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.

Sending Happy Thoughts

Hi Everyone,
DRS Designs is the sponsor this week over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ.  So if you want a chance at a $10.00 voucher, link up your card and play along.
Here is the verse for this week:

John 14:1-6 "Do not let your heart be troubled;believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am , there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going."

So the challenge is to make a card that says, "HOME" to you. 
This is a card I made for a blog friend a couple of weeks ago and I thought I would support the challenge with it today.  Since daises are one of the flowers in my yard that the deer didn't eat this year, I always think of my home when I see them anywhere. And being at home always makes me happy, so the sentiment fits too.

Here are the two stamps I used on today's card:
And a better shot of the Stickles I used.  (I know, I use them a lot :))

Thanks for stopping by today :)  Have a good one!
