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.

Extending Sympathy

Hi Everyone,

I'm popping in today with a sympathy card made with a couple of the newest stamps from DRS Designs. I already know that this Dogwood Branch stamp is going to be a go to favorite of mine. It's simply beautiful, no matter what colors you choose to make the flowers :) I colored mine with Copics and added Stickles to the centers for a bit of embellishment.



I created my backgrounds using Interlocking Circles and Woven Plaid. The Interlocking Circles were stamped 3 times using, orange, green and yellow inks. The Extending Sympathy stamp is also from this newest release.

I hope you had a great weekend.  My husband has been battling a nasty cold that seems to be making the rounds with everyone in these parts.  My fingers are crossed that I don't catch it.  Even so, he was a good sport and took me out to dinner at Delmonico's on Saturday night.  The steak was delicious, but the service left much to be desired :(  When the entree arrived, and I wasn't done with my salad, they just took it away!  NEVER has that happened to me in a restaurant before.  Especially one with these kind of prices.  Very weird.  Very rude.

Thanks for dropping by the blog today and be sure to check out the DRS Designs store and all the newly released stamps.

Have a great day!

That really is a beauty! The sparkle is perfect. I adore those papers and that stamp is gorgeous! Sorry to hear about that awful service...what a disappointment. Hopefully not a regular occurance!

This is so pretty! I always seem to go monochromatic and CAS for sympathy cards, but this works really well. Hope this is a just-in-case for your stash, and not because you need it right away.

This is so elegant Karin, just gorgeous coloring and the flowers are a nice touch. Hope your hubby feels better soon but I guess better to be sick now and get it over with than later huh?

Cheryl said...

How gorgeous, Karin! It's a beautiful card, to match a beautiful lady. The colors and papers are quite unusual, yet very touching. Thanks for sharing.

Hopefully your hubby is on the mend. I just hate bad service in a restaurant. I can't believe you took your salad! I eat very slowly and they usually offer to take my salad when they bring the food, but I don't think I have ever had someone just take it. Your card is so pretty, I love that stamp too. Your papers are a perfect match too!

Hope you haven't got that cold from hubby, Karin. Sorry that the experience at that restaurant was not pleasant... that has happened so many times to me, though.
This card is so elegant... those nesties make it look so formal. Love the white flowers.
