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 Mother's Day card

I hope all you wonderful Mothers out there had a great day yesterday celebrating your day.  I, myself, am not a mother and it makes me sad if I spend too much time thinking about it.  I haven't been able to have children yet anyway being that I'm disabled and all.  I still keep a glimmer of hope that one day I may become a mother though.  I think that would be the single most important thing I could ever do with my life.  I know it's a lot of work and it's a thankless job but the rewards must be out of this world.   My brother and I and his two children spent the day with our mother yesterday.  We had a great time with the kids doing some finger paint art for their mother and Dylan, who will be turning 7 this week, came and spent a couple hours with me and we made a card for him to give to his mother.  He loves using the cricut machine.
I used Websters pages for the background paper and a stamp from Hot off the Press and colored it with my copic markers.  I used some flowers from wild orchid crafts, and some that I made myself. The sentiment stamp is from studio g's ditto line of unmounted rubber stamps.   Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you all have a wonderful week.
