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.

Hoppy B-Day!

Hi Everyone,

DRS Designs has released a new batch of stamps over the weekend, and boy are they cute! I love all of their greeting stamps because they are fresh, funny and ones that you can't find anywhere else :)

Birthday cards are always the first to disappear from my stash, so they are definitely the ones I make the most. I love a good pun too, so the new Unfrogettable Birthday Greeting fits seamlessly into my existing stash of card making supplies.

I used the Polka Dot background stamp, since it looked kinda like a bumpy frog, and I thought the Singing Frog was a good match with this greeting as well. I made it easy on myself when it came to the frog. I stamped him in dark green ink on light green paper and fussy cut him out. Yup, all I did was color his tongue!

The ribbon had some dots, so that was a natural fit here, and I die cut some letters and added a bit of punny-ness to finish it off :)
Be sure to check the new releases section for all the the great new stamps!
Thanks for stopping by :)

Gorgeous card, Karin! That frog was brilliant (although far too fussy to cut for my lazy butt!) The sentiment is adorable and you've used it perfectly!
