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.

A Rare Grill Master

Hi Everyone,

I have another birthday card to show off today on my blog.  Thank you and birthday cards are the ones that I use the most in my personal life, so I always feel like I never have enough.

This one is made entirely of stamps from DRS Designs.  It's the perfect birthday card for that man in your life with a summer birthday.  I would say, what man doesn't like to grill?  But that would be my husband.  It's me who does the grilling, because he says he never knows when it's done. lol.  Maybe if he did it on a regular basis he would learn, but whatever.

I used the Large Original Plaid stamp to make the bottom of my card look like a picnic tablecloth, the Lines O' Plenty for the top and the Polka Dot Background for the middle strip

The image is Grilling Guy and the matching sentiment is Grill Master Birthday Greeting.

It's my day to post over at the DRS Designs blog too, so stop by and see another summery card over there as well.

Thanks for stopping to visit and I hope you are having a great week.

What an awesome card - those sentiments are perfect....and your coloring rocks =) Love the papers you've used, too. I married a grillmaster and I'm so glad he likes to cook since I only really enjoy baking aside from occasional recipes. ;)

Your husband and mine would get along well! Mine calls me to the grill (and stove) a thousand times with the question "is it done"? Love the card, great use of all the background stamps and it really does remind me of tablecloth fabric. Too cute!

I adore your sentiment. I laughed out loud. This is my husbands type of humor.

Way to go.
