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.

Let it Snow

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a good weekend.  We got to spend some time with my best friend from high school and her husband.  It was a beautiful evening spent picnicking under the stars, listening to the Cleveland Orchestra.  It's one of my favorite summer traditions.  Rod and I also went out for breakfast on Sunday and while I spent some time outside reading (Rules of Civility
by Amor Towels), I watched this butterfly flit around my flowers for a good 20 minutes.  I need to remember this weekend when I'm knee deep in snow come January...lol.

Now that you are caught up, I have to let you know that new stamps for the Christmas holidays were released over at DRS Designs, and the design team finally gets to show them off :)

This Large Snowman Portrait stamp isn't new, but I've never had the chance to use it....Isn't he the cutest?!  I have no idea what took me so long!  I layered him on the Circle Spiro and used the 4 in 1 Snowflakes for the background.

I dry embossed the bottom of the background, added a stip of washi tape, and the Let It Snow sentiment from the new releases as my sentiment for the card.

To see more cards made with the newly released stamps, check out our current Christmas card challenge at the DRS Designs blog :)

Have a good day!
