Hi Everyone I just wanted to invite you all to a challenge I am having. Yes, I am starting another challenge before my last one is ended. This one is for my mom's 65th Birthday! I would love for you to make a card or something for my mom's birthday, she would really enjoy it, some of you know her from some of my videos and she just gets tickled pink at the awesome comments my subscribers give us. This would really make her birthday special.

Her birthday is December 9th and I would like them by dec 5th. Her fav color is purple and teal and she loves animal print. She is very easy to please. She lives in Florida part of the year and loves palm trees and things like that too.

I will pick a winner by random from all the entries, the only way to enter is to send a card or project. I will also make a video showing every thing sent in and a link to a video or blog or where ever you want me to promote for you.

I have been collecting lots of stuff for the prize, just got back from Michaels today with a big haul, video will be on my vlog channel soon. My mom also watches those videos so I can not mention it.

The video will be after her birthday, I will also try to record her opening them too.

I will give you my address, you can address my name or hers, if you use her name I will not open any of it. If you address my name I will open and give to her.

Her name
Suzette Boldwin
My Name
Melody Lane
Address
668 N. Convent St.
Bourbonnais, IL 60901

I am posting here and not on my blog because she reads my blog, or at least will click on the ads for me.

You are also welcome to email me any questions.

I will try this; can't make a promise, but I do try to follow through. You have given us a good window of time to complete this project.....and, I do think it would be fun to see the reactions your mom has in opening the cards. What fun.

I love that you have given us some information up-front on your mom. Further, does she have any interests that are near and dear to her heart? Purple and teal? That's a fun start!

I will be sending one in too and I would suggest everyone else do the same. I wish someone would have done this for my birthday as it is so special to get cards.

Recently I had surgery and have received 25 cards wishing me well and what a blessing that was to get.

Let's do our best to make Suzette feel really special this birthday!

Thank You so much! We don't celebrate our birthdays much and did not do anything for her 60th birthday so I want to make it up to her this year. This will be a surprize she will like that so many are thinking of her on her birthday.

No, she is not a crafter. She has been in some of my videos shopping with me and putting butterflies on her wall for her. Everyone just loves her in my videos, she is a lot of fun and is always laughing. She really needs a special birthday.

So.....she must love butterflies, too! Snowmen and butterflies; great combination! LOL.

I went to Joann's (had to take a little elderly lady to her eye appointment 45-min. drive away, on Thursday) and saw this ribbon that screamed out at me and thought of your post and what your mom liked. However, now that I see what I had in my mind was not what I bought, not sure if it will work. I just saw "animal print" in your first post.....does something that looks like it came from Africa work? LOL. I'm calling it "leopard" print! I guess that would qualify, huh?

Just messin' with you here!

That was really fun, Melody! At first, I wondered why my card hadn't made it there, but I knew it did, because you had listed my name on your "thank you" that I saw yesterday. I didn't know what to think......then, your mom had my card in her hand. It looked a lot better, to me, on your video than it did "live"! Ha,ha!

You did a great job with the video; I need to take time to see more of your instructional ones. There's never enough time in the day, is there?

I was amazed at all the cards your mom got and you could tell she was, too. You and your mom DO look a lot alike and have the same mannerisms. I hope my daughter is told that someday; although, she might not like it!

TFS your mom's special day with us.
