Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone! 
I hope your having a great day~
I was able to sneak in some crafty time...finally!! I miss everyone in blog land! Things have been very busy in our neck of the woods. We've been spending a lot of time with our grandchildren as we welcome two new grand babies to the family (this makes 5 now). Oliver Jay 2 months old and
Kimber Ann 2 weeks old. I have also been doing a lot of traveling to go back to visit my Dad who is still in the Stroke Recovery Center recovering from the stroke he had in April. My time has been very limited these past few months with crafting and blogging but I hope to get back to a regular schedule very soon.

I am sharing a couple of "quick" and "simple" cards I created today.  I used some of the distressed Oxides inks which I finally got a chance to try. I used the worn lipstick and cracked pistachio on
these cards.
After creating the water colored background, I used a Sizzix thinlits Mixed Media die to create a stencil and ran embossing paste to add texture. I distressed the edges with the DIA. The pretty doily in the center is the Frantic Stamper Lace Geometric Flower Doily Die and layered on Jaded Blossoms Stitched Circle Die.
Along the bottom I used the pretty Thanks Scallop Border Die die from Simon Says Stamps. I added a little ribbon from my stash and gathered it along the edge of the border.
The cluster of flowers are Recollections and Wild Orchids mixed pastel apple blossoms. Beneath the flowers are Cherry Lynn Designs Dandelions Die and Sue Wilson Designs Mosaic Leaves from Scrapy Land. The gorgeous butterfly is Die Versions Pretty Butterflies Die.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Simon Says Monday Challenge Distress it
2.) DL.ART July Linky Anything Goes
3.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #196 Anything Goes



  1. Love your sweet card! So much exciting news, congrats on all the grandbabies! And sorry to hear your Dad is still not well, keeping him in my prayers! I have tried to get in my craft room, sadly it is just not possible at this time. The girls have just too much going on and with only a couple of years left of school I need to spend my time wisely! Sure miss everyone! Any plans to come visit? The CKC convention will be here in September, I can only go 1 of the days because it conflicts with cross country, keep me posted!

  2. Your cards are so pretty! With all of the family stuff keeping you busy, I can't believe you were able to find some crafty time! Enjoy your family time and the grands :)

  6. So glad you found a little time to craft, and what pretty cards you created! I love the pink and green combination, and there are too many wonderful details about these to call them "quick and simple". Take care of yourself during these busy times, and thanks for sharing with us at Jo's Scrap Shack.
