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.

Army Bear

Hi Everyone,
I hope you had a good Labor Day weekend.  Ours was quiet with not many plans due to all the rain they predicted.  Which never really came, except of course after we built our bonfire...lol!
Anyway, friends of ours had a son enlist this year, so I made this thinking of you card for them.  I know they are so proud of him, but miss him terribly.  The card is long gone, but I noticed Meljen's challenge is Anything Goes this week, so here it is.  Her artwork is just so cute :)
That's it for me.  I'll have my DRS Designs post in a day or so, but until then, the challenge over there is to make a card with a ghost on it.
Other Challenges for this card:
Hooked on Crafts-Cards for Men
Make it Monday-Anything Goes
OooLaLa-Teddy Bear
Stamp and Create-Anything Goes
Pink Elephant-Patterned Paper
Ladybug Crafts-Anything Goes
Natalie & Amy-Anything Goes

What a great card! I like the cute image, but I LOVE the stars and stripes paper. The name of your blog made me smile... my husband's name is Stefan - a lifetime of "spell that" and our surname has an accent on the last e... so we all just say "..with an accent on the e" in fact I used that fact at the speech I gave at my son's wedding when I said we wished them all the best as "Mrs and Mrs with an accent on the e" Thanks for sharing your fabulous card in the Here Come The Boys Teddy Bears challenge, good luck and hope to see you next time too, Donna ☺
