Card of the Week: The One Pad Challenge Week Eight

Making cards this week was hard.

After battling a horrible cold and cough, I spent an enormous amount of time in the garden.  When the weather is gorgeous and the time for planting and establishing the plants is here, I need to be out there getting things going so that there are lovely blooms surrounding me all summer long.  You have to make hay when the sun is shining, if you know what I mean.  That being said, long hours heckling in the sun made me very tired which is not always that conducive to creating...

But I did manage to keep up with my challenge and make a few more cards:

I always like to have a few anniversary cards on hand in the summer months, as there are so many anniversaries during this season.
Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Basic Grey; Cardstock: Bazzill; Chipboard Butterfly: Maya Road; Rhinestones: Kaisercraft; Mist: Maya Road; Rub-On: Black River Designs; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives

Of course, I can never have enough birthday cards in my stash.  I am very pleased with how this card turned out.
Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Basic Grey; Cardstock: Bazzill; Cardboard Flower: Jillibean Soup; Orange Flower: Bazzill; Ribbon, Button: my craft stash; Brad: Making Memories; Sentiment Font: Monotype Corsiva; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives

Finally, I put together this congratulations card.  I love the button details.  I am really liking buttons on my cards lately.  They add just the right amount of dimension and fun.
Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Basic Grey; Cardstock: Bazzill; Rub-On: Black River Designs; Buttons: my craft stash; Border Punch: Fiskars; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives

So to answer the question:


How many cards can a card maker make from one pad of patterned paper?

This weeks creations brings the total to 21 cards and 5 tags.

I love this challenge and all that it has created.

Has anyone else embarked on a similar challenge?  I would love to hear how it turned out for you and how many cards and/or tags you were able to create?
