Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a great week! I have been pretty busy watching my Granddaughters and also playing a little catch up with house work.
I am hoping to spend some time this week organizing my craft room which seems as tho a tornado hit it, lol! Anyone else feel that way about their craft space/room??
I will have a busy couple weeks crafting for an upcoming commitment so I better get things back in place so I can find what I'm looking for when I need it, hehe!

I did manage to squeeze a little time in to make a birthday card for my little niece who just had a birthday and thought I would share it quick.  
Hope she likes it!
 I cut my card base and base layer with card stock from SU. The next layer is pattern paper from Basic Grey~ I stamped this adorable little PK elephant, colored it with copics and then layered it on a gray panel. I stamped and fussy cut an additional birthday hat and using foam dots adhered it down giving it a little dimension.
I cut the little balloons at 1 1/2, 1 3/4 and 2" from Create A Critter. I embossed them with the Divine Swirls folder and they are tied with black licorice Trendy Twine~
The celebrate is from My Creative Time Stitched Rectangular Frame Die & More metal die set.
Also, be sure to enter in my birthday giveaway.....still going on HERE
