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.

Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone,

The current challenge over on the DRS Designs blog is Birthdays, so I thought I would show you the card that I made for it, on my blog today. 

I have to say I really like this card, so much so, that I already gave it away.  I hope the recipient likes it too.

I used the Easy Dot Background and the Happy Birthday Sheet Music to make my background papers.  The big Brush Happy Birthday greeting was large enough as a focal image, that all I did was add a little handmade flower to the corner.

Yep, I'm  STILL using up those epoxy stickers (I swear they are muliplying when I'm not looking!) but they fit right in the holes on the border die that I used here. 

I hope you get a chance to play along in the birthday challenge this week.  The prize is 3 birthday themed stamps from DRS Designs!

Have a good one :)
