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,
Today's card uses a wonderful Swedish proverb that emphasises what a true friend means to our lives. Who can live with out those people who support you no matter what, and bring real happiness when sharing life's special moments, right? I have a handful of people who mean the world to me, and I can't wait to send them one of my cards with this quote.
This card was made with a yellow base and grey layer to frame my stamped panel. I stamped the Silhouette Background
Trees in yellow dye ink once, and then again before re-inking the stamp, achieving that light shadow. Then I used my stamp-a-ma-jig for the Friendship Double Divide greeting, which was inked in grey.
I added an embossed panel of dogwood flowers to the bottom, and I embellished the centers of the flowers with a dot of glitter glue. I finished it with a grey punched border and a row of half pearls.
Our current challenge at the DRS Designs blog is "So Sorry", and you can join us with your sympathy card right here!
Have a great day :)
