I shall try again this year. It is easy enough for me to make the cards, it's remembering to POST them that is the problem.

Since I make cards for both myself & various groups I'm saying 10 / month

Aha...I have not posted anything yet...too sick to sit at my craft table, but am on the mend. So, I've been setting up my links for posting each month, and guess what I've learned!!! I see you can post ahead into months that have not arrived! This helps in case you just have a card stuck in your head and it fits better later! Love it!~

Hi Imke,


Check out Ann's Post #2 and Post #70, back on page 1 & page 2 of this thread. Post #2 has the links to each monthly gallery; Post #70 has the list with a brief description of each month's challenge, and the keyword for each month!


Hope this helps you!

Oh yes Carlene, work on whatever months tickle your fancy and creativity! That's why I love each month challenge up for the year, work ahead, get ahead so no stress in December!! So sorry to hear you have been sick, is it the flu?

My number four son is sick along with my DH. DH is on the mend but son is still so sick, he got a bad blood nose today! All that blowing!


Liz, thank you for posting to Imke's question!

Okay, so what are you all doing with the ones you make that don't fit a section?
( just go with what ever month it is and say I did so many for that month?)

Place them in the month you did them, Stacy!

That will work and easy for everyone to keep track of how many they did that month!


Will have to pass the word on this!

for me I am so in the habit of typing CCCyear as a keyword it really makes me stop and think haha. ( made a print screen of the months theme's today at work though) so when I do fit one they will go into the right spots ( probably ) Thanks Ann

Thank you Ann...now I really do LOVE this challenge!!! In the past challenges have seemed to stymie my creative, because it makes me feel boxed in. I almost always make my card to give away for birthdays, anniversaries, get well, etc. and that also fit the person's who is going to receive it...personality, hobbies, etc. So, fitting a challenge seemed to stop me short...like running into a wall.

With this challenge if this month is a wreath and for some reason I'm thinking a Christmas critter...I can find the month it fits and just do it....I'm likin' it lots!

On being sick, thank you for asking...I'm still not up to par...coughing all the time...cough syrup isn't working all that well, losing sleep, etc. I don't think it's the flu, because I'm not running a fever (even though I felt like I was early on) and haven't had aches and pains, headaches, etc. Just a very bad head cold and cough, when I tried to sleep... also feeling very tired with no energy (and that could be caused by lack of sleep and coughing). I'm working on my 4th week, and it seems to be loosening up in my sinuses, but is still there, especially the coughing...now it's all the time up or laying down. Sure glad I'm retired...I used to get those cold bugs from the kids at school ALL the time. Enough of this...but I do hope your family and household are well and back to normal again soon!

Hi Claudia, so sorry you have to have surgery!! Ouch! Maybe you want to stamp a few images and bring them upstairs so you can work on stuff!

Very glad you will be joining us this year! Less stress in December is so needed!!
