This challenge sounds doable and helpful, especially since I was down to the wire last year. I am going to go for 5 a month.

You just joined! The hostesses will read through and get you added to the list next time they are here. Just let them know how many cards you would like to make each month. When you have your cards made, upload a picture and post a link in the appropriate month's thread.

HERE is JANUARY's thread...

The other months are linked in post #2 of this master thread. If you need help uploading a card photo and making a link to it, there are great instructions attached to the first post as a pdf file. If you have any questions, just give a shout...we're all very helpful around here!!

Oops...I forgot to say, make sure to use the keyword CCC12 in your title or keywords section when you upload your cards so we can find them!

Yes, I think the pencil/Gamsol technique is fairly easy. It does take some practice to learn how to blend. I was amazed that I was able to stay within the lines (most of the time) with my Copics. I do usually use the smaller pointed end and a very light touch.

Hi Vikki Jo and Kelly,
I woudl like to sign up for the monthly challenge. 3 cards and 2 tags per month.

It is four years since I have sent out any cards worth mentioning. The lucky ones get cards I have made at VSN's etc and everyone else misses out, needless to say my Christmas card list has diminished dramaticly but I'm determined not to resort to bought ones.
Cheers

Oooo Toni your going to love this, Copic markers are my favourit colouring medium. I've been to a couple of classes and then did the course and qualified as a teacher (demonstrator). Getting your light source right is the key once you've got that it's really just practice.

Something that really helped me way way back before Copics really took off in Australia was the tutorials on Magnolialishus (hope that's the way you spell it) They got me started, my husband would say addicted!!
Cheers

As of Sunday morning January 8th, I've added everyone to the list so far... I think. If I have not responded to you on the thread welcoming you and asking for your snail mail... PLEASE PLEASE post again to make sure I see it. This head cold is making concentration hard. Thanks for your help.

I think I need to join too - I started in June 2011 and was still doing them right up to the wire. Please put me down for 12 a month - I should do more but I think that will challenge me enough. Thank you for a great idea to help us stay on track. Janine

A suggestion to you gals...if you address the envies every month as you do the cards you will have those all done in November too. If you really wanted to be proactive you could write and sign the cards, stuff the envies and address/stamp them. Imagine...all Christmas cards ready to mail in November! The forever stamps don't change, so no worry of them needing more postage. You might have a few stragglers to do at the end of the year but not nearly as many.

Spreads the cost of the stamps out too.
great idea! i am gonna try to mark this one!!

I am trying so hard to catch up today... it takes so very little to side track me.....
Clint got an email from SHutterfly for a free 8x8 book (because I share family pics on one of their sites)
so I worked on that.

Kelly, So sorry you are still fighting that head cold. I have a little understanding of what you're going through from past experience. Right now I'm suffering from allergies due to mountain cedar which is making my nose run and/or making me sneeze like crazy. Many of my friends are suffering too. We're supposed to get rain which I hope will calm down the pollen so we can stop sneezing / draining. Yes, it is difficult to concentrate/focus. Blecgh!

Let us know when/if you get a surgery date so we can write you funny messages and make you all giggly and goofy again!!

I guess I should put more space between subjects....

1. tell the trick to email database files
2. you asked if they were good meds...



Now... Surgery is January 31
I was told I would be out of commission for 6 weeks ore more.
No driving!
Wondering how card making is gonna work! LOL
I am getting stuff ready now for my March workshop.. talk about ahead of myself! LOL

Ever make Easter cards in January!? LOL

HERE is JANUARY's thread...

The other months are linked in post #2 of this master thread. If you need help uploading a card photo and making a link to it, there are great instructions attached to the first post as a pdf file. If you have any questions, just give a shout...we're all very helpful around here!!

Oops...I forgot to say, make sure to use the keyword CCC12 in your title or keywords section when you upload your cards so we can find them!
Everyone here is just so darned helpful! I love you girls!!

Yep.. what Jane said! LOL

I'm sitting here opening new tabs to respond .. then I come to a response.. yep that's it!
You ladies are all wonderful!

Always Playing with Paper: Merry Monday Challenge #1 Reminder and Mystery Guest Designer

If anyone knows of other blogs offering up Christmas card challenges, please post so we can all gain some new inspiration and ideas
Putting this one at the beginning! Thanks!

Oh my, you are really going to need prayers & encouragement. I hope you'll be able to get online while recovering. We would miss you so much!

I guess if we can make Christmas cards in July, you can make Easter cards in January.

Hmmm, I haven't tried (or seen) baby oil gel. I didn't like how plain baby oil worked. I just use odorless mineral spirits and like that the best. I'll have to look for some of that baby oil gel.

Hi everyone! I have set a personal monthly goal, and Christmas cards are included, so I thought this challenge would be great to join. I want to do at least 6 Christmas cards each month.
