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!!!

Anniversary card for Mom and Dad

My Mom and Dad have been married for 37 years now.  Wow. What a long time to be the same person everyday, right?  Nah, I'm joking around.  I think its a wonderful thing to be married to a person for so many years.  Over the years I've watched my parents as they have shared in happiness and in heartaches.  I've learned thru them what it truly means to be married.  It's not all swans and hearts every day and It's definitely more than I can say in this blog post.  There's a lot to being married and the main thing I've learned in the 3 marriages that I've had. (It just took  me three tries to find mister right;) is that you will stay married for just as long as you want to.  That means as long as you are willing to try your best every day to be good to your partner and to make them happy, to put in the effort to make sure you know how to communicate with them and to understand what it takes for them to be happy and to be willing to go the extra mile to do any thing that it takes to make your marriage work, that's how long you be married. Its when you give up on trying because it got to hard or because you just didn't feel it was worth the effort anymore that you will decide to part way.  For what ever reasons people have for divorce.  I know that I've learned a lot from my parent's marriage.  From watching them never give up on one another no  matter how hard it got.  They have developed a bond that holds fast no mater what heartaches they may endure.  Like all things in life; the reward is sweeter the harder you have to work for it.  Marriage is no different.  So I congratulate Mom and Dad for all the hard work and happiness they have shared and all the memories they have made together.  Thank you, Mom and Dad for teaching me the true meaning of commitment and what happiness a good marriage can bring.  I wish you guys many more happy anniversaries a life time of happiness.

I made this card using Bazzill basics glimmer paper and g.c.d.'s felted paper. The background script paper is from Paper house Productions.  Hand made flower out of Bazzill paper, made by me.  Heart button-source unknown, the charm is made of a fishing swivel and key from Hot off the press, stamps; heart/tree from Hampton art and sentiment from Print works, ink; dark brown chalk ink by clear snap, black trim and the black bling buttons are vintage.   Thanks for stopping by. enjoy!
