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.

Have a Purrrrfect Halloween!

Hi Everyone,

I have a Halloween card to share with you today.  It's made with three new stamps from DRS Designs.  After making my sky background with the Starry Background stamp,  I used the Purrrfect Halloween greeting for the my focal point.  It matched so well with the new Silhouette Cat and Moon stamp, that I added that along side.  It was stamped, colored and embellished with Stickles.  I used the Small Bat Moon stamp to make the strip along the side in some matching yellow paper.

A couple of die cut bats finished it off.  The blue and yellow color combo was a little different for a Halloween card, but I love the way it turned out!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

A non-traditional thing of beauty, I really like the color combo you've used and the dang sparkle you're always rocking. Fabulous sponging, my friend. That edge rocks!
