It's time for the February Card Chain Challenge (CCC)! If this seems a little bit quick, it's because I want to get the CCC's synchronized and on a permanent schedule. So I'm shooting for each sign up being on or about the last Friday of the preceding month. Since today is the last Friday in January, it's time to announce February's CCC.
Last month we had participants again from Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, and the United States. We had two new countries make their debut this month - give a big cheer for Switzerland and Mauritius! If we add in past participating countries Croatia, Denmark and Japan, we've had 12 countries represented thus far!
(My goal is to try to get a new country represented every month, so put the word out!)For anyone new to the CCC, the basic idea is that you receive a fellow cardmaker's
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!
3 Challenge Options
You can use as many of the following options as you like, but you're only required to use one of them.
Citron, Cucumber, Violet, Mauve, Lilac

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)!
