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!!!

Card made for my good friend, Robin

My good friend, Robin, had a birthday last month and I want to show you the card I made and sent to her.  She and I have never met in person, oddly enough, but that hasn't stopped us from becoming good friends over the past few years.  We enjoy talking on the phone and swapping crafty ideas and we always keep up with hand made cards made for each other during birthdays and anniversaries and sometimes just to say hello.  She really has come to mean a great deal to me and I can't imagine life without her.  I wouldn't want to.  She's smart and funny and very sweet.  We met thru a swap done on You tube.  We just happened to be partners for that swap and it was the first swap I had ever done all tho she was a seasoned veteran. So I'll quit running my mouth and show you the card now. 

Here's what the front of the card looks like. I finally got to use some of that wonderful mesh bling I got.  (which I was happy to share with Robin cause that''s just how we roll lol).  

And here's the inside of the card.

you can see I used the same punch for the sentiment both on the front and the inside and all that gold is from my Krylon gold leaf pen.  Love that pen and it has lasted a long time.  I also used those 5.5x5.5" corrugated card bases that I get at Micheal. Another one of my favorite products right now.  In fact, I'm starting on my second box right now.  Hope they don't discontinue them anytime soon.

Okay, that's my card share for today.  Hope you all enjoyed it.  Also, I hope you are liking the new shorter blog post.  I will keep it up unless I start getting alot of questions about products used.  Remember I will be happy to share that information with you if you will just leave me a comment.  I will see you all back here tomorrow for another card share. Till then I hope you have a wonderful and crafty day.  Much love and hugs, AmyK
