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

Good Morning Everyone,
As far as I'm concerned, the big countdown starts today, because Christmas is one week away! How's your holiday prep going? I'm somewhere between Yikes and Yipee :)

I'm showing off a card I made a while back with one of my favorite stamps from the DRS Designs catalog, Golf Ball Snowman. I sent a few of these cards out to the golfers in my family. Love that plaid hat and scarf combo on him :)

The green panel piece was created using the Open Plaid background stamp and the subtle look was made by stamping in Versamark. I added a matching ribbon and layered everything onto an embossed snowy background. The sentiment was taken from the Christmas Multi Greeting, by only inking the one phrase and punching it out. Lots of layers, and except for the ribbon knot, still relatively flat for mailing :) Speaking of ribbon, have you entered this weeks ribbon challenge? There's still time!
Peace & Love :)

Great card Karin, love the frames and how you repeated them, great lay out and such a sweet image!

Wonderful card for a golfler. Love the plaid too and all the layers. Is that a corner punch or a die that you used for the frames? Too cute.

What a fun snowman idea and great for the golfers in your life.

Could your card be any cuter, Karin? I certainly did not expect a "snowman" made of golf balls LOL very cute. I also like the layers upon layers, all with the same corner punch - looks fantastic!
