God Bless America!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!! 
Hello Everyone! I am sorry I haven't had the chance to post much this week. It has been extremely busy for me lately! We are still working on my sons place and things are really coming along. Kitchen flooring was installed yesterday and carpet gets installed next week:) Yay, what a LONG project this has been but it's starting to come together!!  Thank goodness, because it is dipping into my craft time, lol!!!  Darn it anyway!

With it being Friday...you know what happens on Friday! It is Fun Friday at Little Scrap Pieces and we have another great challenge this week! 
The challenge is: 
Let's here it for the red, white and blue
Here is a little inspiration: 
I used a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Twenty Two for the base and base layer of my card. It is about a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 card. I embossed the red mat with the spots and dots folder. I then followed it with a Spellbinders Labels Twenty Two and then popped this adorable image that I cut at 2 1/2 from A Child's Year cartridge. 
I used My Creative Time's Vintage Stitched Labels Die for the banner and inked it with TH weathered wood. I then stamped the sentiment with My Creative Time's My Little Firecracker stamp set.
I topped it off with a yummy bow using SU real real striped ribbon I had in my stash. 
Be sure to pop over Little Scrap Pieces and check out the amazing inspiration for this challenge!
We hope you come join us!
I am also entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Celebrate the Occasion Challenge # 113-Memorial Day
2.) Crafty Ribbons Challenge #46-Anything Goes with Ribbon
3.) Everyday is an Occasion Sunday {Fun}day #9 Linky Party
Cut it Up Challenge #19-Make it mini
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day!
