Thank You!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!

Wow, it's been a while since I posted a project :(  I apologize but it's just been so busy here trying to get our flooring done. The in floor heating went in the bedroom over the weekend and now we are onto the tiling. We will then be on to the family room next. We are doing most of the work ourselves to try and keep the costs down some so that's where I have been even though I would much rather be crafting..... I will keep my fingers crossed that this all gets done in the next week or two :)

I did sneak in a little time to craft, yeah! 

My card base is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. I added a small blue mat on the bottom, cut at 2 1/4 x 4 3/4. I layered a white mat that was cut at 2 x 4 3/4 which I embossed both with the divine swirls folder. The white mat has a border that I added using a punch from Recollections. I then added a fun bow with crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM~colors antique white and daffodil which was made using their amazing bow maker. Super easy and so fun!

The pretty fabric flowers are from Recollections that I found at Michael's on clearance for 2.00 for a jar of them. The leaves are from Spellbinders~Foliage die set which I distressed with Tim Holtz-old paper. The
oval is from Spellbinders~Beaded Ovals die and the smaller oval is a SU punch. The Thank You sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping ~Heartfelt Gratitude. One of my favorite sets!

I wanted to play in a few challenges that I miss playing in. It was perfect because I needed a thank you card for a special friend who spent so much time helping me the day of the flood. I will be entering this in a challenge over at Go Fish ~Challenge #20-Thank you card using your favorite color (which one of mine is blue) BTW, I am really missing you guys at Go Fish!!

  18. Very very pretty card Sherrie:)

  19. Sherri not only are you a master of art, but with time as well. With all that you have going on I can't believe you were able to sneak in some craft time!!

  20. This is gorgeous, Sherrie!! Wow, those flowers are amazing! I love the colors you used and the fabulous bow!! Beautiful as always my friend!!

    It sounds like things are coming along with the renovations. In-floor heating would be Heaven!!

    I had to laugh at your question on what I do with all my cards...they are overtaking me!! I give some away, and I have some shelves in my craft room that I display some on, but the others I mostly keep in a great big, overflowing box, hoping to need them one day. I've thought about recycling items on some of the older ones and throwing the rest away, but I haven't gotten to that point yet :)
