ABC26 Mother's Day

Welcome back for our weekly challenges!  I'd like to give a special thank you to all of our new followers as well as our weekly players, it's so great to have you play along with us each week!   Last week's challenge was wonderful and we enjoyed seeing all the neat reycling ideas you used.  Since Mother's Day is just 2 weeks away we thought it would be a great time to honor our mothers in making some Mother's Day cards!

ABC26  'Mother's Day'
Simply create any Mother's Day card you'd like!  We want everyone to be able to play along (and for some of you Mother's Day has already passed), so everyone is welcome to create a feminine card instead for our challenge this week.

Don't have a blog?  No problem, we will visit your online gallery; simply use the keywords ABC26 for this challenge.  

Below are our design team cards to get you inspired.  Be sure to click on their names to visit their blogs!

My card for this week.  I went for a more vintage monochromatic feel with a pop of color.  Muted but I like it!

first time I've used the Stippled Blossom set. It was so much easier than I thought it would be.

Lest you think I've lost my mind... the inside of my card says Happy Mother's Day. ;) I'm actually going to give this card to a young friend of mine who is expecting her first child - a boy - in July.

Because Mother's Day was a while ago in the UK are we allowed to enter cards made for females instead? Thanks for a fab challenge and great DT inspiration hugs Karen

Hi Karen,

Yes, we want everyone to be able to play along! Please feel free to go ahead and enter a feminine card and I'm going to go ahead and edit our challenge description to add that. Actually I thought of that earlier, but I forgot to mention it.

Thanks you!
