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!!!

Happy Birthday card for Penelope's 2nd Birthday

This year for Penelope's 2nd birthday I wanted to make a real cute card so I turned to my Create a Critter cartridge for the cricut.  All the cuts on this card came from that cartridge.  I used design paper from DCWV, "the sweet stack", and the card stock is from Bazzill Basics paper co.  I added a little glitter glue from Martha Stewart for a finishing touch.
This is a shot of the envelope.  I don't ever really decorate the envelopes because of them having to go thru the mail and possibly getting destroyed but I had just gotten this washi tape and it matched the paper line so good that I had to add it to the envelope.  I think it's just so cute!  This card was going to be hand delivered at the birthday party so I knew that It wouldn't be damaged by the mail.
    Ok, that's all I've got for you today, thanks for stopping by, be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my card creations.  I love to hear from you all.  See you again tomorrow with another card.  Hugs,
