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.

Two Challenges

Hi Everyone,
Did you see the title to my post today? Yes, this week you have two chances to win yourself some DRS Designs stampy goodness. This first card is to remind you of the challenge at the blog...We have a challenge every Thursday, and you still have time to get in on our theme this week...Witches!
Now this card doesn't have the witch herself, but it does have her "Witchly" Accessories :) I made the background with the Spooky Eyes and Eeeek background stamped in purple and black. I dyed my own seam binding ribbon to match the card base and the In the Accessories greeting is one of my all time favorites from the current catalog. I finished it off with some rhinestone bats. You know me, I gotta have my bling!
This next card was made in support of the current challenge at the Cupcake Inspirations challenge blog. DRS Designs is the sponsor this week, so I encourage you to join in for a chance at at great prize.
Here is the inspiration photo:
And this is my take using Interlocking Stars, Starry Background and Love You to the Moon Greeting:
It was my hubby's birthday yesterday, so this was the card I gave him. I tried to keep it as clean and simple as possible and when he opened it he said, "I like it... It doesn't have a lot of 'stuff' on it." High praise...lol!
For those of you in the Cleveland Ohio area, DRS Designs will be coming to a stamp show in Strongsville. It's this Friday and Saturday at the Erhnfelt Event Center and I will be at the booth along with Sue, Jennifer and Shelia. I can't begin to tell you how excited we are to be there, so please stop by and say hello. We would love to meet you!
Hope you're having a great week!

Oh I wish I had seen your post sooner! I decided not to go to the Strongville show but if I had known you would be there I would have tried to make it, darn it! Love the card, especially the first one with the blingy bats, so cute! Glad your hubby liked his card and hope he had a great birthday.
