SUO Challenge #44 – May is For Mothers!

     One of the most popular times of the year for making those special handmade greeting cards and gifts is the two weeks leading up to Mother's Day!  So here we are right in the thick of Mother's Day preparation with a challenge that will be sure to gather interest around our Stampin' Up! world.

     Even for those of us who do not have a mother with whom to celebrate the day, or who are not ourselves a mother, there is usually someone special who is a special mother in our lives.  I have three special young women in my life who are mothers to my grandchildren, and they give me good reason to celebrate Mother's Day each and every year.  It is for them that I make my special Mother's Day cards and gifts.  I hope you will join me and the rest of the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge Design team in making and displaying projects that you make to celebrate Mother's Day 2012!  Just add your project using the Link tool at the end of today's post!

     To participate in our challenge, make a card and post a photo of it to your blog or a gallery on the internet, and come back here and use our link tool at the bottom of this post to share the photo with us!  We're looking for cards posted to the internet after April 30, 2012, and (of course!) made with Stampin' Up! products only.    The products may be those that are in current catalogs, or they may be retired products.  But (as our blog title says) SUO – Stampin' Up! Only!  This means that Products from other papercrafting, rubber stamp, or other crafting companies may not be included in your project if Stampin' Up! sells a like product.  For example, Stampin' Up! does not sell sewing thread.  So use of sewing thread from another company is just fine.  Stampin' Up! does not sell picture frames, so use of picture frames from another company is fine.  If you have a question, please send an e-mail to our Coordinator, Robin Messenheimer, and she'll be glad to answer it!

     As with the last challenge, the time for this challenge is going to be one day shorter than usual to accommodate some scheduling conflicts.  We'll also be a bit late in announcing the Top 3 for this challenge – but it will only be a day or two later than usual.
