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.

When Life Gives You Lemons...

Hi Everyone,

Thursday means that it's time for another challenge over at the DRS Designs blog.  The theme this week is Summer, so my card is made with bright, hot summer time hues. 

I stamped my background with the Citrus Slice and heat embossed it, doing the same for the two slices I used for embellishment.  The sentiment was stamped and colored, but....

I also added glossy accents to the shot glass and some glitter in the shaker for the salt.

So, do you want a Margarita now? :) :) :)

Be sure to link up your summer creation at DRS Designs!  The prize is 3 summer themed stamps :)

Thanks for dropping by!
