Welcome!

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.

Freddie had a rough day...

Hi Everyone! 

I have to say that the "Freddie" images from I Brake for Digis have to be among my favorites from the shop.  This one is named Happy Hour Freddie and he looks like he wishes it was Friday instead of Monday today!

I added a stamped sentiment and pulled out my neglected brads for embellishments.  I think they help to keep the card more masculine, since this will eventually make it's way to a guy.


Still, I had to add a bit of sparkle to the flies and popped up the jar for added interest.


Thanks for dropping by on this Monday and don't forget to use the code SAVE10KARIN and save yourself 10% when shopping at I Brake For Digis.

Challenges for this card:
Fresh Brewed Designs-2 or More Embellies (Stickles and brads)


Details not listed above-Stamps: DRS Designs, Paper: The Paper Company, We R Memory Keepers, Copic Markers, Stickles, Nesties

This is so awesome, Karin! Freddie is fabulous and I have certainly been there with the rough days, so I know how he feels. However, I think I'd skip those fantastic glittery flies =) Love that added dimension. Thanks for joining the Sisterhood of Crafters for this challenge. Your card rocks!
