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.

Who Let the Dogs Out?

Hi Everyone,

The current challenge over at the DRS Designs blog is "Sports", so in honor of the football draft this Thursday and my home town team the Browns, I made this card.

Orange and brown are the team colors and the one end zone at Browns stadium is the Dawg Pound. The crazy fans with the face paint, dog bone earrings and dog masks sit there :)  I really do love how passionate Cleveland is about their football team.  No matter how bad the team sucks, you would never know it from how loud the fans are, or how many come out to tailgate before the game.

These are the stamps I used to make this:

I fussy cut the dog, because he's originally a sympathy card image and I didn't use the halo or the cloud he was sitting on. He's such a cutie that I wanted to think of another way to use him and he worked perfectly here. He's a much friendlier version than the dog on the official Dawg Pound logo. See?
  I hope you can join us for the SPORTS challenge at DRS Designs!
