Default I've stamped 167 cards in one week.

167 cards in one week! From Saturday to Saturday, I've spent every spare (and some not really spare but borrowed) moment in my craft room. I never wanted to sort out the retired SU colors from my card stock or ink pads but finally decided it was time. And now I want them gone - out of sight - no longer requiring storage space. I've been using mostly only the retired colors and have completed 167 cards. I think I have stamper's elbow --- seriously! Stampers elbow!!

Holy Smokes!!! What are you going to do with all of those cards?
And stamper's elbow is for real, I had an inflamed elbow last January after making a bunch of SWAPS in a few days.

Yes, you are an over-achiever this week. I hope you got a photo of the whole group of them on a table or something. Good for you!

I will use most of the cards as BRAKS and send some to the soldiers over-seas. The thought of posting them all any time soon sounds more daunting to me than making them. The idea of putting one of each style on a table and posting them all together is a good one. Hopefully I can get something up soon.

It is nice to know I'm not crazy - I have epicondylitis!

Holy smokes that's a lot of cards. What do you plan to do with them? And you know this thread is no good without pictures. We must have pictures.

Congrats on your achievement in not only card making but to "use it up".

Yikes! I didn't do the math when it comes to mailing but I plan to send some in bunches so hopefully that will help.

One thing that will hold up my posting is the fact that I CASED a lot of the cards. It was necessary so that I could create quickly instead of sitting around for hours trying to figure out a design - my typical MO. I never used exactly the same colors or stamp set but I didn't take the time to write down who I was copying so I don't feel right about posting some of the cards. I'm going to try and find some of the original designs but am not having a lot of luck. I have a tendancy to search by the color of cards stock then pick a random page - 376 - 498 - it makes it much more difficult to go back to find a card.

Good job lady. I have tendon injury on both hands but that doesn't mean I stop stamping. Just have to be careful not to over do it.
