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!!!

Masculine birthday card for Chris

This card was made using the Basic Grey paper line "Lime Rickey".  I used the Cricut cartridge; Elegant Edges for the red label piece and the notebook and tab dies are from Papertrey Ink.  I used stamps from Scrappy Cat and Inkadinkado and ink by Ancient Page.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I edged it with distress ink by Ranger, and an adage ticket from Tim Holtz,  I covered the notebook die cut with Pearl glimmer mist.  The leaf punch is by Martha Stewart and the stick pin is made by me.  I hope you enjoyed my card today, thanks for stopping by.
