Happy Birthday

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone & Happy Friday!
I hope you had a great week and looking forward to a wonderful weekend~
We are expecting temps in the 50's over the weekend and for this time of year..sounds amazing! We happen to have our youngest Granddaughter staying with us for 4 days while her parents are on a mini vacation. So we have our hands full.... but enjoying little Ailey bug like crazy!

I had a little time in my craft room and needed a few birthday cards~So, today I am sharing a couple quick cards I created. I'm not to crazy on how these turned out but I thought I would share
them anyway :(
I started with a card base using Jaded Blossoms Scallop Rectangle Dies 1. I then followed with a  background panel using TH distressed inks.  The little critter is Die Versions Whispers Bug Friends Die and the balloons are Impression Obsession Heart Balloon Die. The pattern papers are Echo Parks Bundle of Joy collection. 
Along the bottom is the Penny Black Edger Die. The Memory Box Honeycomb Remnant Die was used on the top right and the Happy Birthday are Tutti Designs Word Set Dies. I finished with a little twine bow and some fun little pearl dots. 
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Scrapy Land Challenge #61 Anything Goes, plus use any die brand Scrapy Land carries
2.) Seize the Birthday Anything Goes Birthday Theme
3.) Cut It Up Challenge #116 Birthday cards
4.) DL.ART  March Linky Challenge~Anything Goes
5.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #178 Anything Goes

  11. funny thing about cards you don't really like is we are our own worst critics and who ever we give the cards to always love them. Enjoy your time with you little Ailey.

  12. It's funny how we each feel about our own cards! Sometimes we're happy with them and sometimes were like UGH! LOL I actually like these cards! I think they are adorable and I love all the different dies you used - they look awesome! I hope you enjoy that quality time with your sweet grandbaby! I know she'll wear you down but we both know, it'll be so much fun having her there with you! Enjoy the warmer temps too! You never know when old man winter might pop back in on ya! :) HUGS!
