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.

Sweet Summer Birthday

Hi Everyone,
How's this for a cute summer birthday card?! The minute I received the new Watermelon Border stamp, from DRS Designs, I knew I wanted to pair it with that daring little ant on the stamp named Watermelon and Friend :) Nothing says summer more than some cold, juicy watermelon, and the image just screams picnic. So, why not a picnic for a summer birthday party theme?
I created the background using various background stamps which are:
Watermelon Border (Yes, the same one from up the side, just not colored in!)

I layered up the Tiny Happy Birthday using a few circle punches and attached it with a pop dot for some depth. Other than that, this one is nice and post office friendly...lol!

Thanks for dropping in today and don't forget to join us every Thursday for the challenges, ath the DRS Designs blog!
