It's the last Friday in January, so that means it's time to sign up for the February Card Chain Challenge (CCC)!
For anyone new to the CCC, the basic idea is that you receive a fellow cardmaker's snail mail address, make her a card, and send it off. The next person on the list does the same thing with you, and so on. Each person makes a card for the person immediately above her in the chain, and the first person in the chain makes a card for the last person in the chain.
Everybody gets a hand-crafted card so everybody wins!
You also post the card you receive in the online gallery of your choice, and I will post these blog/gallery addresses on my blog along with a picture of the card. Everybody gets increased visibility and/or blog traffic, so everybody wins!
The whole process is fairly straightforward, so the chances of my screwing up are minimal. Everybody - except me - avoids administrative duties, so everybody wins!
You can use as many of the following options as you like, but you're only required to use one of them.
(You also don't need to use all of them.)
St. Patrick's Day OR
InLinkz sign-up ends at 11:59 p.m., EST, Thursday, February 3, 2011.
If this is your first CCC, please send your email and snail mail and a link to one of your online photo galleries to:
If you have any questions, please email me or leave a comment. Also please check out the FAQ post.
I hope you'll consider trying this. Feel free to ask those who've participated thus far: it's thrilling to open your mailbox and find a handmade card (especially when it's got foreign stamps on it)!
Don't forget to check out the January CCC results!
They will be posted on Tuesday, February 1, 2011.
