The challenge to create 60 cards in one evening!

My incredibly talented upline Jacque challenged us to take one Simply Scrappin' kit & create 60 cards in one evening. We had the use of all her stamps, ribbons, inks & punches. The original concept created 60 cards but they were only 3x3" - we were all given a few extra sheets of 12x12" card stock & made 4x4" cards. I didn't want to use all my kit & thought if I used half making cards I'd still half to scrapbook with so 30 cards was my target, well I know I talk too much but I only created 8 (but did help Madeline Jacque's oldest daughter create 3) so I'm going to say my tally was 11, if you created 2 to 3 of each I would have easily made my 30 but really happy with what I did which follows:

PS I used Winter Bright as my kit
UPDATE: I've had a few queries as to how many were created & I replied in comments but not being seen there, so the most productive person (maybe the most quietiest) created 19 cards which is mammoth to me & so mass card making here we come!
