Thank You Very Much!

Hello Everyone!  Still having some computer issues, it works when it wants to.  Sorry I haven't been commenting as much as I usually do but sometimes I simply can't.  I a couple of cards to share today, but first I want to say a big THANK YOU to my daughter and all of the ladies that participated in the surprise birthday blog hop!  I was totally surprised and sooooooo excited!!!!!!!  I would also like to say THANK YOU for all of the birthday wishes, I have the best followers and bloggie friends.  

This week, I decided to try out some dies.  I very rarely use them but thought I'ld give it a try.  The banner on the Thank You card is from Verve.  And the flags/banners on the birthday card is from MFT.  I'm hoping to experiment with some dies soon!  My "Thank You" stamp is from Hero Arts and the birthday stamps are from Paper Trey Ink.

Don't forget to head over to Nana's Scrap Spot to see who won the blog candy!  She picked one winner from my blog!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Weekend!

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!!!!! 

Here are a few pics of my Mom through the years......

I'm Back!

Hello!  How are you today!  I would like to thank each and everyone of you for the wonderful comments left on my last post for both me and my daughter.  I'm back for now until my computer decides to give me some more trouble.  LOL

I have three cards to share with you guys today.  All of them are A2 sized and I used the same CTMH stamp set to create them.  I've been having the stamp set a while and never used it, it's called "The Perfect Day".  Of course I colored my images with my Spectrum Noir markers and chalk.  The paper I used is from my scrap box.  I'm still trying to use that up, it seems to be taking over.  My ribbon is from Michael's and the bling and buttons are from Hobby Lobby.

Enjoy the rest of your week and I'll see you back again next week!  

Mary Ann
