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.

Caught a Bug?

Hi Everyone!

I can tell it's spring time with all the cute bug stamps I've been seeing around lately :)  Bugs are always cute on cards, rarely in real life.  Luckily these cutie pies are on my card made with some newly released  stamps from DRS Designs. 

I have to say that one of my favorites of the new releases is this great design element of Polka Dots.  It was designed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder in mind and I just love the backgrounds you can make with it.  I have something similar from another company, however this one I love more,  because of it's size.  It's a full 6 inches, so it fits across the bottom of my card completely and there is no lining up of anything to make it across.  LOVE that!  The Ladybug with Flower and Sally Snail are from the current catalog, but they were the perfect images to color up to match the new sentiment, "Caught a Bug".

It's pretty straightforward, but this is the type of card that I would make at my little craft table to send to someone to cheer them up.  My husband said, " You want those words hanging off like that"?  It's called a sentiment.  And yes.  Yes I do.  It just adds a little visual interest, right?  Please tell me you card makers out there get it.  lol

You can see all of the new stamps from DRS Designs right here.  As always, your brighten my day with your visits and comments.

LOL, isn't it hilarious the things our husbands say about our cards? I just love this sweet card and it would certainly make a sickie feel better! I need to remember to try hanging my sentiments off the edge like this. ;)
