Motherly Love Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for the badge winners of the Pretty Pastels Card Challenge!

It's time for a new card challenge!  And since Mother's Day will soon be here, we thought we'd give those of you who do create Mother's Day cards a chance to share them. BUT even if you don't create a card for Mother's Day we want to see what you create that represents "Motherly Love."  So...for this challenge, share your Mother's Day cards and/or share your card that depicts Motherly Love--a mom with a baby or children, animal moms with their little ones or maybe a character with other small creatures or pets they care for.  There are so many wonderful images out there for cardmaking that depict "motherly love." Let's see yours. 

Once again, our designers have created a wonderful variety of style and interpretation of the challenge to give you some great ideas and inspiration. Please visit their blog links (by their name) for more details about their card creation and leave some comment love while there. We'd really appreciate it and would love to know you stopped by.

We'd love to see your  MOTHERLY LOVE cards. Please read over our challenge requirements and then share your card in the linky at the end of this post. 

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  • No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4") so your card would fit in an envy (envelope) for mailing
  • Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  • No Back Linking--cards must be posted to your blog or an online album during the challenge dates. If it was posted online BEFORE the beginning of our challenge, it cannot be linked.
  • Entry must be for the current theme.
  • Cards Only--NO TAGS

Additional rules can be found under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top under our blog header.

Our Designers will be voting on the cards after the challenge ends and the winners will be announced by Wednesday morning  following the close of the challenge.. We will have one FIRST CLASS which is the card that receives the most votes from the Designers and considered the best overall card for the theme.  The Designers will also pick one card as their personal favorite for an IN THE MAILBOX badge. That means we may have up to 10 In the Mailbox cards for a challenge.  We decided to go with this fun method as each Designer has their own unique style and preference.  Each chosen may grab one of our fun badges for their blog! The badges for the challenge will be in the winners post following the close of the challenge after all the Designer votes are in.  The winners will also be announced on our Facebook Page, so come Like us so you'll know quickly if you are a winner. 

THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE--NO TAGS.  Entries not following our rules and not for the current challenge theme will be deleted without notice or comment. We accept any size/shape of card BUT all cards must be flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing (no thicker than 1/4") which means no lumpy, bumpy embellishments. Challenge ends Sunday, May 14th, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. Central Daylight Savings Time. 

Leave a comment and link your MOTHERLY LOVE card in the linky below. Thank you for sharing your card that is flat enough to mail in an envelope with us at Cards in Envy!  

Please use your FIRST name and LAST INITIAL for your inlinkz entry name.  

NOTE:  Your card for this challenge must clearly have the words Mom, Mother, Happy Mother's Day or a derivative of the greeting OR have an image of a "mom" on the card. For example: If your card has flowers only and does not have the word "Mom" or "Mother" etc on the front of the card, it cannot be entered for this challenge.  Please look at the CIE designers cards or contact me for more clarification if needed.   Cards linked that do not meet our challenge theme will be deleted.  Thank you.
