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.

Hi Everyone,
I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is little more than 2 weeks away!  It's always crazy how fast the time goes at the end of the year.  With all the holiday prep, baking, decorating and shopping, time sure does fly.  So before I completely gloss over the fabulous turkey holiday, let me share my card made with the Autumn Wording Square from DRS Designs. 

I used a traditonal fall color combo of orange and brown for my card today. I made the paper on the left side of my card using the Lines O Plenty stamp and randomly stamping it in orange and brown multiple times.  I layered everything on an embossed pumpkin background.

The wording square was stamped an extra time on orange cardstock, so that I could paper piece the the word Autumn on the square.

Thanks for dropping by!
