Welcome to Cards by Amy K.

I am SO GLAD you stopped by to check out my blog!!! Here I will be posting my current projects for you to see. PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment. I would LOVE to hear what you think about what I'm working on. I have been a scrapbooker/paper crafter since I first caught wind of this wonderful hobby in 2006. I am lucky enough to get to spend my days doing something I love so much and which brings so much joy into my life. I first started scrapbooking as a way to pass the time as I found myself at home alone all day suddenly, now I can't imagine life without it. Too bad I don't get paid for it, then I really would have it all!!!

Birthday card for Brother

There sure are a lot of birthdays this month! lol. This card was made for my Brother, Derek, and yes, it's late going in the mail too. His birthday is today and he's turning 31! Wow the older he gets the older I feel. I'm going to be turning 35 in four days! girr. Brother says he's not getting older. lol. I need to find out how he's pulling that off because I sure am! The card is in the mail, Brother, I hope you had a great birthday! I love you!

Happy Birthday, Nicole!

I know Nicole hasn't received this card yet, (it's still on my kitchen table), oops! I have to take it to the post office to be weighed before I can send it. She lives so close maybe I will just take it by there myself. It's closer than a trip to the P. O, anyway, If you are seeing your card here first, Nicole, It's on its way and I hope you enjoy it. It's a little bigger than my usual cards and I hand made the lace flower in the back. It's made from Basic Grey's Sultry paper line and rub ons too. I used bazzill card stock and a few specialty papers on the flower. Stamps are by Inkadinkado and the ink by clear snap chalk inks. I do hope you like it and altho your birthday was Wed. I hope you had great one. Love you, girl!

Tony's birthday card

This is the card I made for Tony's (Brown) birthday. He enjoys my cards probably more than anyone. He loves all the different layers and textures. He spends time looking at each one and tries to figure out just how they are made. I wanted to give him one that I thought he would especially enjoy so maybe this card will fit the bill. I hope you enjoy your card, Tony. Happy Birthday!
