Challenge #33 Moms and Dads

Guy cards can be tricky, but the ladies who took our challenge last month did a wonderful job! The winner for Challenge #32 was #8, Jennifer B., with this cool card idea:

Jennifer used a Raisin Boat set called Under Construction. What a perfect card for this time of year -- "Pothole Season."

Congratulations, Jennifer, you're "on the road" to a free Raisin Boat stamp set of your choice! Please email with the name and item number of your set selection, as well as your mailing address. (To view your stamp set options, go to, click on the Products tab, and click on any category or the catalog link.)

Our challenge this month is "Moms and Dads."  This will help you to get your Mother's and Father's Day cards made, or maybe you want to do a journal page about your mom or dad. The challenge is never limited to cards, and it's also not limited to your mom and/or dad. You can also celebrate and honor someone who is like a parent or role model to you, or even your children who have become parents themselves.

Use any set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps), but if you DO use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice! You can enter as often as you like.

Remember, you can either buy  OR rent Raisin Boat sets -- no guilt in using a set for just one project, such as this challenge. We have an amazing collection of stamps and many that can be used for this theme.

Linda used Raisin Boat sets Springtime Love and Formal Phrases
to create Mother's Day cards for her daughter-in-laws.

The set Marvelous Mom is, well, marvelous for Mother's Day greetings -- filled with both short and longer verses celebrating and showing gratitude for the many things moms do for us. See supplies here.

This greeting also features a Marvelous Mom saying, as well as beautiful spring florals from Growing Love. See supplies here.

 You can also tell Mom how you feel about her with our All About You set!
See supplies here.

All About You also works for the dads out there. Add a little 3D Stamp Paint to our Clock embossing folder, and you can thank Dad for all of the "times" he has been there for you. 
See supplies here.

Tell Dad he's the best with our Nailed It set. Again, 3D Stamp Paint brushes up the Ruler embossing folder. See supplies here.

Any dad of a daughter can relate to and appreciate this humorous card, made with
Dad's Den. See all supplies here.

When you're paying tribute to dad, it's extra special if you also recognize his hobbies. Camo Man is perfect for dads who like to hunt or just enjoy the outdoors.See all supplies here.
