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.

Born to Ride

Hi Everyone,
I missed out posting this card last Wednesday because I've been sick since before Easter. Blech.  While I've finished up my prescription of antibiotics today, my ears are still blocked and my equilibrium is off. Needless to say, I'm going back to the doctor for a follow up, because this not being able to hear thing, is really cramping my style :)
Anyway, I made this card with my cousin in mind.  It was his birthday yesterday and he's a motorcycle/dirt bike fanatic. I think he's reliving his youth ever since he hit his 50's!  These stamps from the set Motorcycles #284   from Sparkle N Sprinkle (They're on special right now too!) have his name written all over them.  So masculine and perfect that it was sheer joy creating with them.
I stamped the image in Versamark,  embossed it with Black Detail Embossing Powder #EP171 and fussy cut it, adding it on top of my die cuts.
The center border was made from Sticker Paper #99558 and Black Suede Velvet Glitter #2009.  Full card details can be seen in the gallery here.  And if you haven't seen what's new in the store, just click here...Awesome new sets to be had. Trust me ;)
Thanks for stopping by today and stay well!
