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!!!

Birthday card for Father in-law

Here's the card that I made for my Father in-law, Frank Owens from my husband and myself.  If you noticed, in my last blog post I also had a Birthday card published for Frank but that one was to be from the church.  Some of you may or may not know that the preacher at the church has asked me to make all the cards for the church.  That means that certain people, like my husbands Mom and step dad, who attend the church with us, will be getting two cards made by me from now on.  One from the church and one from us.  I don't mind at all in fact I'm enjoying the way making all these cards has forced me to flex my creative muscles.  I know that I could make all the birthday cards from the church the same and they would be happy with that but for right now, I'm having pretty good luck coming up with ideas for cards and I would like to continue making them all unique and different.  I enjoy that I know who my cards are going to and so I can make them according to how I perceive their personalities.  I like coming up with new ideas for cards and I will continue doing so for as long as the ideas will flow!. 

Here's a pic of the inside of the card:
 I don't know why I decided to cover both sides of the card. lol. I guess I just got used to doing that with the churches cards and just got carried away. lol. That's funny.  I hadn't even noticed that I'd done that till just now.  I used that same stamp of the glasses from the front of the card here on the inside and I stamped both it and the sentiment in navy ink from Hero arts.  I really like those childhood quotes and I have a few of them in my collection.  I get them out and use them every chance I get.  It's a nice change from having to search for a sentiment to go on the inside of the card and type it up and print it out from my computer.  I think they are fun and cute for anyone of any age. 

Well, that's all for today.  I hope to be back tomorrow with a few more cards.  I've got some more that I've done for the church that need to be posted so I will try and get that up for you tomorrow.  Till then, I hope you all are having a wonderful day. Much love and hugs, Amy k
