Day 1 of the Mothers and Daughters Traditions Blog Roll and our Thursday Card Challenge “Rolled” into One!


I am excited to be the first Design Team member to host a challenge for this fantabulous event. Mothers and Daughters Creations is sponsoring a blog roll involving the members of the the scrap book and card design teams. Each day we will be featuring one or more challenges plus some wonderful information about Mother's Day, the meanings of flowers, ideas for gifts you can make yourself, and inspiration galore for wonderful cards, scrap book pages, and decorative elements.

You can find all of the exciting details about this blog roll at Traditions Central on the main Mothers and Daughters Challenge Blog, where our own Mother and Daughter Team of Linda and Tamara will be sharing some very special Mothers Day memories and traditions to start us off. I hope to see you playing along with us every day, now through Mother's Day!

Our first challenge for you is our weekly Thursday Card challenge. This week, we challenge you to create a card using layers. You can use layers in a number of ways... your card can have a variety of layers, your image can have layers to "pop" it, your layers can be one on top of another and adhered together, or you can have separate pages lying atop one another.

Blog candy for this challenge is sweet.... Linda has put together some cuts of some of my favorite Bo Bunny papers along with key lime and strawberry ribbons. Yummy! Deadline for all challenges is Saturday, May 16th at 12 noon. We'll announce winners the next day.


So, make a card and upload it to any gallery or your blog. Then, pop back here and post a comment with a link so we can see it. Unlike some of our other upcoming blog challenges, the winner of this challenge is not chosen randomly. We agonize over the entries and then choose the one that we feel is the best.

Need some inspiration? Check out this wonderful card made by my fellow design team member Dawn Knight. Dawn used Bo Bunny papers and one of my favorite Serendipity stamps. She colored the image with colored pencils and Gamsol - beautifully done, Dawn. And I love the Flowersoft on the potted blooms.

Melissa and Leah have also made some terrific samples as well. Be sure to visit their blogs and post a comment and you will be eligible for an additional mystery prize at the end of the Blog Roll. More details about that to come!
