All Year Long Christmas Card Challenge

I've been enjoying a challenge made by Alz to gradually make as many cards that I need for Christmas throughout the year, It is going to be great if I can keep it up. I am making a dozen a month. This way I should be able to send a handmade card to each and every person on my list. That is something I have NEVER achieved before! I hope it happens. Knowing me, things do get in the way of good intentions, especially when it comes to card making...

Thank you, Alz, for making this challenge and I am already grateful fro the two dozen cards I have stored away :)

Here's a peek at some of the cards I made last week and today with a green and silver theme:

Fun Banner Cards

It was fun to make these little 'thank you' cards for my Stamp Club ladies tonight.
I used a scallop circle as a template to make the clouds. Aren't they pretty?
I got the idea from a fellow stamper, Jane Blakeley. I'll list all the items I used so you can have a play too. The clouds are fun to make :)

Supply List: (mostly from Sale-A-Bration)
Whisper White and either Pool Party, Lucky Limeade or Tangerine Tango cardstock base
Everyday Enchantment designer series paper & ribbon
Fresh Vintage and Outlined Occasions stamp sets
Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Tangerine Tango inks
Scallop Circle punch (to make template for clouds), ½” circle and Petite Pennants Punches
