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.

Hi Everyone,
The new challenge at the DRS Designs blog is "PLAIDS", so here is my offering with what else, but plaid :)
Two weeks ago a friend of ours had a double knee replacement, so I made this in anticipation of the surgery.  Does DRS Designs have a stamp for all occasions or what?  My friend is a he and not a she, so I thought this plaid challenge would be a good one to make a masculine card.
I used the Open Plaid for the background, the Woven Plaid for the center strip and the
 Knee Replacement greeting for the sentiment.
A simple button embellishment was all I ended up adding to finish it off.
Don't forget the DRS Designs Stamp-A-Versary contest began this week. Please join us and you might win a huge prize package of stamps!  Just click here for all the details. 
Have a nice weekend :)

Seriously... a knee replacement sentiment? I'm amazed. :P Love how you were able to use two coordinating plaids in this great masculine card.

Hi, Karin! I hope this time blogger lets me leave my comment - it keeps giving me a 503 error LOL - What a great sentiment, and really needed, in our get well cards. Love how you have color coordinated the sentiment with the plaid. I always forget to do plaids, and they make such pretty backgrounds - perfect for our masculine friends, too. Love those dots in your zigzag element! REALLY pretty card, K! hugs, de

Have a great weekend!

Great plaid card. The sponging of ink around the sentiment just ties the whole thing together.
