UR the Best!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone and Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a great week and looking forward to the weekend! I am looking forward to catching up on some rest.  After being on vacation and running the whole time, I think it's caught up with me.....I am pooped out, lol!

We have another awesome challenge for you at Little Scrap Pieces and hope you come check it out and then come join in:) We'd love to see your creations!!! 
This weeks challenge is: Mothers Day! 
By the way...Happy Mother's Day to all you Mom's out there! I hope you have a fantastic day and
get totally spoiled and pampered!!! 

Here is my project: 
I made a fun folded note card holder that was inspired by a birthday gift I received from my friend and blogger buddy, Karen just a few weeks back. I just loved it and thought it would make such a great gift idea as well. 
I dropped Karen a message and she sent me HERE for all the directions to make this awesome holder.  I used pattern papers from Bo Bunny and Lasting Impressions for this project.

After completing the holder I made 4 cards to fit inside and on the other side I added a smaller note pad of paper and 4 envelopes.
The 4 cards are sized at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and made 2 of each design. The flower is My Creative Time's stitched daisy die and the sentiment is My Craft Spot's Butterfly Kisses stamp set. I topped them each off with a fun double bow with some sheer ribbon from my stash :)
Here is a side view to show how folds together nicely and secured with a fun double bow:)
 I made the handle by using a SU oval scalloped punch and tied a fun double bow with ribbon from my friend, Karen at Little Scrap Pieces to keep the bag from opening. I tucked in a ticket tag using My Craft Spot's Ticket Die set and the sentiment is My Craft Spot's Postage Stamps stamp set. I added a small scalloped oval and oval circle to the front of the holder and stamped "UR the Best" with My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags 2 stamp set.
Thanks so much for stopping!

1.) Scrappy Moms Stamps  Terrific Tuesday Challenge-Mother's Day
