Welcome!

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.

Santa Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I'm sharing the card I made for the current challenge at the DRS Designs blog.  We are still celebrating Christmas in July, and the theme this week is "Santa". 

I used the Open Plaid for the candy cane strip on the side and the Christmas Music for my background.  I die cut the Jingle Bell Greeting and fussy cut my Santa Face. Of course it wouldn't be complete unless I added Stickles to the hat :) 

 
The Single Jingle Bell was stamped on grey paper and embossed with silver embossing powder, and I used a silver gel pen to add doodle dots to the border along the side. I'll share a little secret.  That bell was an unused item from my holiday card making last year.  Score!  I knew it would come in handy sooner or later. 

So, if your looking to beat the heat in a no calorie way, join us for the Santa challenge at DRS and cool off by making a holiday card!
 
Have a good one :)
