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.

Daisy Basket

Hi Everyone,
The current challenge over at the DRS Designs blog is running for two weeks, so you still have time to enter your "basket" cards!
I stamped the Daisy Basket and colored it with Copics and took the color inspiration for the rest of the card from it.  Here are the other stamps I used to make my background papers:

The sentiment is Vertical Birthday Wishes, but I stamped each word separately and added it to my card in two pieces.
I hope that you get a chance to play along in our challenge this week.  Stop by the blog to see what wonderful creative cards the DT made :)

Just so you know, I know my blog visiting has been sparse for this month.  Truth be told, I'm overwhelmed by paper crafting projects at the moment.  I've been working on Easter favors and gifts, and favors for an 80th birthday party.  Along with the birthday party favors, I'm also making photo poster boards and I received a call to make shower invitations and favors now too.  Yikes!  This is all in addition to my design team commitments and my personal card making as well. (And it's my Dad's birthday this weekend and I'm hosting Easter dinner next week.)  There just isn't enough time in the day, but I will be back to check out your lovely projects as soon as I possibly can.

 Thanks for sticking by me and have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Karin, wow your hands sure are full to say the least. Wish your Dad a happy birthday. What a lovely daughter you are.
And this card is so balanced and soothing to the eyes. The daisies are smiling away and the dotty paper matches perfectly.

Love the bright pops of yellow on the card and I know what you mean about being overwhelmed. Have had to step back a bit myself and make some decisions lately for my own peace of mind.
