Welcome to the 2015 June Card Chain Challenge Reveal!
I don't know about the rest of y'all, but June flew by for me! I apologize for not having this up at the crack of dawn, but I've been very busy dealing with my father's Medicaid. (Yes, he's finally been accepted and I hope that is the end of that particular bureaucratic nightmare!) Which is definitely a good thing since he was just diagnosed with lung cancer. Not to worry too much, though! The cancer was discovered early (Stage One) and will probably require the minimal amount of radiation therapy. We're both feeling quite optimistic!
Alright, onto the business at hand!!!
We have a new participant this month - everybody welcome Christy in California - bringing our number of participants to 36, all who were required to use at least one of the following options:
One of the following themes: – Patriotism or Sports or Friendship
One of the following products: Bling!Who Sent What To Whom
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! Go here for past Chains.
