My Craft Spot Challenge # 94 Cute Critters

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 

Hello Everyone and happy Monday!!! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. It sure went fast, ha? We had some strange weather....imagine that! Rain, hail, freezing rain and snow. Yuk! We ended up staying close to home which was a bummer for our shopping trip :(
Well, it's time for another fun challenge at My Craft Spot today, yahoo! 
The challenge this week is: Cute Critters~
Doesn't this sound like fun? Fire up those machines and come join us in the challenge! 

The month of April is a big month of birthdays for friends and family. Some of my friends are (along with me) yeah, I know~ it stinks....are turning the big "50" in the next few weeks. So, I need to get my creative juices going and get some cards made, lol! 
For today, I  have made a birthday card for my little niece who is going to be 5 this here's to Paige! 
The card base and base layer a the Spellbinders Grand Labels Four die.  The pattern paper is from DCWV~Animal Cracker paper stack. I cut the adorable little critter at 3 3/4 plus the layers from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge. I added doodling, some rosy cheeks, freckles and glossy accents to the nose. I also gave this critter a birthday hat using My Craft Spot's lacy banners metal die set to create the hat.  
The same die set was used for the the fun accent piece in the upper left corner stamping the cute sentiment from the tiny tags stamp set.
I finished the card by adding a caribbean bow, some maraschino twine and a fun tag which is from the tiny tags metal die set and stamped with the tiny tags stamp set. 
This is definitely one of my favorite die sets!! If you are looking for a tag die set..seriously, this is a must have! I just love all the tiny tags to choose from and the fact that Kimberly has not one but two tiny tags sentiment stamp sets is also is a win, win! It is SO fun and perfect for your projects :)

Be sure to pop over to My Craft Spot to see what the DT has created for you and then come back and join in! Can't wait to see what you create!
