Sweet Treats

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone!
I hope your are enjoying your weekend! I took a quick spin out of town to a craft fair with a friend yesterday and had a blast! The weather was absolutely gorgeous! I still managed to get back early enough to knock out a few things on my list, yeah! Today, I am finishing up on the bridal shower favors and I should be all set for the shower on Saturday! Phew, there sure has been plenty to do lately!

 I even took some time today to get in my craft room which I am really missing to whip up a little treat for a co-worker that has a birthday next week! I used a lot of fun products from My Craft Spot, even a few new ones from the latest release!
I used a file from the Silhouette store for the cute bucket purse and cut it on my cameo. I cut it out using papers from DCWV La Creme paper pack. I embossed the border along the bottom and added pretty little butterflies which are stamped with My Craft Spot's Jar Full of Flowers, fussy cut and adhered in place. I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen to the butterflies for a pretty shimmery look.
I tied on a pretty bow using midnight black and vintage vanilla crinkle ribbon and finished with a tag. The tag is the Tiny Tags metal die and the sentiment is stamped with the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set. I finished by filling it with an asst of snickers and milky way candy bars :) Yum!
I also made a coordinating card to go along with the purse. The card base and base layers are the Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight. I followed that with a label which is cut at 2" from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I stamped the sentiment with the new Build a Birthday stamp set and added a few butterflies to the card as well. The flower is cut at 3" and leaves at 1" all from the Flower Shoppe cartridge. I added a pretty little flower border using the new Fancy Edges 2 metal die and added pretty rhinestones to the center.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) My Craft Spot Challenge #140 Fancy Edges

    I started using Mall Chimp about a week ago and I like it so far. I also love the fact that you have control of your subscribers and data. Veronica from VK Design transferred all my subscribers and did her magic since I'm a little slow with all this tech stuff sometimes. If you have the time to play with Mall Chimp, I think you can totally figure it out. Let me know if you decide to use it and if you like it:) Hugs
