Happy Monday!

Hi!  How are you today?  I have a few cards to share.  Two with the same stamp, I often like to try it with different backgrounds, etc.  Take a look, tell me what you think!

I picked up this sweet stamp at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section!!!

My Great-Grandson, Cayden is going to be 1 years old on Saturday, so I made this cute little card for him.  Where does the time go? 

Thanks for stopping by today, I will be really busy this weekend, my youngest Grandson is getting married on Friday and then Cayden's birthday party is on Sunday.  Hopefully I'll be able to get in my craft room and make something to share with you next week!  

Have a Great Week!

Some Flowers and a Graduation

Hello Everyone!  I have a couple of cards to share with you today.  Two with flowers and one graduation card for a very special boy in my life.  My great nephew has completed his GED course and passed!!!  I am very proud of him.
 My first card is a wedding card for my grandson Chris who is getting married to a wonderful girl on the 23rd of this month.  I embossed the layer with the D'Vine Swirl embossing folder.  My scalloped oval is from Elegant Edges. The stamp is from Technique Tuesday and it was colored with Spectrum Noir markers.

My second card is a friendship card.  All of my paper is from my scrap box.  The pretty polka-dot ribbon is from JoAnn's.  This stamp is also from Techinque Tuesday and I colored it with my markers.

My final card was made using my cricut!  I embossed the background paper with the spots and dots embossing folder.

I hope you enjoyed my cards today and I hope to see you again soon!  Enjoy your weekend!

Same Stamp, two cards!

Hello!!!!!  How are you?  I'm so happy you found time to stop by today.  Sorry for the gap in posts, I am still having some computer issues but more so, I've been under the weather and my RA is taking it's toll.  I'm trying desperately to get in my craft room but my body has other ideas.  Here are a couple of cards that I was able to make:

All of the paper used on these cards are from my scrap box.  The gorgeous rose stamp is from Techinque Tuesday Stamps.  On the red card, the oval was cut from Elegant Edges Cricut Cartidge and on the purple card, i used a small doiley.  

I hope you enjoyed your visit!  Be sure to come back on Thursday, I'll be participating in a "Christmas In July" Blog Hop!!!!!

Mary Ann's Surprise 65th Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to "Mary Ann's Surprise Birthday" Blog Hop!  

If you have arrived from Ashley's Blog, then you are in the right place.  If you are reading this from your dashboard or just happened by head over to Nana's Scrap Spot to start at the beginning, we don't want you to miss any of the fun!

This is Miranda from Nana's Scrap Spot taking over my Mom's Blog today to celebrate her birthday!!!!!  

Let me tell you a little about my wonderful Mom!  She is a Mother, Wife, Grandmother, Care Giver, Friend and all around awesome person.  She is my very best friend!  We talk every day and try to see each other as much as possible.  She is AWESOME!  

Some of my Mom's favorite things are......gardening, crafting, vacationing and spending time with family.  She is a florist by trade but doesn't do much of that anymore, mostly for family in her backyard shop.  

A few years back, she had a TIA which put things in perspective for me.  You think your parents are going to be here forever or at least you hope so, right.  But after her health scare, which by the way she made a full recovery, our bond just got stronger.  I make it a point to see her as much as possible and we vacation together; you know a little mother/daughter time!  I LOVE MY MOMMY!!!!!!  And that is the reason I am doing this for her!  Mom, I hope you enjoy your special day!!!!

What blog hop would be complete without a  little candy?  Well we have some candy up for grabs......  Mary from  Cardz TV with Mary is our sponsor for this hop!  She will be giving away TWO stamp sets!  Be sure to stop by her blog and give her some bloggie love!  And head over to  facebook and become a Cardz TV Stamps follower! 

In addition, I will be giving away a Michael or JoAnn's gift card, winner's choice.  To be eligible for the blog candy, you are required to visit each stop in the hop and leave a comment!  The winner will be announced Friday on my blog! 

Don't forget to leave a birthday message for the birthday girl!!!!!
