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 for my Grandfather

 Is it just me are aren't Grandparents the most special people in the world.  This Grandpa that I made this birthday card is my last remaining living grandparent and i just love him to death.  His health is failing tho and i don't even know if he got to see this card I left there for him.  Bless his heart I want to keep him around for as long as possible but that is for my own selfish reasons.  I don't want to prolong his pain and suffering any longer than need be.  I know God will call him home when his time here is done.  We just try and spend as much time as possible with him now while he can still sit up and talk to us.

To make this card I believe i used a paper stack from Recollections and some spellbinders dies.  The stamp on the outside cover is from Hot off the press and the sentiments stamp on the inside is from Hero Arts. I know there's not alot to this card but I try to keep my masculine cards fairly simple.  I hope you enjoyed it and I'll be back soon with another card. Untill next time. keep on keeping it real. hugz, amy k
