Thank You

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone! 
I hope you all had a great weekend~
Last week was definitely a busy one! I will not lie, I am a little tired after a full week so I am kind of laying low this week, hehe! I had a wonderful time with my Grand babies~the snuggles were the best! Arya loved it, especially at bed time~We had our routine... I had to read her 3 books, sing her a song, say our prayers and tickle her back, with in seconds she was sleeping AND so was I, lol!! Arya even had to have Lacy in the bedroom when we said our prayers...oh my gosh, she was so cute!
 I loved it!!
I seriously had no time on my computer~maybe like 3 times for a half hour...that's about it! I am going to be playing catch up all week with blogging and hopefully some crafting to :)

Today I am sharing a few thank you cards that I made last week. I was holding off to share them until my friends received them~I also was really low on thank yous so I even made a couple extras, yeah! You can never have to many, ha?
I started with card stock from SU for my base. The base layer is petty pattern paper from Authentique~Delightful collection. The edges are distressed using the DIA..just love the look!
The next layer I created a fun background using the Jaded Blossom Paint Splatters 2 stamp set. I then stamped the flower with the Daisies stamp set. I stamped the flower image again on pattern paper, fussy cut it out and then foam tape for added dimension. The sentiment is Craftin Desert Diva's Say it Big stamp set. I finished with fun skittles from my friend, Carri.
I am entering this in the  following challenges:
1.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
2.) DL.ART June Linky~Anything Goes



  1. These are absolutely gorgeous, Sherrie!! The flowers are so beautiful!! I love the distressed edges and the stamping!! They look amazing!! What beautiful cards!!

    I'm so glad you had a wonderful week with your precious little grandbabies!! How sweet that Arya wanted Lacy in the room to say prayers!! She's so adorable!! It sounds like an awesome week...exhausting but wonderful :) I hope you are able to rest and recharge the next few days!! It got hot and humid here so no working in the yard for me. Now we have storms in the forecast all least everything is green and growing, so I can't complain ;) Have a wonderful, restful week my sweet friend!! Happy Monday!! Big hugs :)

  2. Wow! These are wonderful. I am sure your friends that received them will put them on display and enjoy the pretty flowers. I like the distressed look too, but I always wonder if the edges need just a little bit more. Glad you were able to enjoy some family time...don't worry about the's not going anywhere!

  3. Beautiful! More beautiful in person, thank you my sweet friend, it certainly brightened my day!!. I really love the distressing I love making distressed cards to. It is so nice you get to spend time with your grandchildren

  12. I'm so Happy you had a great time with those adorable grand babies.... I bet they wore you out! I think we forget how much work they really are.... and as we get older it hits us like a brick! I felt that way when I stayed with my niece for a few days about 2 yrs. ago.... Her children are so sweet... and my boys are big already so I don't have to wake up at 6am anymore.... but when I was there.... they just talked & talked & talked & wanted to do this, & that, & this again! Boy I was tired and said to myself... I'm so glad my kids are big! HAHA!!! Any who -- your cards are soo pretty! I just love the flowers.... :) Have a Crafty Day!!!

  21. Your Thank You Cards are so pretty Sherrie, Good Job on all that Fussy Cutting. That is not one of my favorite things to do because I am terrible at It. Snuggles with the Grand Babies are the best. :0)
