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 young boy, from the church

This card was made for one of our youngest members at Fisher's Chapel.   Mister Nate Scott.  I'm not exactly sure of his age but I don't believe he's started any kind of schooling just yet.  He's a very active and lively young man.  What we, here in the south, would call a "live wire".  lol.  That describes him to a T.  He has several bigger brothers and sisters to play with and they all look out for him..  I wanted to make a cute little boy card for him and nothing to complicated for such a young man.  So I used my Cricut to die cut the background layer out of the striped paper and then the lion figure and the flag on a pole.  Of course the lion's wearing a happy birthday hat and waving the happy birthday flag.  On top of the flag I placed a large gold pear shaped jewel.  I scattered some of my homemade enamel dots in vibrant colors all over the card front and added red stickles around the flag piece and glossy accents down the flag pole to make it seem like it was shiny metal.
That's all for this card, any questions just leave them in the comments and I will answer asap.  Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you all have a blessed and wonderful Sunday.  Get lots of good rest in to start the week again on Monday. I'll try and be back Monday with another card and until then, Much love and hugs, amy k.
