To my Favorite Chick!

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with passion!!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I can't believe a week has gone by since I last posted. Oh, where does the time go these days?  It has just been a busy time for me but eventually things will slow down so I can get back to some serious crafting.

I hope you all had a great weekend. We had a blast at the Mall of America and yes, I found my shoes.......Oh, I kept thinking of a couple of my blogger buddies, Lisa and Shelly who just love shoes and how fun it would have been to have them shoe shopping with us.  However, I am SURE I saved money because they are big enablers, lol!

I have a quick card to share with you today for a challenge over at Creative Cutter Room. The theme is Chick or Chicken!


This shaped card is cut from the Birthday Bash cartridge at 4.76 using my gypsy to weld the shape together. The circle is cut at 3.94 and the cute little chick is cut from the Country Life cartridge at 3 1/4. I embossed the chick's layer with the tiny bubbles folder and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz-walnut stain.  I added some burlap from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique and the sentiment is from My Pink Stamper-Tootie Hoo Puns set. I finished it off with a double bow using crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot, some twine and a fun button.
Have a great day!

Thanks for visiting,
Sherrie K

  12. I'm so glad you had a great weekend and were able to find your shoes!! Oh my gosh, we would have had SO much fun shopping together!! I'm a little embarrassed to admit I have several pairs of shoes in my closet I've never even worn yet!! I don't know what it is, but I just can't stop buying them...I have about ten pairs of black flip flop/sandals of different designs, heel height...Who needs that many black flip flops?? I seriously have a problem. So I can pretty much guarantee you saved money without Shelly and me there!! :D

    This card is absolutely adorable!! I love the shape and the sweet chickie!! Here's another of my issues...I had to have that cart and I think I've used it once. So sad!! I love the touch of burlap and the ribbon bow, as always, is fabulous!! What an awesome card!! LOVE it :)

    I hope the wedding plans are going well and you are able to rest with so much going on!! Hugs my sweet friend :)

  15. Sherrie, I bet you had a great weekend! So excited you found your shoes!! I have to admit I'm with Lisa I have shoes in my closet I haven't worn - and I like Lisa I also have ten pairs of black heels - Why? Well I guess you can never have enough black heels. So you are right without Lisa and I there we saved you some $$.
    What a CUTE card. Love that chicken against the burlap and fabulous bow!
    Hope you have a GREAT day Sherrie!
