Welcome!

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.

Beer is Proof...

Hi Everyone,
 
Since it's almost March, I'm bringing you another St. Patrick's Day card today.  I went a little crazy, using a bunch of shamrock stamps from DRS Designs.  Maybe if there's a challenge out there in blog land to use the most shamrocks on a card, this one might actually win :)
 
I stamped the background with the Swirly Shamrocks in a dark green ink and then went back over the same panel using a lighter green and the Silhouette Clover stamp. The Shamrock Circle was stamped on green paper ( no coloring needed if you do that ;) ) and fussy cut and attached with large glue dots to a doily die cut. My Small Beer Mug was fussy cut as well, and some Stickles were added to the foam :)
 
 
I LOVE this sentiment...lol! After stamping it, I used the Shamrock Background stamp in a lighter green color, and stamped on top of it.  It just looked a little bare otherwise.  Such a cute greeting for this holiday card and you can find the stamp of Franklin's Wisest Words here.
 
Well friends, this card is featured over at the DRS Designs blog today, along with the next clue to the 20th Stamp-A-Versary contest!  Head on over by clicking here :)
 
Have a good day!
