Lawnscaping Challenge #81

My second post for the day. Off to the skatepark with Max shortly so thought I better get this posted incase I forget or break an arm....

 Unfortunately I don't have many Lawn Fawn stamps so had to use another brand. I'm hoping to get some very soon though......fingers crossed for Mothers Day....
A very simple card but you know me, the simpler the better! I tried to stamp the clouds in lines going across the card. For the sentiment I was inspired by the wonderful Anita from My Papercraft World. I don't use yellow very often, so when I saw Anita's last two stunning cards in shades of yellow, I thought I would give it a go. I think yellow is also a happy colour, so thought it would go well with the sentiment.

Unfortunately I don't know where the cloud stamp came from, was purchased second hand. The sentiment is from Kaisercraft 'Happy' and the enamel dots are from Papervine.

Have decided I'm going to add this card to the Fusion Card Challenge as well. The colour inspiration is yellow, black and white.

One more card to post before I embarrass myself at the skatepark. Thankfully Max is only 7yrs old and likes to see me skate, can't imagine that will still be the same in a few years....

Take care



  1. What a fabulous card, Shona ... the golden yellow sentiment shines amid all those grey clouds! Thanks so much for the shout out, my friend! Anita :)
