Default How are your Christmas cards going?

I'm working on mine today trying to get them finished. I have 42 to make & have them all cut & stamped except for the inside. I hope to get them done today. So how are yours going?

I woke up around 3:30 am and decided to just get up and get busy (I went to bed early, around 9). I'm almost done with the 10 that I started early today, and I have about that many that I've already finished. I'll probably make another 10 later today (in a similar but slightly different design), after I read the Sunday paper, and be pretty much finished except for a few last minute ones that I'll hand-deliver. Most of mine that need to be mailed will go out tomorrow, along with some gifts.

The end (of holiday card-making for this year) is near, I can almost taste it!

This is the first year I've made mine and I'm happy with the results. They are simple, but I was able to get them done and mailed out a few days ago.

I finished and mailed them last week! I made four cards for my very special stamping friends using this stamp and design from Outlines rubber stamps:

http://www.outlinesrubberstamp.com/g...58&galItem=572

Only to find that I couldn't find a proper envelope, and when I made an envelope, the bling and Stickling started poking through. So I had to mail using a padded envelope!

Like the stamp/design wiggynine!

My cards are done and sent out last week. Didn't have too many as I have whittled my list down considerably.

Happy Holidays everyone!!

I was overly ambitious and decided to make all 70+ of my cards this year, starting in November. Then the kids and DH and I had the flu for about two weeks, so I got nothing done. Today, I want to get ALL the cards done. The insides are stamped, the envelopes are addressed, now I just need to cut some more pieces and stamp and assemble the front panels.

I forgot to say me & some friends did almost 200 nugget boxes (the 3 nugget cardstock kind) yesterday. Now they want to do 87 more. Hopefully I will still be in the spirit after that!

I did 82 criss cross cards. They were in the mail December 3. I am surprised because for over half of them my arm was in a sling from surgery! Not bragging just saying what happened. Someday I may get brave enough to put some in a gallery.

Wow I am so impressed with all of you guys doing 60, 70, 80 cards... amazing! I did about 20 total... but they are all detailed with coloring (you can check it out in my gallery), so still took me a decent amount of time. I can't even imagine doing even 50!! I will also be making a few extra Christmas cards to hand out to friends and family (not mailed) and also 25 favors for a Christmas party, so I'm not quite done yet

I did about 40 cards and put them in the mail. Then I had to make more because of people I forgot about. I don't think I will ever get done. Yuk!

I have 70 to make, not counting the ones I know I forgot , I am half done. I can only get about 10 duplicate cards finished in one day. I create one, then make 9 more. I think the first takes almost as long as the 9 do. I now have a couple of pretty good templates that I am using to create cards that are the same style, but different details. That is what the other 35-40 will be. I hope to have them in the mail Wednesday

I just finished 120, they are addressed, but still have to add return address and postage.

Reminder to self: Next year, simpler design, and begin earlier. Where have I heard that before?

To answer the original question, BAD!

Would you believe I haven't even started? I have been so busy, I just haven't had time. I guess I need to get off the computer and get started!

Finished and mailed out 80+ this last Wednesday. I've got two more to do then I should be done.

I've got to start earlier next year. I usually start in July at our monthly stamping group (it's a Christmas in July thing). I was still making cards this week.

Mine are finished and mailed. I made somewhere around 50 this year. Now, I have to concentrate on homemade gifts, wrapping and baking. I am SO ready to just relax already!!

Just finished mine today (52). Every year I do this, come up with a time intensive design and start late. I will start early next year..I will start early next year... Ok! Who am I kidding!
