We had fewer participants this time, bu that's to be expected in the summer. And even though we had less cards, there was nothing "less" about their quality!
The countries represented this time were: Canada, Croatia, Denmark, England, Germany, , Indonesia, Ireland, Mauritius, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, (NEW!!!) Slovenia, (NEW!!!) Switzerland, and the United States! Past participants have hailed from Australia, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, and Japan. (As you can see, we added a "P" country to our alphabet, so now it looks like we only need to get some countries that begin with K, L, O, Q, R, T, U, V, W, X, Y, and Z to keep up with our alphabet list!)
And since we added three more countries to the list, it means we only have 174 countries to go before we have total global participation!!! (If you're new to the Card Chain Challenge ("CCC") this is an event where everybody wins. Basically, you make a card for the person above you on the chain and you receive a card from the person below you on the chain. It's a personalized swap, sort of, and it's a ton of fun! Go here for past Chains and here to read the Guidelines.)June had the following challenge options (you could use as many of the following options as you wanted, but you were only required to use one of them):
And here they are... the June CCC's!!!
