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.

Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone,
Another week is in full swing, and I'm so sorry to see the summer winding down.  Lucky for me the weather this week is fantastic, so we are enjoying dining outside, having bonfires and soaking up some vitamin D via the sunshine!
I'm sharing another Christmas card with you today.  Since I know a lot of golfers, I decided to use the Golf Ball Snowman stamp from DRS Designs to make some more cards.  He's just so cute and since he's supposed to be white, super quick to color :)
The Easy Dot background and the new Christmas Multi Greeting were used to create my backing papers.  I simply went traditional in red and green ink, and also used the small Merry Christmas from that same background stamp to make the little flag greeting.  I love that candy cane striped paper clip.  I hope you do too, because there were a number of them in the package, so you may be seeing me use them again before the holidays are over!

The patterned strip above the punched border is a piece of holiday washi tape. I was trying to keep the card on the masculine side, and wanted to avoid using ribbon or a bow.
So, to wrap thing up...Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you want to try and win some DRS Designs stamps, check out our "Balloons" challenge here. And, be sure to read up on the OWH card drive by clicking here!
Enjoy the week!

Hi Karin,
So glad that you are having a fantastic summer... you deserve none other.
This golfing snowman is so cute... and the dotted paper looks great. Ideal for a golfer... gosh! How creative is card making becoming.

Thanks for the compliments on my new header... thought it was time to change it. Have almost forgotten ABC of blogging, lol.
