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.

Blue Christmas/Winter

Hi Everyone,

We are continuing to celebrate Christmas in July at the DRS Designs blog with our current challenge.  The theme this week is "Blue Christmas/Winter."  Get a jump on your holiday card making and join us.  You might even win a prize!

For certain this will be my golf obsessed Dad's card this Christmas. When this was done, the first words out of my husband's mouth were, "So, did you make that for your dad?"  lol!

The Golf Ball Snowman really is cute, I just wish I had colored the tee blue too.  What was I thinking?  Oh well.

As usual, I used my DRS Designs background stamps to create my papers:

After stamping the polka dots across the top, I stamped the snowflakes off on a piece of paper first, and then back on top of  the dots.  I just wanted them a lighter shade, so that the dots would show through.

The Small Happy Holidays greeting was layered using my circle punches and I glittered up the bottom layer to make it look like a snowball.

 Well, lots of busy stuff  going on.  It's Vacation Bible School this week at my church, and as usual I'm one of the volunteers. I'm also on the hunt for some new lamps.  I promised my niece she could have my current ones for her new apartment, so let's hope I can find something I like in a hurry :)  Also, I'm still trying to nurse my ankle.  It's still not up to snuff, so my fingers are crossed that if I baby it a little more, I'll get back to exercising next week.

Have a good one!
