Hey everyone!

I've decided to continue for another year. I'm determined to get cards made/ mailed this year and I'm taking a slightly different approach.


Here's the intro:


How many times have you started your day with, ‘today is______ ‘s birthday. I wish I’d remembered to send a card.’ Or are you scrambling last minute to ‘just get one made’?


With the All Occasion Card Challenge, you can put all that behind you!
Each month… around the 20th, we’ll remind you to look at your card recipient list for the coming month.

WHO: Everyone that needs cards for b-days, anniversaries, get well....you know-anything.

WHAT: A way to get those card needs met ahead of time so you aren't scrambling at midnight to finish before next days event...(yeah, I know I've seen you there with me) There is no score keeping here!

It's all for you and helping you stay motivated. Just look ahead to coming month and see what you need. then challenge yourself to get them done using our challenges - or not. some months you may need 10 b-day cards and the next month none. whatever you need for coming month is what you do. For instance; some months I don't have any events and plan to do cards for the stash that I have trouble making at last minute like get well and sympathy cards.

WHY:To relieve stress! This way you’ll have cards for all your events made ahead!! We all know how busy life can be, so why not try to get your cards all done by the end of current month instead of night before! Remember, the whole idea behind this challenge is to make your life easier. we can all use that, right?

WHERE: First upload to your gallery then post a link in the designated thread.
Please use the KEYWORD listed in the first post of each month (You'll find a link to those threads in Post #2) so that others can search for your cards! Please use only the thread that I start for each month or you might be missed, and we want y'all to get plenty of lovin for being such good overachievers.

To attach a link here, when the page you want us to go see is open, go to the address bar and 'copy the whole thing' then go to where you want it seen and paste it in the post box. If you need instructions for this check the attached PDF file drawn up by Vikki or PM me for further assistance.

WHEN: The whole month! There is no 'deadline' for getting your monthly cards done. This is just a motivational challenge to help you!

HOW: Just post a reply to this thread saying that you want to join and then start creating! Make your cards any way you like. Any tools, toys, gadgets, embellishments, etc...you decide- after all, these are YOUR cards.


Remember: with postal changes, mail may take a bit longer. Mailing within the first week of the month will help insure they have their card in plenty of time to enjoy it. Obviously, if their occasion is within that first week, you’ll want to mail earlier.

CHALLENGES:
There will be a challenge posted once a month. It will be posted in the first post of each separate month. A link to that thread will post here in the main thread. You may use the challenge, or not, in your card designs. They are just to get the mojo going.

POSTING YOUR CARDS:
Because this is a challenge group, it is encouraged that you post a link to your gallery where everyone can leave you LOVE, in the appropriate thread for each month.

NEW THIS YEAR!

I think one of the things that gets me is I don't LOOK at my card list. I made that card box last year but then the day job took over and I never even looked.


So I'm adding to the challenge this year.


Around the 20th of each month I'll post a reminder in this main thread for you to
post....


# of Birthday
# of Anniversary


cards you need for the coming month.
So this week, I'd like you to post how many of each you need for January. Then on the 20th of January, we'll be looking ahead to February... etc.


Who's with me?

JANUARY


FEBRUARY


MARCH


APRIL


MAY


JUNE


JULY


AUGUST


SEPTEMBER


OCTOBER


NOVEMBER


DECEMBER

I am in, Kelly! Thanks for staring it!

I need two special birthday cards for January! Already made one for DGS, but need one for DD. Still thinking what it will be!
I haven’t looked at my church birthday calendar yet!

Girls, I will get the threads set up tomorrow. I spent all day today working on a YouTube upload that didn't want to cooperate. And a nap came early in my day. LOL

They say what you do on the first day of a New Year sets the guide for the whole year. If that's true - I'm going to be planning! LOL


See you next year!

Fashionably late is better than not at all... or 'the thought that counts' LOL

HI Kathy.
That's fine... but why do I think that's a long list in itself? LOL

I think I want to try this challenge this year. I start the year well and then fizzle out, hopefully this will help avert that from happening.

Welcome, Catherine!


I'm suggesting everyone post in the monthly thread what they need for that month. Putting it out there for the world to see LOL


I happened to think I don't have the monthly tabs listed in the first post. I will fix that tomorrow. Right now I have a kitty crying that it is time for bed or she wants out of the bedroom.. one or the other.

I am in!

I have January done, addressed, stamped and waiting. Some are mailed, but you know what I mean. LOL

I made a perpetual calendar that hangs next to my desk. It is a normal size calendar, but it has birthdays listed instead of actual calendar pages.



Then I have a book on the desk of my SCS family birthdays and what not.

Hi Kelly, I would like to join in this year and play. Unfortunately most of my friends now don't send cards but I like to keep the tradition going. I do, however, make thank you, get well and sympathy cards for my local golf club and try and make a few each month when I have time.

This month I only needed 3 birthday cards and have posted them against other challenges. I do need a couple in February and will need to make one of those soon to mail. I also have 5 card boxes that I need to cover this year and will put cards in them as gifts. I need motivating lol


Thank you for the challenge, albeit my numbers are low compared to others. Happy day
