I have finished my January cards!!!!! I apparently still have a bit of Christmas spirit lurking inside and couldn't resist doing my January cards with my new Elzybells Mouse Bauble stamp. You can see my card here: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=36080.

It would feel SO good to get my cards done BEFORE December! I was working like a mad woman and still didn't get as many done as I wanted. I'm in!

I think there's holiday spirit still lurking in most of us. I was making a card to go along with a gift basket on Christmas Eve moring. I liked it so much that I made more. So January Cards are done. And then I got my December order from a workshop, It's Snow Time. Had so much fun with it that my February and March cards are done as well. When I get a chance, probably this weekend, I'll get them downloaded so you can see.

I use IrfanView - it's a free, easy to use image editor. You just open your photo in the program, go to the image tab, choose resize and type in the size you'd like your photo to be! Here's the link: http://www.irfanview.com/

All you have to do is complete 10 Christmas cards every month up to and including November and you should have plenty of cards to send out for the holidays!!

You can join anytime during the year. The idea is NOT to stress. If you need to skip a month or two, that is perfectly fine. Remember, the whole idea behind this challenge is to make life easier. Trust me, I know how busy December can be, why not try to get one project, your holiday cards, all done by the end of November!

Make your cards any way you like - make 100 of the same card 10 at a time or make a different set of 10 each month or make each card completely different and unique. You decide, these are your cards. They should be how you want them to be. Then each month when you complete your 10 cards, upload your photos (use CCC08 in the title or keywords so that others can search) and post a message to the thread that will be set up for each month, or you can post it here. Just one suggestion, this year there was a little confusion because several of the months had more than one thread started. So before starting a new thread, just check to see if one has already been started.

As in incentive, There will be a small prize to the person who completes their cards first EACH MONTH. For each month you complete (before the end of the following month), your name will be put in a drawing for the "year end prize basket”. (so PM or email me your contact info so that I can have it in case you win!!!! My email address is [email protected])

If you'd like to donate stuff for prizes (small items you may have laying around, SU! or non-SU, even stuff you have made), I would really appreciate the help. Postage stamps would also be a great help. This is not a requirement to join this challenge. PM me, if you would like my address!


PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS NOT A SWAP!!!!
I was the lucky recipient of the "year end prize basket" and I have to say that it's full of WONDERFUL stuff! Thank you so much to those who donated to the gift basket. I'm looking forward to participating in the CCC in 2008!

I saw this last year and thought about joining, but had a newborn at the time, so I knew I would not be able to keep up with it.
But I am determined to participate this year.
Can't wait to get started.

I signed up for last year, but never completed any. I did start some for January and February - finished the Feb ones in December and used them. Turned my Jan ones into thank you cards and have them all ready to mail.

I am determined to do them each month through 2008, though! Count me in!

Yes, sign me up. I did it for 2007 but didn't do well keeping up but did get alot done and that helped. This year I will work harder to do the Jan thru Nov. Husband loves to be able to be the first to mail them out.

Hope all had a wonderful holiday

You don't. This is strictly a personal challenge for you to get your cards completed ahead of time. Think of it as a New Year's Resolution you would make.

The object of the challenge is to complete 10 cards per month. In the past, I have made 10 of the same card per month, different card designs each month. You can use any layout, any stamps, any supplies, any embellishments, etc. There are no restrictions.

If you wish to share (upload) your cards, please be sure to put CCC08 in the title or description so that anyone searching for cards in the challenge will easily find it.

Have fun with it!

I wasn't smart enough to do this last year and I ended up totally blowing off doing my cards altogether. So I'm definitely in!

Default I'll try (again)

I signed up last year (2007) and did only a handful of cards. However, I am going to get back on the horse, so to speak, and try it again! Hopefully I will have much better luck staying focused in '08!!!

Please add my name! After the stress of getting my Christmas cards done for this year, it would be wonderful to get them done early. Is it okay to do only 5 cards per month?

Please add me to the challenge, January - November. I resolve to do 10 cards each month in 2008 'cause I broke my 2007 resolution after 3 months but 30 cards were better than none!)

I'm in! I didn't join SCS until October this year and saw cards in the Christmas card challenge... I kept thinking, why didn't I know about this site sooner?????!!!!!!! I know I won't need this many cards, as I send out about 40 myself, but boy, I could sure use a few sets to sell at the mountain craft show I plan to be in next winter! YEAY!

Does Valentines Day qualify as a Holiday Card?

I always send to nieces, nephews, and children of close friends. I have to make 'em anyway so am just wondering if I can count these as my "10 Holiday Cards" for January.
