Well, you MIGHT kick yourself cause it's similar to a term you probably already know - VSN - Virtual Stamp Night

VSD - Virtual Stamp Day.

I'll be here all day chatting with everyone coming and going who wants to work on their cards/ tags/ gift boxes, etc.

If you can play all day, that's terrific! If you can only fit in an hour or two sometime during the day, every little bit helps.

Hope you'll join me.

Can I drop my goal to 5? I'm struggling to get 10 done, I think I'm Christmas carded out by January LOL Also do the cards all have to have stamping on them? I don't want to get in trouble posting the wrong thing.

A card is a card, Deb, and as long as you made it yourself, I don't think it matters whether it's stamped, or a photo card, or a tea bag fold or iris fold card, or whatever.....just as long as you made it yourself. What's everyone else's take on this?

It may be tacky, but at least one set of mine this year are going to have stickers on them just because they are in my stash and I'm not throwing them away.

Angie, I still have a box of stickers and use them occasionally! Sometimes the sticker has just the perfect picture for the look you are trying to capture.

It is your own personal goal.

How many do you need to send oout, divided by 10.

Kelly had a great idea... if you need 10 a month, do 2 a week (or 3 if there is only 4 weeks int he month)

Only 2 new ladies? Did I miss anyone? sorry!

I am tryign hard to hurry this morning.

Clint had a dentist appt this mornign that took HOURS!

then the drive was horrid! We had a snow storm last night and some roads aren't plowed yet, mine included. Saw an accident, not sure that was a good thing the cop was just standing there and the truck was upside down.
then finally got home only to find the grader stuck sideways on our road.
Clint went up to the neighbors to see if they can get something out to help him... then he is cutting the half wall down from behind my desk, so I can turn my desk around flat to the wall.

Anyhow.. uff da!

Gotta run. I will be back later to catch up!

I have several iris fold Christmas cards in my gallery. Here are links to a couple
Iris folded sparkle tree by yellowrose46 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers and
Addicted to Iris Folds by yellowrose46 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I have a book with iris fold patterns. there are ornaments and trees of two sizes and lots more (I haven't looked at the book for ages) If you are interested, I can scan some and e-mail them to you.
It takes a lot of time, but once you get started, it really is quite easy.

I need to do 10 a month but can't get motivated right now as I usually start them in June/July so I figure even 5 a month is a good head start

I'm trying to use one stamp for all of Jan's cards them a different stamp for Feb etc so I use all my stamps.

I was put on extended moderation on another group as I posed a card that didn't meet their 'rules' so I was worried about it.

I'll post my button card soon

In addition to may goal of 6 cards a month, my secondary challenge is to do all of my Christmas cards using only existing supplies. Is any one else a "hoarder"? I find some really cute things, buy them, and then don't want to use them because they are so cute!

That is totally my problem - I joined the Stamp to Spend (STS) group here - it has really helped my motivation! I am in the black so far! - I need to update my siggy since I spent most of the day yesterday cleaning my scrap room and finishing up a few cards.

I hear ya. I have found stuff I don't remember buying and have no clue why I bought it. I know it was for some long forgotten project. The other day I went through my stashes and pulled everything out that was Christmasy and put it in a rolling tote so I have to use it up before buyhing anything else.

I so agree with using your stash. I have so much in my stash that I could make cards for a very long time. So I think I will try to do that also. I would like to make cards from my stash all year. I did finish my January cards but will upload them tomorrow. I am at work right now anyways. I hope all are having a great Sunday. Kathy

Oh no you are not alone on that one. I could probable have my own sale. I am such a paper hound. I just love all the different colors and textures. I have one I like and then buy it then see others I like also. Of course I still have tons of it. Kathy

Internet has been so wonky all day! I was happy though to see SCS post on Face Book confirmed it wasn't just me having issues! LOL

LOL! I'm pretty sure this is how I ended up with a room full of stuff that I have had for years and had to join the S2S challenge this year.

I have a book with iris fold patterns. there are ornaments and trees of two sizes and lots more (I haven't looked at the book for ages) If you are interested, I can scan some and e-mail them to you.
It takes a lot of time, but once you get started, it really is quite easy.
Ina those are beautiful! If you are sharing patterns, would you mind sending them to me too?

JCI ladies.

If you've not been to my Stamp 2 Spend thread, please drop by for a visit (link in my siggy - and several other members' here)

I post a challenge every Monday to encourage you to use your stash. And you CAN overlap challenges. So if my CHALLENGE also lets you work on CCC11, MoJo Monday, ColorChallenge, etc... GO FOR IT! Just use your stuff!

Thanks for posting this - I wondered what the 'Stamp 2 Spend' thing was all about. Off to check it out!

Thanks

I worked on my January card last night. Looks cute. Just have to put it together which probably won't be until Wednesday, but then I'll have January done.

And, Kelly does have a good thing going and I'll be able to use my January card for the S2S challenge from last week also.
