Welcome to Sherrie Scraps 
Hi Everyone! 
I hope you are having a great Friday~
I can't believe it's almost May! I seriously don't know where the month of April went?! I have been trying to stay somewhat caught up between my visits back and forth back home but I'll tell ya, it's been exhausting to say the least. My Dad is now at a Rehab facility and trying to settle in.  He still struggles with confusion, memory loss and this stroke has also took his vision...which is so hard! It just breaks my heart! We continue to take one day at a time and praying each day it gets just a little bit better. Thank you again for the prayers, we certainly appreciate them and would love for them to keep coming~

Today, I have a couple baby cards and tags to share using dies from My Creative TimeI am in need of a couple in the next few weeks so here is what I came up with~

I started with the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More die set for the base layer. The papers are from Echo Park~Bundle of Joy Collection. I used the Scallop Stitched Oval Dies and layered two of them and then popped this cute little giraffe on it. 
So cute, ha? 
The giraffe is a print and cut from the Silhouette store and cut on my Cameo. The celebrate is also from the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More  die set and adhered to a banner from the Vintage Stitched Label Die set. 
The tags are created with the Tag Dies and Tag Die Layers die keeping the design the same to match the cards. I finished with tying on a pretty bow using satin ribbon from my stash. Took me no time at all using the print and cut feature.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #314 Chevron and/or Polka Dots
2.) DL.ART April Linky Challenge~Anything Goes
3.) PDE Linky Challenge #170 Anything but a card
4.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #186 Anything Goes

Also.....Be sure to save the date~May 3rd and 4th, spread the word and come join the FUN next week as we help Jo from Jo's Scrap Shack celebrate her 5th Blogaversary!  A lot of great inspiration and lots of GREAT prizes~
All the details below:
Have a great weekend~

Easter Wishes card and Treat Box

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps
Hi Everyone!!
Today I am sharing a quick and simple little project that I made a few weeks ago for Easter that I just finally sent off to a sweet friend of mine. I am a bit behind on things, as all my spare time is driving back and forth to see my Dad who had a stroke on Apr 12th. So, my postings, blogging and commenting has taken a back seat for now~
I want to send out a special "thank you" to all of you who kept my Dad and our family in your thoughts and prayers, we appreciated it so much! Also, for the cards, packages and sweet messages as well for my birthday which was on the 12th to. I am so blessed to have such amazing blogger friends. You've truly touched my heart! So, THANK YOU!

I have a cute card and treat box to share using a few of Jaded Blossom dies and stamps. The base layer is created with the Scallop Rectangle Dies 1 and followed with the Rectangles Die 2. I layered the fun grass along the bottom added a couple eggs and sweet bunny all from the Spring Dies 1 (version 2)  die set. I stamped the sentiment with the Easter Basket Fun stamp set onto a
 Mini Tags Die 2.
For the adorable treat box~I started with Jaded Blossoms Kraft Box and decorated it with grass, eggs and bunny from the Spring Dies 1 (version 2) die set to match the card.
 I added a fun bow with SU ribbon and added a tag. The tag is stamped with the Spring Sweet Treats onto a tag using the Sweet Treats die set. I filled the box with 2 Easter Kit Kat bars that fit 
perfectly :)
