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.

Wedding Card

Hi Everyone,
DRS Designs is getting ready to release a great new group of stamps this month, and I cannot begin to tell you how much I've LOVED working with them. These recent cards I've made using these newbies have been some of my favorites. I feel like they've boosted my crafting mojo and gotten me out of a long slump :) Hooray for stamps with spring and summer themes!
DRS Designs is also the sponsor this week at The Shabby Tea Room. The theme is Pretty in Pink and the inspriation photo is here:

My card features the lovely Silhouette Bride & Groom (026G) and the perfectly paired To Have and To Hold (1071G) greeting. Both were stamped in brown dye ink, die cut and some light pink chalk shading was added to match the card base.

I dry embossed the background and added some lace, pearls and a flower to keep with the elegant wedding theme.
Sigh. This card makes me want to GO to a wedding. After my husband saw this card, he said, "Wow, that's nice. Hey, when's the last time we went to a wedding?" (And I consider 'That's nice' high praise, by the way...lol.) That's when I realized it's been 9 years. So, let me take this moment to say, "Someone invite to their wedding! I love to dance AND I give a good gift..." Hint, hint ;)
I'll also take this moment to say, that since the lace was a scrap, this card qualifies for our current challenge here on the blog. Check it out and join us!
Happy April Fool's Day! I have no joke, so I will just make this a public service announcement to remind you to watch your back...lol!

This is so pretty, Karin. Very delicate and elegant, love the soft colors and the lace and pearls finish it off beautifully.
