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!!!

Pink Hello, with flower, card

Whenever I participate in swaps I generally like to send some kind of Thank You to the hostest. I usually send a card along with my swap for the month. I think its important to remember how hard these people are working to make things come together smoothly for all involved to have a good time. I made this card for Reagan, the hostest for the Tim Holtz swivel clasp charm swap. I really do enjoy the swap and I want her to know that and to also know that I appreciate all the work that she has to put into it.
So, to make this card I went into my paper scraps, I try and use them up as I can so they don't overrun the scrappy spot. lol. I used this patterned paper from an older Basic Grey collection and I'm sorry, I am not sure which one it's from. I used a strip of Bazzill Basics card stock along the bottom under the ruffled eyelet lace, which is from my vintage stash along with all the buttons on this card. I used the Lacy Labels cartridge for the Cricut to make the label on Georgia Pacific white card stock and I made the shadow in brown Bazzill card stock. The sentiment stamp is from the Gracious Greetings stamp set from Close to my Heart and I stamped it with Berrylicious chalk ink from Clearsnap. The large flower is a white silk flower I had and I used the Berrylicious on the petals and I used Glimmer Mist in Wheat field over the whole thing then added a pink prima flower and the brown vintage button in the center. The stick pin is one that I made. Okay, I think that covers it. I hope you enjoy and, as always, thanks for stopping by.
