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,

All I can say is, hooray for the month of March!  While the weather is never great where I live, at least if it does snow, you know it won't stick around for months on end.  March is always the light at the end of the long tunnel of winter, and there's the fun of St. Patrick's Day smack dab in the middle of it.

To wish you some happiness, I inked up the new Love and Laughter Friends Greeting in green ink, die cut it and added a green mat to match.  I set it aside and chose to mix it up for myself by using some Kraft card stock.  I stamped the Tall Shamrocks in Versamark and heat set them using white embossing powder.  I then took a green water based marker (the alcohol markers dissolve the embossed edge) and colored in those Irish beauties.

Before mounting it on a Kraft base with white center layer, I added 3 strips of double sided taped, coated those in some glitter, and rounded all of the edges.  I attached my greeting and then added  gems for even more sparkle.

Have a great day!
