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.

It's Five O'clock Somewhere

Hi Everyone,
 
Although I feel like we are on the down side of summer, I'm not willing to let it go quite yet. So, keep the warm vibes rolling here's my summer time card post for today, using stamps from DRS Designs :)
 
After stamping the Palm Trees, and Hula Pig ( Is she the cutest, or what?!) I colored in the background using Copic markers, trying my best to delineate between the sea and the sky. I wish I would have used a white gel pen to create some white caps in sea behind her, but I did add some glittery flock to the beach, just to enhance the sand a bit.
 
 
 
 
After I did a bit of coloring and fussy cutting, the margarita from the Drink Line Up stamp fit perfectly in her hand. I figured she'd be thirsty after all that dancing :) I finished it off with the Five O'clock Somewhere greeting and layered everything onto a wave embossed background.
 
Thanks for peeking in today!
