  effect. 

When my friend Diane used these butterflies on a card recently I was reminded  that I have barely used this pretty die myself, so on my spring card they went today.  The purple rhinestones were an RAK from her as well, and I'm so happy they found a home on my card today. Thanks again Diane!

That is going to have to be all from me today, but you know the drill...It's my day at DRS Designs, have a look at my St. Patty's Day card over on the blog!

Thanks and have a great day!
