1. Make sure your cards fit envelopes that can be bought ie; C6 or DL (these are the post office prefered sizes too, in Australia) it is so time consumming to have to make the envelopes as well.

2. Completely finish your card with your insert and or inside greeting

3. Make sure you sign the back of your card (I'm going to try and do all of this before I upload)

4. Limit the embellishments if you are posting your cards. I love bows buttons and bling but it can become quite expensive to post these cards.

5. The most important of all is have fun, fun, fun but don't backlog I just never cought up and didn't get Octobers or Novembers done.

Cheers
This is also my goal in 2013! I had around 60 cards to make insides and to choose who was getting what card because I made so many different ones.

Lesson learned. I get restless creating the same card so I make a lot of different ones but I am going to make 2 changes:

1) inside must be made at same time. (I am trying to do that for ALL the cards I create...I am on a DT too..and sometimes I just rush from one project to another. INSIDE must be done !)

2) I am going to put a note paper inside Christmas box and write who I am thinking that card is for right now. OF course I might change it, Will do a lot of Nov. cards that are special etc....but I can at least START a bit of a list.

3) I need a nativity stamp. I Love to make ALL kinds of Christmas cards but I would like a few more Nativity themed ones for 2013....so I am on the look out for a stamp that moves me!!!
Kind of proud of me! I made my first Christmas card today...and I made the inside...and put the name of who I think it's going to go to on a piece of paper in the box!

i'd like to play too!! i send out about 125 photo-cards a year and am on the fence about doing handmade this year. but i figure if i have them made then at least i will have the option!!

let's see... that means i need to make 12 cards a month (jan-nov) so i can get my cards out on time.

please put me down for 12 cards a month!!

Gosh, I did this several years ago and it was so helpful--and I realized it when I was struggling to get my cards done and in the mail on December 22! Ha! But, with little sleep, I was able to get them done!

I typically do all the same design for everyone on my list so I hope that's okay. Between my cards for the mail, gift card holders and gift tags, I need to do 10 items a month. So, I'd like to join, please.

Thank you!

Hi. I would like to join too please. I am TERRIBLE about getting any cards in the mail, and want to do better this year! So, let's start with 4 per month. Can they be tags/gift card holders too? I'm excited to get started!

I'm having so much making my cards early & my friends think I'm nuts but then I won't have to stress down the road. Thanks for a wonderful challenge.

I've been looking through all my quilt books to make the perfect card for the June challenge which is Debbie (grammatroll) & I think I have an idea.

Thanks. I'm thinking of working on a few months tonight...I don't have any quilting projects at the moment so it's the right time.

I'm having so much fun getting my cards done, I'm probably going to work on my quilt one tomorrow night since my girls have a few friends coming over for a sleepover so they will be busy as I will be busy too.

I do end up sending out handmade cards every year but it is a mad dash come Nov./Dec. I'd like to motivate myself to get them done earlier this year. I'll sign up for 4 cards per month.

What a great challenge!
Erin.

Great friend! Awesome finds!!!!

Hi, vikkijo! Are things getting fixed around your place? You got the bad things out of the way for the year, right? It just has to get better for you.

Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand and Old Olive
So I asked more about that M. then I got into only that kind of card ...pinks, blues and greens were the only thing I used for almost a year! Terrible I know!!!
Wish I had kept pics of some of them.


Augusts Birth Stone is the Peridot (pale green) in case anyone wants to know
the most common color for a August Wedding is shades of Yellow or Orange

I was wondering where you'd gone off to.


Hope all is well, good to see you back!


yay to having TOO MANY

If you are all caught up and have no problems with your creative juices it's an extra card (or more if you choose )




or if you are stuck on what you should make for a month, then it's an 'unblocker'

I couldn't seem to get a grip on your ID name...then I got it! Too cute!!!
a lady that I worked with didn't have email and her dd made one for her, she said what do you want for a user name?
her mom said "I don't know, my minds a blank"
the dd took that as ' my minds a blank" was her answer!
that's cute too!


I love the cutesy names like that!

Not showing them is okay since there's no score keeping, getting the lovin's is what posting is for!

I guess the first think I have to do is set up a gallery and then I have to figure out how to post pictures. Oh well, at least I have to the end of January for that. I'm really looking forward to this!!!


Ditto on all of what you've heard already! LOL


I have a step by step tutorial on the first post for uploading too

Dasher with Lovely As A Tree!

Joining the challenge was the best thing ever! I didn't know what to do with myself after Thanksgiving because all my cards were made! I actually got a chance to see my family. In past years I would be in my craft room making cards as cards came in. I refused to buy any.
Thank you so much Christmas Card Challenge Team! You are the BEST!
I had to baby roof my house, and since we never have company i had taken over the living room as my craft area, well DD and DS2 were coming home for Christmas and Carrie was bringing the grand-baby!
No crafting at all for me all of December

I was so worried about going over my internet usage again and I knew Carrie would want to Skype with her hubby while she was here with the baby... I avoided the internet most of December.
Plus I really had to work on baby proofing.. I didn't do so hot on the one at all! Man can he find things to get into. I tried hard to upload a video on my blog of his first steps! I got to see them before his mom and dad! WooWhoo


Only 2 steps, but still! Since they've been home he is now really walking!

1. Make sure your cards fit envelopes that can be bought ie; C6 or DL (these are the post office prefered sizes too, in Australia) it is so time consumming to have to make the envelopes as well.
I had no idea there were so many different sizes out there! Here is in the US the common is an A2 (fits the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cards) what isC6 & DL dimensions?
2. Completely finish your card with your insert and or inside greetingMaybe a card isn't complete till the innards are in? LOL

3. Make sure you sign the back of your card (I'm going to try and do all of this before I upload)
I do not do this every year I tell myself to do it, and I have such wonderful intentions of buying one of those cool personalized stamps

4. Limit the embellishments if you are posting your cards. I love bows buttons and bling but it can become quite expensive to post these cards.
Oh, and how!

5. The most important of all is have fun, fun, fun but don't backlog I just never cought up and didn't get Octobers or Novembers done.

Cheers
Isn't every time we get inky fun?




I even got grand baby MJ inky!

Serious understatement!


Water has been froze every day last month (no biggy takes 5 minutes to thaw out)


Kids came home the 21st, for 10 days
oldest Carrie
her baby MJ
youngest Andy


then my middle Child Joe who lives 30 miles from here got into a drama lovin' gf vs sister argument


then Joe's car broke down so i gave his gf a ride to work twice, my car broke down the 3rd trip.
grrr


that was Christmas Eve, fixed mine the Wednesday after,


went to town... tranny went out
grrrr


Josh (step son) gave the kids a ride to the airport new years Eve.
We got back here and the water froze again... got that going and I could hear something like water running. Sure enough the water line burst somewhere inside the floor under the bathroom


ugh!


I had no clue which breaker was for the water pump so I flipped all of them


somehow that did something to our furnace! it would not come back on when I got the breakers figured out


Well that was New Years Eve so there was no one to call


Oh have I mentioned Verizon internet is too expensive? It is not unlimited so gallery gazing and skyping with MJ kept putting me over, that's $100 more a month.


No more surgeries planned..but I have an appt for an EMG this week.
