Welcome!

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.

Snowman Challenge

Hi Everyone,

This week the challenge at the DRS Designs blog is Snowmen.  For me this was an easy one.  I was thinking of using this card as a general thinking of you kind of card for the cold weather months, that's why I used the blue and white color scheme.

I stamped the background with the Interlocking SnowBackground stamp, and decided to use the left over punched out portion from my snowflake punch for the embellishment down the side. I used a circle punch and added an epoxy sticker to the center. Grin.  I'm so proud of this simple embellishment and how it looks.


For the image, I stamped Stretch the Round Button Snowman twice, fussy cut one and added it with pop dots.


Grab yourself a snowman and join us over at DRS Designs!

Have a great day :)
