Squeaky Kisses & Birthday Wishes

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps 
Hello and Happy Friday!
It's been a busy week for us and we and looking forward to some R & R!! We are on our way shortly to a friends cabin for the weekend, yippy!  The weather doesn't seem like it will be cooperating for us to snowmobile (since they are calling for rain/snow mix) and temps in the 30's but we are going to try some ice fishing, snowshoeing and the best of all...we will have the traveling sauna with us!!!!
 I can't wait to kick back and hang out with these guys :)
Have a great weekend everyone!

Today, I have a couple birthday cards to share using Jaded Blossoms Mouse Bites stamp set. This is such a cute set and so versatile and it has a lot of sentiments to :)
 The pattern papers used are from Authentique~Loyal Collection. 
I cut the base mat and base layers.  I then continued with a 3 x 3 square using pretty shiny silver paper and then a 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 using Authentique paper. With foam adhesives, I mounted this sweet little mouse on it. I used the Mini Tag Dies in the right corner for the tag.
The mouse is stamped with the Mouse Bites stamp set and color with copics. I also added some rosy cheeks and a little doodling with my white gel pen. I also pieced in a few things (hat and scarf) using the papers from this collection to tie it all together. 
The sentiment is stamped with the same set onto a Mini Tag Dies 2. I finished by adding a little silver string from my stash and tied on a bow. 
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Simon Says Monday Challenge~Chill Out
2.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #172 Anything Goes
3.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #196 Winter
4.) Seize the Birthday Anything Goes-Topping Dashing and/or Doodling
