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 my Grandfather

I put together this card for my Grandfather's birthday. I used the Graphic 45, "a proper gentlemen", paper for the card and I die cut the note tag shape from the cricut using the Graphically speaking cartridge and the sentiment stamp is from Close to my Heart. I also heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I hope he enjoyed his card. I had to mail it to him and didn't get to see him on his birthday this year.  I was sad about that. I just wasn't feeling well that day and sometimes I just have to take a break from all the 'going' and 'doing' and just let my body rest and heal. If I don't do that from time to time it just tends to shut down on me. Not to worry, Im all better now.  I love you, Granddaddy, and hope you had a wonderful birthday:)
