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 Birthday

Hi Everyone,

The card I'm showing off today, was the one I posted over at DRS Designs earlier in the week.  I was so happy with the way this clean and simple birthday card turned out, that I had to post it at my blog for those of you who missed it.

I made it using two of the newest stamps from their latest release. This Giant Open Balloon just cried out to be paper pieced, so I stamped it on paper in primary colors and aheared it to a Kraft base with pop dots,  I did cut off the string portion of the stamped image, so that I could attatch some real twine to them, for texture and interest.

I love the font of this Brush Birthday Greeting and it fit nicely in the corner.  I added some bling just because.  It's a birthday card for goodness sake!

If you haven't been by DRS Designs to see the new releases yet, you can see them all right here.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you are having a great week!
