Yay! Thank you Ann. This is a lot work, but I appreciate it.
I plan on 5 a month for all 12 months. I have done 54 for this year all mailed or waiting to go out. Already thought of three more! I thought I was done.

I will join this year. The last time I did this, I only met my goals up until May, but I did not send cards for the last 3 years. This year I am sending cards and ran out of handcrafted ones, so am making photo cards and using some commercial cards.
My goal for 2020 is 5 cards/month.

Thanks, Ann, for organizing the CCC again! Great list of themes and techniques!! I will commit to my usual quota of 10 per month. Meanwhile I'm madly playing catch-up as I sold almost all my cards at my fundraiser in November so am now making what I need to mail out!!

Default re: 2020 Christmas Card Challenge....

I have been lurking the past year, as I had to move my mom in w/us and had to get a good routine down for her care. But i want to join in this year. Please sign me up for 2 cards a month, probably will end up doing more but I know I can at least get 2 done per month for sure. Glad to be able to get back involved..... Merry Christmas to all...

We would love to see your cards plesae post them.

It is not a requirement of the Christmas Card Challenge that you follow the suggested monthly theme. Just post each month whatever you make.

The point of this group is to make Christmas cards throughout the year so you have them by the time you want to send them out.

Glad to see you are committing to 2 a month for 2020.
Happy Stampin'!

Cards by Kathy (Kathy). What great inspiration to make a ton of cards! But I think I will try for 2 a month and, hopefully, make more!

I can't imagine why anyone would want to make Christmas cards year 'round. If it's all about "stress", make them in October...at least it's close to the Holiday season. Or make fewer cards.... Creating a Christmas card in January - September is repugnant...to me. Making my cards in November is part of my season tradition and I look forward to it (usually)! Christmas has lost much of it's true meaning by being a year round marketing event... just so done with all that.

Well, we love doing them all year long! That's why we come here! And I've been using the themes a lot this time. They spark ideas. I can still keep Christ in my Christmas in other ways. I'm sure he doesn't mind that I got a head start so I could remember more people at Christmas.

To fulfill my quota of all the cards I WANT to do would mean doing at least 9 cards per month. To fulfill just my family cards and local friends, I would have to do 5 cards per month!!!

Since I have never even managed to get 2 done per month in the 3 or 4 years I've played...that would be a CHALLENGE! So, I'm going to challenge myself to do 5 and push and push and push to try for more!

Keep tapping me on the shoulder every month Ann. Chide me...tell me I'm slipping! Send a slap aside the head, a nudge in to booty...whatever you can think of will help! LOL

Love the challenges, Ann...they sound like lots of fun!

Thank you Ann for organizing this challenge and for the inspiration to get Christmas cards done early, or at least on time. I've spent the last few years making cards after Christmas for that Christmas!! I'll set a goal of 2 per month knowing there will be other Christmas challenges along the way.

Thanks Ann for organising this, last year was my most productive yet! I'll stick with the four a month, I find having to do 5 seems much more difficult, even though I do it sometimes!

I don't send out a lot of cards, probably around 24 a year. So, I'm going for two a month. Thanks, Ann for the great themes.

I know there are probably many who feel like you and would rather do them all in a month or two closer to Christmas. Although I did not make a committment to make a certain number of cards last year, I did make it a point to do at least one of the 5 or 6 challenges I do a week as a Christmas card. I do not like making more than one card of any kind, because rote copying one card just gets boring for me. So, I am glad that Ann provides this challenge as a way to keep up on a reasonable routine and most of my cards are made and ready to address by Thanksgiving. I am semi-retired so I have more time in my stamp room than most, and the older I get the faster time seems to be passing.

Ann, I hope to do 6 a week although some of those may fit other challenge criteria, so I appreciate the freedom you are offering with not having to always follow the monthly theme. Thanks, for organizing this, and I do find it a fun way that is very helpful in getting my mojo going.

Some of us have other reasons to make them all year. I hold a fundraiser every November to raise money for the therapeutic riding for kids with disabilities that I volunteer with, and I make 100 Christmas cards to sell at that, and three of my crafty friends each make 40 Christmas cards to donate to my sale. So between those 100 cards and the ones I need for me to mail out, I really need to make them throughout the year!

So this challenge really helps me get them done. So grateful to Ann for keeping it going!

I wrote 200 cards this year, posting many and hand delivering others - I could not do this if i didn't start early. I like the discipline of this challenge - thank you Ann

Bless you, Ann, for organizing and leading this. I made more cards in 2019 my first year here than any other year. Sign me up again. Going to try for 6-8 cards a month, but I'll be happy with whatever I actually make, XOX.

Hi, it's been a couple of years since I joined this challenge, I can see a few familiar names still here This past year was the first for many that I didn't make Christmas cards all year and so sadly my stash was small and I hardly sent any out. I also realised how much I missed enjoying my Christmas card making all year!
So just before 2020 begins I am going to plan on 3 cards per month!
Thanks for the monthly inspirations. Look forward to seeing all the cards.

Ladywolf here, Jody. I've never been one for making them early, usually scramble in November. I plan, purchase supplies & make 20 in about 3 weeks. By joining this I hope to get 2 done each month, but even one a month would give me a major head start. Now I have to find room for keeping the Christmas stamps out all year and not sitting on the corner of my table; since I usually pack them away they have no home in my supply drawers.
