The CCC's have been received so well that I've decided to set them to a regular schedule. I plan on revealing each month's results on the first day of the following month. Since today is February 1st, it's time to see what kind of card art was generated in January!
(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 to learn more.)January 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):

Thanks for the nice comment re: my card. Inside it was a small excerpt from his speech. I read it every year on his birthday, and I always cry my eyes out. What an amazing man. What an amazing Christian walk he gave us all...!
