It's a Mother's Day Challenge

Fabulous use of ribbons last week everyone! it's going to be another difficult choice picking our top 5!!

This week we are focusing on cards (or other projects) for Mother's Day. So break out the feminine goodies and create something for Mom to show us!

We have a prize sponsor this week - the lovely Adeline Brill! You can visit her blog at SweetAline and her CTMH website at http://sweetaline.myctmh.com/. Be sure to hop over and say hello to Adeline and thank her for sponsoring our prize for the week! Here's a peek:


Ok, now onto the DT creations for Mom:














Beautiful, right? Now we want to see what YOU create! Just put those creative talents into something for Mom and then post to your blog or other online gallery (Splitcoaststampers is a great, free choice) and then come back here and link up so we can stop by and see what you created!

Thanks to everyone who joined our Facebook group - we are now over 300 members at our FB group and one lucky member will win some goodies! Be sure to send your upline, downline, sideline, customers, friends and family to us here at the challenge blog!! The more, the merrier!

See you Friday with our next Friday Five and watch for an announcement soon about our 1st Guest DT member!

Oops! I guess I was a week ahead of myself...my ribbon card for last week was my Mother's Day Card for this year.(And I was so proud of myself that I got it done early for a change) LOL!

Thanks for this challenge. Sometimes that's the push I need to do what needs to be done.

My mom's birthday was last week and she loved the card I did for the ribbon challenge. Hope she likes this one too!! At least these challenges are keeping me caught up with cards for my Mom :)

I'm so loving this website! The DT work and submittals are just unreal, thanks for all the inspiration!

Beth said...

The 1st ever challenge site where I feel like I can actually participate! LOVE the inspiration from everyone else.

My project was not created for my mom, but for my daughter's God Mother which is an important job too. Hope thats o.k. She rarely gets the time to create goodies for herself, so I'm glad to surprise her.

I made this overlay page for my mom for mother's day. She and I used to spend mom and daughter time scrapbooking and now that I am a mom of a little girl (soon to be two little girls) I love to create page kits for her to scrap her grandma brag pictures. The solid black area is left for a journaling block.
