more sheetloads

Good Sunday Morning to you all!

I decided on Thursday night that I wanted to make cards to give to the station leaders at VBS. They all did a super job so I had to recognized them personally in some way. Anyway, I went to the SheetLoad's of Cards website again (link is in my left column) and found a sketch that I liked then...changed it to work for me. Yes, I know this is quite basic but I wanted to make 8 cards in a very quick amount of time. Anyway, fancy or not...I think these cards are lovely. The yellow and frosted cobalt colors are Prism paper, the patterned paper is from DCWV (Pocket Full of Posies stack) the white is PTI along with the scripture from the Everyday Blessings set. The embellishments you see are Bella Dots. Interesting embellishments, those Bella Dots. I like them in place of brads or eyelets. They are easy to apply (I used glue dots) and if you get the glitter dots they add a little bling. See...easy schmesy and they look nice!

It was a nice warm 96 degrees here yesterday and projected to go up to 104 today. Yikes! You'd think that would mean that I would have been inside stamping all day but in fact...I was not. Kyler and I made a trip to the farmer's market where we found Rainier Cherries! Woohoo...they are delish and I'll be going back next week for more. Oh, I also found a quite yummy Walla Walla sweet onion bunch that I cooked up a little to go with out dinner. I don't love onions so that is a huge deal for me! After the farmer's market Todd was up so the water slide came out, got fixed, and was blown up and used! It was fun to watch the kids playing together and having a good time! I'm sure it will go up again today!

I hope your weekend has been great, too. Have a stupendous stampin' Sunday!
