I am so impressed with those of you who make 5 or 6 (or more!) different cards every month! I have so much Christmas stuff that I probably SHOULD be doing that... but I just find it easier to make multiples of the came card.
I'm so grateful for this challenge - I now have 24 Christmas cards made, so if I can keep it up, it won't be such a frantic scramble in December to get everything done! I should start doing coordinating envelopes too... I get a little obsessive about things matching at Christmas and then spend way too much time on the envelopes!
It never stopped being chilly here. We had temps in the 70s one day now we're lucky to see 60s. Probably not a bad think with all the snow that needs to melt. This way it melts slower and gives the swollen rivers and creeks a chance to recede a little. I never did get to stamp yesterday. Maybe I'll get my July cards done in July. I was hoping to stay at least one month ahead but looks like the months caught up with me.
I completed my June cards. My goal was 10, I made 11.
I uploaded them, but I can't post a link! will try again
I will take better pics tomorrow (natural sunlight), and upload them individually.
I used up old supplies. Yea!!
Now I'm patiently waiting for my orders from Joanns & Flourishes. All of my inkpads are ruined from storing in an attic! The two inkpads I used for these cards literally fell apart (the glue that holds the pad to the base!) well, at least I have almost used up my old Christmas Jolees from 6 years ago LOL!
Really trying to avoid black, because I need a reinker and I don't have one...and really don't want to place a SU order JUST for a reinker. My demo is going to look tonight, I'm really hoping she has an extra one that I can buy off her....I don't know how much more I can do without black lol!
We don't here, but the mountains still have lots of snow. I just heard on the news yesterday that they don't know when they'll have the Going To The Sun highway in Glacier Park opened because of all the snow that still has to be removed. With the cool temperatures we've had in Montana, the snow is melting very slowly. Which is a good thing because we don't need any more flooding in the state. I am so tired of rain.
I am so glad I joined this challenge. It has given me the push I needed to get a start on some Christmas Cards. Thanks so much for the opportunity to play along!! I am kinda new to Splitcoast, and I just can't tell you how much fun I am having playing along with all the challenges! Here is my first attempt at Christmas cards, I have made loads of other types of cards, but not Christmas.
I hope I am play along with this challenge correctly (I am making duplicates of the same cards) If I am doing this wrong can someone please let me know? Here is three more cards I made for the Christmas Challenge for June. That makes 5 for me and I think that 5 was my monthly goal. Now that I am in the Christmas mode, I'm not sure I will be able to stop at five LOL!
Lisa, I always make 5 of the same for each month. If you make more than your goal, you can use them for the next months. It's ok to get ahead of yourself. In fact, it's nice to get ahead in case you have a month or two you won't be able to stamp. You're cards are beautiful.
