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.

Ladybug Birthday

Hi Everyone,
Even though Mother Nature played an April Fools joke by sending me snow yesterday morning, I'm choosing to remain cheerful by posting this summer like birthday card. I know lady bug time can't be too far in the future, so I inked up the Ladybug Birthday Greeting and made it the focus of my card. By cutting it out with my circle dies, I was able to layer it up to match the color theme of my card. DRS Designs has lots of great card edgers, and this Ladybug (which comes paired with a butterfly edge) worked perfectly down the side of my card. I simply stamped and colored it up with my Copic markers and added a punched border.

The Easy Dot Background made making the background paper so simple and matched the theme of the card so well. I finished it off by adding some resin ladybugs that have been in my crafty stash forever :)
Just to add a personal bit, I succommed to the awful flu/cold/virus whatever thing that seems to have many people sick.  Last week was rough, sleep was scarce and with 18 coming for Easter dinner, I wasn't sure I was going to make it.  I managed to survive, and went to the doctor yesterday (for the second time...long story), and I'm hoping with these meds I will be back to feeling better.

Hello sunshine,
Sorry that you have been poorly, Karin. And I hope the worst is behind you.
This card is the CUTEST I have seen in a long time. I am a big fan of ladybugs and I just love them on your card. All so beautifully co-ordinated and the resin ones look so real as though they will jump out any moment.
Take care,
