Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Challenge-April Showers

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hello and Happy Friday Everyone! Wow, it's been a very busy week for me and I am so glad to see the weekend here! I haven't had much time to craft or blog this week but hoping to play some catch up over the weekend. Can you believe we are in for 3-6 inches of snow tonight, ugh!  What happened to spring???? That's MN for ya!

It is my birthday next week and I was given some money over Easter that is burning a hole in my pocket, lol! Too funny ha....I sound like a little kid!! So I am planning on some "me" time over the weekend with my daughter and future daughter in law. We are going to do a little shopping at the mall and then go to my favorite new store.....Hobby Lobby! Yeah, I shouldn't have any problems spending that cash, ha?

Today, we have another Fun Friday challenge going on at Little Scrap Pieces. We hope you come join us!  The challenge is: April Showers
Create a card, layout or project and use an umbrella, clouds, rain boots, etc.
Here is a quick card to share with you for some inspiration:
My card base is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and base layer at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4. I cut a 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 piece, added a fun border, then a piece of pattern paper along with a crinkle ribbon and then layering all that down. I cut the cookie monster at 6 1/2 from the Sesame Street Season's cartridge plus the layers. I embossed the cookie monster with the tiny bubbles folder and then added some fun googly eyes. I embossed the umbrella with the dots and spots folder and then lightly sanding it for texture and then pop dotted this cutie to the card. 
I added the fun tiny doily in the right corner using My Craft Spot's tiny doilies metal die and stamped the sentiment with My Craft Spot's tiny tags stamp set. I finished it with a crinkle ribbon bow from my friend Karen and some fun My Craft Spot twine. 
Be sure to pop over Here to see what the amazing DT has created for you. Come back and join in...we'd love to see what you create! 
I am also entering this in a challenge at: 
1.) Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #106-April Showers (must use an umbrella)
Thanks for visiting and have a fantastic weekend!
