So the 3rd challenge is still going on at Clearly iStamp until 7 pm (central time zone).

Challenge #3: Pick a Holiday…..Any Holiday!
You can do a traditional holiday (Christmas, Halloween, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc) or you could one that is not so traditional. I love looking up all the different fun off the wall Holidays (which some people think today is one….but we won’t listen to them!) that we COULD celebrate! So I have listed a few I found for May and June that I thought would make a great card.

May is: National BBQ Month, Bike Month and Hamburger Month!
5/6 (Monday) – National Nurses Day
5/7 – National Teachers Day
5/12 – Mother’s Day
5/13 – Frog Jumping Day
5/15 – National Choc Chip Day (YUM)
5/16 – Love a Tree Day
5/20 – Pick Strawberries Day

June is: National Candy Month, Dairy Month, National Adopt a Cat Month and National Fresh Fruit & Vegetables Month!
6/8 – Best Friends Day
6/18 – Go Fishing Day
6/23 – National Pink Day

Happy Mothers Day

I went with the traditional holiday – Mother’s Day. Only because I have several orders I still need to finish and Mother’s Day is NEXT SUNDAY (in the U.S.)!!!
