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!!!

Got an Anniversary card for you today, for a young and in love couple who I love

I love this card and I LOVE this cute little couple I made it for. I won't keep you waiting any longer, its for Jeff and Nicole Cochran, she's my first cousin so you can BELIEVE me when I say we grew up together. It's good. I love their love and I'm so happy to help celebrate it with them if only via the post. lol. 

So, I got my game tight today and went and found out all the names of the papers so that I could share with you.  You ready? Here we go... The animal print on the back is from the Heidi Swap paper pad called Sugar Chic (and in case I forgot to mention and I did lol) all most all of the elements from this card are from Heidi Swap.  I used a  page of the Color Magic pack and sprayed it with her mustard color shine. To get the stripes back you just wipe the paper down with a paper towel after you get done spraying. The pink piece is also from that Color Magic line, they are called notes.  I also used some color shine on it and then the piece that says happy anniversary is a punch from ek success and I stamped it with (I think) a GCD studio stamp and some Hero Arts neon blue ink. to finish it all off I added some Prima flowers and some of those button bling centers with the backs removed, of course. I hope you enjoyed today's card. and you know I will be back tomorrow with another card for you.

Also. I have some news to share and to me its huge! I'm so excited i'm doing the pee pee dance lol.  The Pastor, Mr. Art, gave me a call a few weeks ago and he has asked me to make all the cards for the churches correspondence such as get well cards and sympathy cards, and maybe some post cards that say thank you for visiting our church.  I've made a few demos for them and they loved them, don't worry, I will be sharing them here with you just as soon as I get caught up some.  We are still working out the details on what they want each card to look like. So this is a work in progress but I'm so excited that I'm about to burst at the seams. lol. I can't believe someone took notice of my work and wanted more. That Rocks!
