You Brighten my Day!!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!!


Hello Everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful week!!  It sure has been a beautiful week here in MN.  It has been in the mid 80's this whole week and wow, talk about gorgeous evenings!

Even though I haven't been posting much :( I have been really busy with wedding projects which is consuming all my free time lately. I did get a little time yesterday afternoon and made a card that I would like to share with you......hope you like it!

The base of my shaped card is from the Spellbinders Grand Labels Four die along with the base layer which I embossed with the cuttlebug flower folder. I have inked the edges using SU~Bashful Blue. I added some fun burlap from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique and then layered the orange mat which is from Spellbinders Labels Nine. The bird cage and bird is from Spellbinders Bird Sanctuary die...what a fun die set :)



I added a pretty Spellbinders Fancy tag and the sentiment is from Pink By Design-Summer Vacation set.  I topped it off with some awesome crinkle ribbon from my dear blogger friend, Karen from Little Scrap Pieces.

I am entering this in the following challenge:
1.) Little Scrap Pieces ~Fun Friday-use an animal
2.) Paper Playtime ~Challenge #80 Anything Goes
3.) Die Cuttin Divas ~Challenge # 76
4.) Krafty Girls ~Challenge #13 Shaped card
5.) DL.ART ~Happy Birthday Linky Party

Thanks for visiting,
Sherrie K

  7. Pretty Bird card creation. Was going to buy the Spellbinder Grand Calibur on Sun when JoAnns had ad on sale for $89.99 reg price $139.99 but found out that the opening is not high enough to use on Sizzix & Tim Holtz die cuts; at least that was the way the box looked. JoAnns did not have the item on hand and was taking special orders but only wanted it if would do what the Sizzix BIGkick would do and more and does not seem that it does.
