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.

Smell my Feet

Hi Everyone,
I'm alive, I'm alive!  I really thought this would be a quiet week, but things never work out as planned right? Oh well, with the rain on it's way, maybe that will give me some more time in my little craft area :)
DRS Designs released their new Halloween stamps last weekend and they are a great batch!  Some creepy, some funny....Something for everyone.
Today's card is made with the new Smell my Feet Greeting and what's better to eat at this time of year than a big old Candy Apple?  That glossy accent really makes it look so good, I can't help but think how long it's been since I've had one. I may have to remedy that this year.
The background was made by stamping the Accent Bats in black and the Easy Dot background in red.
If you haven't seen the newest stamps from DRS Designs, just click here.  And our latest challenge theme on the blog is "Fall Leaves."  Hope you get a chance to link up your creation for a chance at winning a prize!
Have a good one....

Your blog posts nearly always make me chuckle, Karin. I sorta expected this to be a hambo design LOL the candy apple sure looks real - the gray shading around it not only help with dimension, but pick up the bats in the background!. Really sweet card!
