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!!!

Masculine Birthday Card`

I made this masculine Birthday card for Tony, a good family friend to my husband and I.  Tony has been a fan of my cards for a while now and even commissioned me to make his Christmas cards last year for his business associates.  I wanted to do a special card for him.  I have to give some of the credit for this card to my hubby, Brian.  He had the idea for the colors and to go with the monochromatic grey for the back ground.  He helped me design and pick out all the elements for this card.  I used a stamp set from Hot off the press and stamped it with chalk ink from clear snap in charcoal, the embossing folder is from cuttlebug, and I used glimmer mist for the back ground.  I want to thank you all for stopping by and checking out my card today.  I hope you enjoy it, please come back later in the week; I should have some Easter cards up.
