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.

Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone,

This past weekend I celebrated the birthday of one my dearest friends, so I veered off of making fall cards, and made a cheerful birthday card. 

It seems bees are out in full force at the end of summer, I'm always swatting them away from my plate whenever we dine outside...lol. The Happy Bee from DRS Designs was my inspiration for this, so I stamped and colored her up, adding glitter to the wings.  

I dry embossed the background and added a strip of paper made using the Splatter Background stamp, along with grey and yellow ink.

To fill up the card, I added some die cut flowers and a butterfly, which left me a space for a greeting.  I chose to use the Happy Birthday portion from the Ladybug Birthday Greeting stamp, simply because it fit my punches.

I hope you are enjoying the waning days of summer! 

Thanks so much for visiting :)
