Your friendship is such a blessing!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion  
Hello Everyone and Happy Friday! 
I hope you are enjoying your sure is going fast, ha?! I am happy to have found some time in my craft room and to play in a few challenges as I haven't had the chance for a while now.  I am certainly missing my craft time and my bloggy friends :( 

My time has been very consumed with traveling back and forth home a couple times a week to be with my Father who is struggling with health issues but it is where I need to be right now. 

I have been able to at least keep up with my Design Team projects for Scrapy Land which gets me in my room for that but honestly that is about all I can do for now due to these circumstances. I am sorry for those of you I haven't visited in a while but I hope to get back to it as soon I am able.

I happen to run across a fun design and little video on You Tube that Sparkle N Sprinkle shared a while ago that I had saved. So, I picked up the product and followed their technique as I was so inspired!!!
I had my bloggy buddies in mind when choosing these sentiments.
Please know........ "Your friendship is such a blessing" & "So Thankful"
For my card I used Sparkle N Sprinkle Stampendous Corner Flower Metal Stencil. I layered Sticker Paper down and then sprinkled Teal Velveteen glitter down and rubbed it through the stencil. I did the same with Dogwood Rose glitter and then the Gecko glitter. I then finished with Crystal Ice over the whole panel. I cut around the flowers and mounted it on a piece of white card stock and then onto the card base. 
The butterfly is Jaded Blossoms Spring Dies 2 and cut out of sticker paper and then dipped into Dogwood Rose and Gecko glitter. The sentiment is Cardz TV Count Your Blessings stamp set. 
The tag is Jaded Blossoms Luggage Tag Die and followed the same design as card. I finished with stamping the sentiment with Cardz TV Mini Messages stamp set that I won playing in their challenge. 
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Die Cutting Diva's Challenge #375 Fluttering Butterfly
2.) Double D Challenges Challenge~Butterflies
3.) Cardz TV Challenge #53 Anything Goes
4.) DL.ART June Linky Challenge~Anything Goes

  17. Good relationships are worth their weight in gold. It doesn't take a sage to recognise that when your time on this Earth comes to it's conclusion you will measure your life by the good relationships you have built and enjoyed. Good relationships make you feel good.  what to talk to a girl
