I just love Easter, It's such a nice time of year. Time to spend with family, friends and loved ones. Time for renewed faith. I really enjoyed making these Easter cards too. This one is for my Mom. It's a reflection of the inner beauty she possesses. The paper is from K & Co. My dear friend, Robin sent me this paper in a RAK not too long ago and I thought it was just beautiful. Forgive me, I do not know the name of the collection. I used my Tim Holtz rosette die to cut out the big flower. The smaller flowers are some I get from the bridal section of my craft store. I also used a couple of Prima's and a button for the center. The leaves are from Recollections; the stamp for the sentiment is from Close to my Heart. And the pink button is vintage. I hope you enjoy this card and that you all have a wonderful and blessed Easter.
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!!!

Wow, I can't believe it's already Easter time. Is it just me or is this year just flying by? I love Easter time. The weather is just right, not too hot not too cold, the sun shining and the wind blowing. Just right for getting together with family and friends for that Easter dinner and Sunrise services. Not to mention new Easter cloths, lol.
I will be sending this card to my in-laws, Brian's mother and step father to be exact. I sure hope they enjoy it.
I made this card using the Honey Pie designer papers from cosmo cricket. The eggs were die cuts from the line and I just adhered them to chipboard and used my Tim Holtz/Tonic scissors to trim them out. I added little drops of pearl paint for the wraper on the first egg. The sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkado and I stamped it with versa mark in and used some zing embossing powder in chestnut. So that's it for this card. I hope you all have a very wonderful Easter this weekend and that you get to spend it with someone you love. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget I love to hear from you so leave me a comment before you go.;>

Check out the new flowers my dear hubby, Brian, brought home for me yesterday. Aren't they beautiful? I just love them. Those of you who know me well will know that I love flowers and plants of all types and that I have a much too large collection of potted plants in my house already. lol. This is called an Oriental Lilly and the flowers on it are just huge. I bet they are 6 or 7 inches aross, but I didn't measure them. Oh well, you will just have to believe me; they are really big. And best of all, they are pink! I love them, a big thank you and lots of love to my darling hubby, who I love to pieces. lol
