Art Deco Diva-Karen Margotta wants to join this challenge also! Woot Woot! I'm posting this for her. Karen is willing to make 3 cards each month and if she can make more, then she'll go for it too! So, Art Deco Diva- Karen.

I am Dragonwold (total mistype when I started)


Well doesn't this sound like fun. I only need about 12 to 15 so if I do 1 or 2 a month I should be good.I do need accountability - sometimes kicks in the butt.

I'd like to join the challenge and look forward to being part of this fun bunch.

Well, I said to myself, you are in the Christmas spirit, stay ahead of the game and make all Christmas cards in the month of December for 2017!!

Plus, can't lift or place any strain on my shoulder so...color and craft! Slowly!!

Ahhh...so I chose to organize and you were good and following doctor's orders!!! How are you feeling? I know my shoulder kicked up a fuss if I tried to use the big shot...it was maybe 6 month s after the surgery before I could use the big shot again

Doctor says it is a pinched nerve not rotator cup as the chiropractor thought. Doc said right away that a rotator cup does not hurt up through the neck like what is happening to me.

Waiting to see on insurance now, they want to do a MRI before they shot me up with steroids!

Lynn,did you have a pinched nerve too? How long did it take to heal?


But no relief in sight, they have to get permission from the insurance company to proceed!!

I didn't know what mine was for a long time..they did a CT scan..the bottom of C5 had a bony growth almost the size of the disc..finally I got in for surgery...they opened the neck from the front... removed the disc..shaved off the growth..took a piece from my hip..cut it to size..out it between C5 and C6. Then stitched me up.. recovery about 6 months.

Before the surgery I wore a head master collar to put traction on the area to keep it more open

I'm signing up again for 2017. This is the best challenge to keep one organized. It didn't completely work in 2016 because I only got cards done through July, even if they were done in December. My new plan is to stay on top of it for 2017 and make 10 cards for each month -- DURING that month.

Getting cards done till July is great because you were further ahead than if you had not done any!! Yup thinking positive!

I'd like to join this group with a goal of 12 cards/month. Actually, I'd like to make a kit with all the components for 12 cards/month. This means all the card stock and patterned paper cut, images stamped and die cut, and any embellishments gathered. I attend a 3 day crafty get away in November and do my assembly then. I like to take 17 to 20 kits with me and this year I was frantically assembling them at the last moment. I'd like 2017 to be less stressful.

Hi Everyone. I am very new to this, but would like to create 4 cards a month. Not even sure if I am in the right spot to join! I love animals-especially animals, snow scenes, oh, and anything with the House Mouse designs!!!! While I am new to card-making, I have been an artist for 50+ years and do a lot of my own art on cards instead of stamping...mostly in watercolor!

I have never participated in any of the challenges and this sounds like a great one to start with. I definitely want a stress free December!! I'll start slow with 2 per month.

I got really behind this year and with all the house renovations I didn't have enough so had to buy some, even though I had a few left from last year. I think I need to aim for 15 a month. Some great themes - thanks folks and Happy Christmas

Just counted up my 2017 Christmas cards that I have been making all month long!! I have 87 cards made already!! I need about 150 cards!

Have a few more started on my work table that I need to finish!!


Come on everyone, combine one weekly challenge with one Christmas card challenge per month to help yourself get to your goals!!


How many of you were behind come December 2016??


You can do it! I like Lynn's idea that on the 25th of each month she stops and makes a holiday card!! A great idea to add to your stash and stay stress free come December!


Another thought - buy an extra book of stamps each month for your holiday cards instead of that big expense in December!!


Add your return address to your envelopes already, just one step further ahead for in December!!


Use all the holiday paper scrap pieces on your work space and make simple gift tags!


Stamp a bunch of Holiday sentiments already for the inside of your cards! Easy to embellish them and one more step out of the way.


Keep cs cut to the proper size for the inside of your cards on hand!! I add scor-tape to the back of these pieces and keep in my drawer next to were I am working, makes it easier to finish a card if you have the inside started in some manner!! I do this in white and in a off white.

You can do it Janine!! You have such gorgeous cards and you do them weekly!!


Maybe combine more weekly challenges with the Christmas card challenges!!
It should help a bit!!!

I'd like to sign up for 2 sets of Christmas cards each month. (I sell my cards and make sets of 24 of each design)
AdaliaDisa, aka Jo, 2 cards each month!
Thanks!
That's a fantastic plan Jo!! Welcome and glad you are back to card making!! Can't wait to see your designs!!
