Hello and welcome to the 2015 March Card Chain Challenge Reveal!
We had 24 participants in this month's exchange, and some of them were first-timers or were returning after a hiatus, so I'd like to extend a big ol' welcome to Annick, Jutta, and Oreek!!!
Our cardmakers had the following challenge options (they could use as many of them as they wanted but were only required to use one):
One of the following themes: Easter or Arbor Day/Trees or Friends
One of the following products/techniques: stencils
All of our artists created masterpieces, so check out the March, 2014, CCC cards!!!
And that brings us full circle! Thank you, everyone, for sharing your artistic talent and doing your part for global relations!

(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!
