Thanks

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone! 
I hope your having a great day~
I was able to sneak in some crafty time...finally!! I miss everyone in blog land! Things have been very busy in our neck of the woods. We've been spending a lot of time with our grandchildren as we welcome two new grand babies to the family (this makes 5 now). Oliver Jay 2 months old and
Kimber Ann 2 weeks old. I have also been doing a lot of traveling to go back to visit my Dad who is still in the Stroke Recovery Center recovering from the stroke he had in April. My time has been very limited these past few months with crafting and blogging but I hope to get back to a regular schedule very soon.

I am sharing a couple of "quick" and "simple" cards I created today.  I used some of the distressed Oxides inks which I finally got a chance to try. I used the worn lipstick and cracked pistachio on
these cards.
After creating the water colored background, I used a Sizzix thinlits Mixed Media die to create a stencil and ran embossing paste to add texture. I distressed the edges with the DIA. The pretty doily in the center is the Frantic Stamper Lace Geometric Flower Doily Die and layered on Jaded Blossoms Stitched Circle Die.
Along the bottom I used the pretty Thanks Scallop Border Die die from Simon Says Stamps. I added a little ribbon from my stash and gathered it along the edge of the border.
The cluster of flowers are Recollections and Wild Orchids mixed pastel apple blossoms. Beneath the flowers are Cherry Lynn Designs Dandelions Die and Sue Wilson Designs Mosaic Leaves from Scrapy Land. The gorgeous butterfly is Die Versions Pretty Butterflies Die.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Simon Says Monday Challenge Distress it
2.) DL.ART July Linky Anything Goes
3.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #196 Anything Goes

Today, I have a couple Father's Day cards to share with you that I made for my son and son inlaw for Father's Day last Sunday. You could easily change the sentiment and use these cards for a birthday card to. I always have a hard time with guy cards but I like how this turned out.  So, I'm pretty sure I will be making more in the future. The background is embossed with the Sizzix Birch Trees folder. I also distressed the edges with the DIA and inked with walnut stain.
The Tree's are Taylored Expressions Evergreens die and the Deer are Impression Obsession Deer Trio also inked around the edges. The clouds are Memory Box Stitched Cloud Trio die.
The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed with My Creative Time's Greatest Handyman stamp set. I finished with sequins from my stash.

Just a little note

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone! 
I hope your having a great week so far~
A little update on why I've been missing and posts have been very scattered~ For those who follow me, pretty much know there has been a lot going on in my life since the new year.  I've have had a lot on my plate lately traveling back and forth often as my Dad was recovering from a broken pelvis in Dec to now recovering from a major stroke in April which has left him with some short memory loss and a loss of his vision which has been very difficult and just saddens my heart.

On a happy note, we had a new grandson, Oliver who is now 3 weeks old and another grandchild due to arrive in about 3 weeks. We have been trying to spend time with little Oliver as much as we can not to mention I watch my little granddaughters 2 days a week so this Nanny is pooped by the end of the day, lol!

I am so happy I found some time to sneak away in my craft room...I've been missing it so much!! I am going to "try" to take at least 1 day a week to craft, blog for now. That is about all I can allow right now. So, hopefully you will see my blog a bit more active?! Thanks for all of you who have stuck with me...I appreciate it more than you know!

Today, I have a couple really quick cards to share that I made using a file from the Silhouette Store and cut  on my Cameo. I dipped into an older stack of pattern papers from Stampin Up that I just got to use up...I have so much.
What do you all do with older pattern prints? I hate to get rid of it, it's so pretty!

I added pretty brads from Paper Studio to the centers of the flowers. The sentiment is stamped with My Creative Time's Just Because Stamp set.
This was super easy to cut out and put together if your looking for a quick set of cards! I definitely will be making some more of these.  Maybe, even make a matching card box to hold 6 and give these as a gift set?! 
I am entering this in the following challenge:
1.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #192 Anything Goes
2.) DL.ART June Linky Challenge~Anything Goes
3.) PDE Linky Challenge #176 Cards
4.) Word Art Wednesday Challenge #286-287 Anything Goes
5.) Paper Sweeties June Challenge
