Squeaky Kisses & Birthday Wishes

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps 
Hello and Happy Friday!
It's been a busy week for us and we and looking forward to some R & R!! We are on our way shortly to a friends cabin for the weekend, yippy!  The weather doesn't seem like it will be cooperating for us to snowmobile (since they are calling for rain/snow mix) and temps in the 30's but we are going to try some ice fishing, snowshoeing and the best of all...we will have the traveling sauna with us!!!!
 I can't wait to kick back and hang out with these guys :)
Have a great weekend everyone!

Today, I have a couple birthday cards to share using Jaded Blossoms Mouse Bites stamp set. This is such a cute set and so versatile and it has a lot of sentiments to :)
 The pattern papers used are from Authentique~Loyal Collection. 
I cut the base mat and base layers.  I then continued with a 3 x 3 square using pretty shiny silver paper and then a 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 using Authentique paper. With foam adhesives, I mounted this sweet little mouse on it. I used the Mini Tag Dies in the right corner for the tag.
The mouse is stamped with the Mouse Bites stamp set and color with copics. I also added some rosy cheeks and a little doodling with my white gel pen. I also pieced in a few things (hat and scarf) using the papers from this collection to tie it all together. 
The sentiment is stamped with the same set onto a Mini Tag Dies 2. I finished by adding a little silver string from my stash and tied on a bow. 
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Simon Says Monday Challenge~Chill Out
2.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #172 Anything Goes
3.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #196 Winter
4.) Seize the Birthday Anything Goes-Topping Dashing and/or Doodling

I hope you had a great weekend! 
Today, I have a quick and fun card using a new die I picked up recently. I have been itching to use them but just haven't had a lot of spare time lately :(
I finally had a little time yesterday afternoon to play in my craft room and this is what I came

I started with a card base using Spellbinders 7 x 7 Reflective Moment die. I then layered a 5 x 7 Matting Basic B panel cut from Bo Bunny's Altitude Collection my friend Lisa gave me. I love this paper~so many pretty patterns. 
The snow, snowflake and trees are all from Jaded Blossoms. The adorable snowman is Tutti Designs Jolly Snowman which I picked up a few weeks ago. Isn't it super cute...I love the delicate cut from this die. The celebrate along the bottom is from My Creative Times  Let's Party Word Dies

Happy Birthday~Card & Gift Box

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps
Hi Everyone! 
I was so happy to get a little crafty time in today. The weather is super cold and I didn't have a lot on my agenda today. So, I decided to hide away in my craft happy place! I noticed there were some fun challenges going on and couldn't wait to join in on a few with this project. 
So for today, I have a pretty card and gift box~
The card base and layer is Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles. The pattern papers used on today's project are from MME Honey Cake collection. The flower cluster is created with Spellbinders Foliage, Memory Box Chloe Stem and the Spellbinders Carnation Creations die.
The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed with Jaded Blossom Birthday Treat Tags stamp set. I layered it on white and then the coordinating pattern paper. I finished with some pretty pearls
 from my stash. I finished with a bow using Pure Love crinkle ribbon from DL.ART.
The gift box is from the Silhouette Store #63982 and cut on my cameo. I decorated it to match the card using the same dies and stamps.  Again, adding a bow with Pure Love crinkle ribbon from DL.ART to coordinate with the card.  In the center of the bow is a small little flower button created with the Wee Petites Buttons Galore die and tied on with jute string from my stash. 
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Double D Challenges  Theme~Anniversary/Blogaversary/Birthday

Your hospitality is greatly appreciated

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps 
Hi Everyone and Happy Friday! 
I hope you are having a great day and looking forward to the weekend~They sure come and go fast, ha? I will be going out of town for a few days to spend some time with my family back home. I have had some of you ask about my Dad and he is doing better. Slow...but making progress! It's actually been 1 month tomorrow since his fall. He is still in the Nursing Home but working on therapy so he can get back home soon. Thanks for all the prayers..appreciate them!
I will be back early next week to catch up...have a great weekend!

Today, I am popping in with another little tag and card set using Jaded Blossoms stamps and dies. Similar to the last set~You can see HERE but changed it up a little using a different snowman in the file. Awesome for gift giving~
These adorable snowmen are from SVG Cutting Files~Chibi Snowmen set. I stamped the face using Peachy Keens PK-1882 Ornament Face set.
Doesn't she make you smile inside? So, so cute!
The wine tag is created with the Wine Tag Die. I popped the snowman with adhesives for dimension.The hanging icicles and snowflake are form the Winter Dies. The sentiment is stamped with For the Hostess onto a Mini Tag Dies 2.
The card is similar to the tag. I added a red base layer and a small panel of matching pattern paper from the snowman's hat. I then added a Scallop Hexagon Dies and then popped the snowman on that. The icicles and snowflake are from the Winter Dies.
The sentiment is stamped with For the Hostess onto the Mini Tag Dies 2. The ribbon is Ghoul Green from my friend, Diana at DL.ART.
