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.

Congrats Grad!

Hi Everyone,

With the graduation season in full swing, I thought I would show off the card I made using the newly released stamps from DRS Designs.  The image is called Teacher Tools and I colored it with my Copic markers and then added the sentiment called Bright Graduation.

The layout is not groundbreaking, but I was pretty pleased with myself for popping up my shiny apple and making a little diploma as an embellishment!

The Stamp A Day Give Away is going on all month over at the DRS Designs Blog, so stop by the blog for your chance to win! 

And if you haven't seen all of the new releases from DRS Designs yet, you can find them right here.  Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

This is wonderful! I love the image you've chosen. Totally appropriate for a graduation card, but not the traditional image most people go for. Great colors too :) Thanks for playing along at Scrapbookaholic by Abby.
