For January I need; two birthday cards (done), two new baby cards and a January card for my secret sister. I hope to have time this weekend to get to them!

GarnetJ 12-29-2012 09:01 PM

Just happened to see this challenge tonight. Making a list and checking it twice...

GarnetJ 12-29-2012 09:09 PM

Okay, I checked. I need 4 birthday cards and 5 Anniversaries. Whew!

smadson 12-30-2012 03:14 PM

Here is first card I need for January. It is for my DH's sis. She turns 65! He asked me to make a funny card. I misunderstood the challenge and thought we were to CASE ourselves! LOL So I have 4 more cards for January: 3 bdays, and one wedding. So I will use it for one of those.
It feels good to be back in my craft room! All company gone, and Christmas decorations down, and boxes and plastic bags packed for the veterans pick up tomorrow. Feels all clean and nice.

For January, I need for sure 4 birthday cards. If I want to actually send cards to all my relatives this year then I need 12 birthday cards. 1 is made so far. Do we just post the challenge cards here or all the cards? What about the keyword?

<---------still figuring this out. :)

I only need 2 birthday cards for this month and they are both the last week. Here's my first one. I didn't case anyone, unless casing myself counts.

Here's the one I made today: HB Francine 2013 by grammatroll - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
This is the card I made last month and cased for the challenge: Erik's Birthday 2012 by grammatroll - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Zbear1 01-01-2013 11:22 PM

OK...I checked my list for January and I need 3 Birthdays and 2 Thinking of You cards. I already made 2 BD cards (I cased one of Clownmom's cards) and got the pics downloaded onto my computer, but it's 3:20 am and am just too tired at the moment to go upstairs into the craft room to get all the papers and stamps written down....I'll do it in the a.m. (later a.m.) !! I like this challenge to get all our cards done -- thank you Splitcoast Stampers !!

Zbear1 01-02-2013 09:20 AM

OK -- I finally got it done -- sorry I'm a little late, but it is here, FINALLY !! Here is one of the cased cards I made for the challenge -- AOCC2013_BD cased card by Zbear1 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I've already sent a few cards out for January 2013 as I had some very early birthdays, including 2 on Jan. 1st! But here are the first cards I've uploaded.

I'm going to try to do better posting cards as I make them. I just finished these this afternoon.

smadson 01-03-2013 12:00 PM

Here is my card Favorite Techie , for Sheri's challenge. So, I have made two cards so far, and I have thought of more I need. I need three more birthday cards and a wedding card yet!

I like the layout of both those cards.

grammatroll 01-04-2013 06:01 AM

Thanks, Garnet. I started with a mosaic stamp I found at Gina K. Designs, stamped the sentiments in the two panels, then added the paper. Of course, I stamped the mosaic onto the papers and cut the various shapes. I might use try this with Christmas papers for some of my cards this year.

Ksnurse 01-05-2013 06:04 AM

wow....finally got caught up here in this gallery...y'all are really rockin this month....I have mine started...hope to hide in the craft corner after church today....now that I have it all cleaned out and mostly reorganized....I'm anxious to see how handy it is to get to stuff....

Ksnurse 01-05-2013 01:07 PM

In Jan. I need 2 b-day cards for sisters...and then will make some for my stash....I'm also on a personal goal of using up stuff in the scrap box before buying or even cutting any more paper....cuz I refuse to buy a bigger bin for the scraps...here is my first one

Here is a card I made for a thank you (I need 6 of them). This was easy enough, I will make the rest like this one. I did it for the QFTD challenge too.

Here's a scenic card that I'll send to one of my friends who is going through a particularly stormy time in her life right now. For the inside I'll put a Scripture like Psalm 31:24 "Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in the LORD."

Val, I think you outdid yourself on that one.

smadson 01-07-2013 01:00 PM

Here is another Thank you. I used today's "Best of 2012 techniques" TLC challenge.

And I used "stash" on this one.

You're welcome, Val. I wasn't just being kind, either. That card blew me away. It's an awesome piece of artwork and should be framed.

Zbear1 01-08-2013 08:32 PM

I don't believe it - but I think this is the best thing I have ever done for myself was to join this challenge! I have all 3 cards made for the month and also I made 2 Thinking of You's...........wow!! I am happy!! This 2nd card was not a case but just a card I made for my cousin - Blue for Boy!! Nothing special just playing with the stickles (again) !!

Thanks for your kind words auntangie. I got this pattern from an on-line shop called stitching cards. Stitching Cards. Create beautiful handmade greetings cards with prick and stitch embroidery on paper patterns.
Another site I get from is Form-A-Lines Form-A-Lines stitching card patterns delivered by download
Happy shopping.

Me, too, more for my stash. :)

I usually don't add the sentiment to the outside of the card so I can utilize it for any occasion as needed.

Nancy, your links don't work.

Greywolf 01-10-2013 05:49 PM

I sent out three birthday cards today - all from my stash.

I need at least one sympathy card, a few get-well-after-surgery cards, and one more birthday. I have a more or less "free" day tomorrow so I hope to do some stamping.

yellowrose46 01-10-2013 06:05 PM

January is an easy month for me. I have/had three birthdays (cards all done and sent) and one anniversary for the 29th. I've also made a thank you card, need to make several more and I've also made a set of photo cards for my friend as a little gift.

OK -- Sheri, it feels great to have those cards done on time and ready to go (one is already gone)....and I needed two "Thinking of You's" -- They are both done ... I am so glad that I joined this challenge group -- and here is one of them that I finally got uploaded today -- AOCC2013_Thinking of You 1 by Zbear1 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
This is not a cased card - just something I've been wanting to try for awhile.
Since I got my new printer I could use my PagePlus program that I have that I used to make wedding invitations and favors with = so now I'm back to having fun with that one!!

Zbear1 01-10-2013 11:28 PM

OK...I still feel "awake" at 3:25 am....so I uploaded #2 Thinking of You card -- It almost looks a little "gawdy"....but then again it's growing on me....Hope you like it !!
