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.

Flying Friends

Hi Everyone,

This weeks challenge at the DRS Designs blog is "Flying Friends", so anything with some wings will do. Check out your stash and play along for a chance at some stamps from DRS!

I used the Birthday Sheet Music stamp and the Silhouette Butterfly on today's card to make my background. The Three Butterflies stamp was used on the center strip and also for embellishment.

The big butterfly was punched and I added some dots and Stickles to it, and layered it on the Swag and Dot Circle stamp and added the Happy Birthday Arc. 

You can see all of the design team inspiration and link up your card right here!

Well, since my patio door is finally fixed, I'm off to get some flowers planted in the backyard before the summer is totally over.  I'm also hoping my few flowers will attract some of these flying friends too :)

Have a great day!
