My Craft Spot Challenge #84-Wish Big

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 

Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I was able to get some house work done, crafting, organizing done and even a little snowmobiling in! How about you?

It's time for another challenge at My Craft Spot! Today, the challenge is "Wish Big"! This is an awesome challenge........who doesn't need extra birthday cards on hand, right? 

I made a card using the Art Philosophy cartridge using the card feature for the shape which is cut at 
5 1/2. The base layer is cut at 5 1/4, the banner at 1 1/2 x 5 embossing it with the diamond folder and then a mat that is 3 x 3 1/3 for this cute mouse to sit on.  The little mouse cut is from the Birthday Bash cartridge which is cut at 3 1/3 plus all the layers. 


I used papers from My Minds Eye-Fine and Dandy Boy collection and distressed the edges with my distressing tool along with inking the edges with frayed burlap. The tags are cut at 1 1/2 and 1 3/4 from the Art Philosophy cartridge and then stamped using My Craft Spots Birthday Wishes stamp set. The 
fun banners are My Craft Spot Lacy Banners Metal Dies stamped using the fun Chunky Alphabet for the letters and then weaved some yummy My Craft Spot Traditional Baby Blue Bakers Twine through the loops and tied off with little bows. The fun skittles are from my friend  Carri at DoubleClick. She has an amazing assortment of colors. Be sure to check it  out-super fun to add to your cards or projects:)


Be sure to stop over at My Craft Spot to see all the awesome projects and then come and join in:)
Love to see what you create!
 I am also entering this in the following challenges:
1.)  Cricut Cardz Challenge #123~A Banner Year


Have a great day,

  20. What a darling card this is, I love the colours you used and the sentiment is just perfect! We arrived here in Arizona today and it has been raining for the last 3 days, there is even a chill in the air. No pool for me today LOL! But I guess this beats the snow. Glad I was able to find a internet connections tonight so I could catch up on my favorite blogs creations. Have a great week.
