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.

It's Summertime!

Hi Everyone,

I have a great summery card to show you today, made with one of the newly released stamps from DRS Designs.  This company is definitely know for it's unique sentiments and I chose to make this new Cool Summertime Greeting stamp the focal point of my card. 

 I played off the words and colored up the lemonade image from the stamp Drink Line Up and  cut it out for an embellishment.

The other thing DRS Designs is known for, is all the background stamps they sell.  I'm never at a loss for designer paper, because I can make my own.  I colored the Citrus Background with my Copics and added some paper made with the Interlocking Circles stamp. Some matching ribbon and my card was complete.

Doesn't it just make you want to recline under a tree with an ice cold lemonade?  For me that will have to wait. I'm getting ready for a garage sale, so I'm off to price more stuff.  Keep your fingers crossed that my junk, er, treasures sell.  That means more stamps for me! lol.

Have a great day!

What an awesome sentiment =) I love the backgroud paper...your coloring is awesome and that sponging makes me wish I was home to play around with my stamps. Think anyone will notice if I go home sick? I'm sick of our crummy weather and your card makes me wish for some sunshine and umbrella drinks!
