Wishing you a Sheetload of Cards!

I made this set of four note cards with Dawn McVey's colour challenge in mind because the papers from K & Company were calling me again and they were the beautiful colours, Raspberry Fizz, Spring Moss, and Ripe Avocado!! YAY me!!

Not a lot of frou-frou on this set, and there are four cards, Smiley from but it was my first time using the templates from May's Sheetload of Cards so I kind of threw them together!

And the verdict! I love it! You should check Sheetload of Cards out if you need to mass produce or even for some great sketches!

I didn't sign up for the challenge this month on Sheetload of Cards, because I didn't make the attached scraplings but only because something got in the way of my paper cutter and then the wheel fell off and I lost the nut and then I had to walk through the field and saw a John Deere Baler and then the beans finally got planted and that would be the whole reason why.

Anyway, I used Papertrey Ink's Scattered Showers, by Dawn McVey, which I have to say that umbrella stamped a beautiful image the first time! I used Raspberry Fizz and Ripe Avocado ink along with black memento for the sentiments, which are included in the stamp set.

I added a ribbon bit and a button and some bling to top it off and bling on the umbrella too! I actually made envelopes too but that is another bean planting story! Smiley from


  1. Bonnie,
    I am so sad that you weren't able to make a scrapling so you could enter the challenge.
    Your cards are adorable!!
    Next month it is just a single-card-sketch, so I hope to see you participate. ;)

  7. Well, these are just lovely! Sorry about not being able to make the challenge, but at least you got your beans planted? Need a praying mantis or two...or two hundred? Still finding the damn things!
