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.

Bee Well

Hi Everyone,

Happy Monday :)  I have a card share for you today that's in support of the sketch at the Card Patterns blog.  DRS Designs is the sponsor and you have a chance at winning a voucher for $20.00 off your next order if you play along.

Here is this weeks sketch:

And my card which uses the following stamps:

I always say sketches are not my strong thing, so when I get one that I feel could be easy, I love them :)  Instead of stitching around the edge like the sketch showed, I used the sentiment stamped multiple times.  I wish I had a bee charm for my card, but I didn't, so I figured any flying thing would have to do. 

I hope you can play along and just to let you know, DRS Designs has just released a whole new group of stamps.  Check them out by clicking here.

Well, I have to cut it short.  I've been preoccupied with lots of projects around the home front, so I will have to save the chit chat and updates for another post. 

Thanks for dropping by...You are the best :)

What a neat card! i fancy bees myself because my Dad was a beekeeper. I like that you repeated the wording on the edge, i always forget about repeating an image.
