hoot hoot hooray~Happy Birthday

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion 
Hello Everyone!
I hope your having a great day!
It has been pretty nice in our neck of the woods for this time of year. It's been in the 40's and they are saying the 50's by the weekend! Yay! I'm really struggling trying to find some mojo after being gone. I haven't had a lot of time in my craft room this week either....which probably doesn't help?!  I am hoping to get in my craft room some over the weekend to start on  Easter projects~that will be here before we know it!

 I am sharing some birthday cards I created using some fun product from Jaded Blossom. I am finally getting around to using this cute new stamp set from Jaded Blossom~perfect for their challenge going on right now to which is to use something new
(use a sentiment or stamp set you've never used before)
I started with a white card base, followed by a panel cut using the Card Mat Dies. I cut a small piece out of the bottom of the base layer using the Panel Dies. I  then used the panel dies and cut again a separate panel in white used to stamp the sentiment on and slid it in place.  The adorable owl and sentiments are from the You're a Hoot stamp set~
The owl is stamped onto a Stitched Circle Die and layered onto a Scallop Circle Die. I colored the darling owls with copic and then with Wink of Stella. The hearts are cut at 1 3/4 from the Artiste cartridge...yup, fired up the Cricut to! I finished with a fun double sheer bow, string bow and button in the center.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Jaded Blossom  March Challenge~Use Something New
(Use a sentiment or stamp set you've never used before)
2.) Seize the Birthday Anything Goes Birthday
3.) Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~A Bit O'Green
4.) Craftin Desert Divas Linky Challenge~Lots of Layers
5.) DL.ART March Linky~Anything Goes

  3. Oh my gosh, what an amazing collection Sherrie! Just loving that sweet owl! It's been a record breaking year for warm weather here in Ontario too! Spring has arrived about 3 months early and humans and animals alike are scurrying around trying to prepare. Even the trees are confused! tee hee. Crazy world! hugs :)

  4. 40's and 50's!! Where's my winter coat!?!??! LOL!!! Of course, you know where I LIVE ... so you know I am a WIMP!! LOL!!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeee these!! LOVING the colors and those sweet owls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. These are so absolutely adorable, Sherrie!! I love those sweet owls!! You showcased them perfectly in all the colors!! The bows are gorgeous!! I love the matching clothes pins on the hearts!! And yay, Cricut!! I have to practically relearn it every time I turn it on ;) I adore these beautiful cards!! Thanks so much for playing along at DL.ART!!

    I'm glad the temps are warming up there!! It's been so nice here, I've had the windows open a couple of days. Now it's raining...started yesterday and it's not supposed to stop until next week. Great. I'll be down in my craft room building an ark soon ;) But the daffodils are blooming so it makes my heart happy to know spring truly is on the way!! I hope your mojo returns soon (though by looking at these cards, it never left!!) I know how hard it is to get into the swing of things after being gone. I also know what you mean about struggling to get in your craft room. I haven't been in mine in a week and I don't even know if I'll get in there this weekend. Real life is totally getting in the way. I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, warm weekend my sweet friend!! Happy Friday!! Big hugs :)
