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.

Goodbye Summer

Hi Everyone,

Even though my post is titled Goodbye Summer, it sure is hanging around my neck of the woods.  It's been in the 90's for the past few days, and they even cancelled school yesterday, due to extreme heat and humidity.  I don't mind a few extra hot days before the long days of winter, but I read that it's not good for fall leaf colors, and that is the real bummer for me.  

I tried to bring in the spirit of fall on my card with the new greeting that I inked up on my multicolored ink pad.  It matched my card base and background that I created using the Silhouette Branch Background stamp.

I attached the sentiment with some dimensional foam taped and embellished it with a couple of die cut leaves and the stamped and colored up the October Pumpkin with Fall Leaves.

After making this card I realized that I didn't have a birthday card for my niece.  Oooops! However, DRS Designs came to the rescue with this Ohio Buckeye stamp.  I colored it up, adding some glitter to the little nut and die cut it.  I made a strip of patterned paper using the Splatter background stamp, which hasn't seen it rightful spot in my stamp folder in months.  It is now perpetually on my stamping table, because I use it constantly! All time favorite, for real! :)  And this was all made in the scarlet and grey, to celebrate her love of OSU.

A little simple, but I think the personalized aspect will be a hit :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card and perfect for wishing that Fall would finally make its arrival. Last October I visited a priest friend I had not seen for many years. It was a most perfect Fall day - a blustery, Winnie-the-Pooh kind of day and I would love it extended and summer to go away. I love those beautiful crisp days of Fall and what they usher in - Winter and snow (usually although we have had unseasonably warm winters of late). I miss the times when it would snow in October and we could expect 3' of snow in the winter. Anyway, your card is wonderful and just makes me more anxious for the end of the week when the cold front from the midwest blows the heat and tropical storm Maria out to sea. I am ready for another blustery day!
