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!!!

another birthday card;)

I made this card last night for my uncle, Harvey.  He always enjoys getting my handmade cards.  I've heard that he has not thrown one of them away.  How bout that!!  I put a little extra effort into this one.  I wanted to try something new and sense I'm currently into stamping and inks this is what my hands made;p  I never know where a project is going when I sit down to make it.  Does anyone, tho?  I guess there are some people who set out to make a project with a clear picture of what it is they would like the end result to be.  I've never been like that.  I set out knowing that I might need a Birthday card but no idea what I am going to do . That's why I say 'this is what my hands made'.  my brain has little to do with my crafting.... Maybe that's why I enjoy it so....
I made this card using a Tim Holtz stamp set and several colors of distress inks.  I embossed the image and sentiment with black embossing powder and I used a stamp set from Autumn Leaves on the card base.  That's about it.  Hope you enjoy
