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!!!

A Birthday card for an extra special someone

I made this card for Nanny's birthday this year.  She's technically my husband's Nanny but she's also been mine for many years now.  She's such a sweet and special lady.  Always kind and loves her family, and she's got a BIG family, let me tell ya.  I just love her to death and she always has been so good to me.  She and I used to stay up late into the night playing Yatzee (spelling?).  I am not certain but I'm thinking this was something like her 86th birthday?  I appologize for not having my facts straight before making this post.  We'll go with 86 tho because I know that's close. She's still very indipendant and lives alone altho her family and friends all live close by. I just can't say enough good things about this lady who has ment so much to me in my life.  Ok.  On with the card...
    I made this card using some K & co papers and flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts, the sentiment stamp if from Close to my Heart and I die cut it using a Spellbinders label die and my Cuttlebug.  I distressed the edges of the paper a bit using Vintage Photo distress inks by Tim Holtz and just added some lace to finish it off. 
    Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my card.  I hope you enjoyed it. :)
