Sheetload of Cards!

This month's Sheetload of Cards is a great, universal layout. Go check it out HERE. I took some liberty and changed up the sketch for each card just a bit. But it was a successful day of producing 8 cards that I can use for any occasion!
I hope the photos are OK. It is dark and gloomy here and not the best day for photography.
As I was looking through my stash of embellishments last week, I came across this sheet of cardstock stickers by Fiskars. The pattern is Heidi Grace Wild Daisy Lane. Now, I thought, that pattern looks familiar. Why? Because I had the papers in my paper stash, that's why! So that's the paper I used also, Wild Daisy Road by Heidi Grace. Seriously, they have both been in my stash for about a year and I just made the connection. You may even recognize it from the double-pocket card I made a while ago. Sometimes I'm a little slow...

For this batch, I used a combination of Studio G dollar stamps, SU! All Year Cheer, Love Without End, and Best Blossoms. Embellies include the stickers, round and square snaps, Primas and brads, along with thin twine. I think I'm going to make another Sheetload and make a batch of Father's Day cards, and another for kids' birthday cards. It feels so good to crank out a whole collection of cards in one day, rather than the usual 2-3 I get to in a week.

Ok, time to cook dinner before DH and DS get home. I'll hopefully get some more time in my stamp room tonight, but I have a headache starting, so might veg on the couch instead. Thanks for looking!
