For those of you who've been following my blog, I've mentioned having lost my crafty Mo-Jo of late and that my camera seemed to have some "issues".  (No,  not user error this time...there was something wrong and I am happy to say it is now repaired, but unfortunately, not before I took the photos of my card and got the card into the mail to Mary Ann! So I apologize that the photos are not very good!).
 Unfortunately, my Mo Jo for creating still has not returned!  Miranda told me that Mary Ann loves flowers and loves to garden, so I created a simple and easy birthday card for her.  Let's take a look:

 I decided to make a Garden Glove shaped card for her!  This file was found
in the Silhouette store and I cut it out with my Cameo. 
The cuff of the glove is 2 shades of blue layered upon each other (not showing up so well in the photo)
and I inked the edges of the glove in brown to give it the look of working in the garden just a little!

I cut 2 of the flower shapes that was included in the file and layered them on top of each other with foam layering squares to give a little dimension and also curled the edges up.
I lined the inside of the card with pink cardstock and I used the Silhouette sketch pens 
to write my sentiment.
I was happy that it was sturdy enough to stand up on it's own!
This view give a better view of the dimension of the flowers and the two
tones in the cuff.
Mary Ann - I hope you enjoyed this special surprise hop and that you have 
a wonderful birthday!  I know you will have fun celebrating with your family!
You certainly have a very sweet daughter that arranged this hop just for you!
Happy Birthday!

Next on the list is Robin -  so please hop on over to see what a lovely birthday surprise she has for Mary Ann!
Thank you for visiting today!

I understand my mojo has been on vacation.

Teresa, your card is ADORABLE! I know she will love it when she gets it from me later today! I'm sure your MOJO will come back to you soon! Although it doesn't seem to me it has gone anywhere! Thank you so much for the kind words as usual! And my MOM was super excited about the surprise! She was squealing like a child on Christmas morning while on the telephone with me this morning. LOL Thank you for helping me celebrate my Mom's Birthday!!!!! Miranda :)
