In April we had participants from Australia, Canada, Denmark, England, Germany, Hong Kong (NEW!), Indonesia, (NEW!) Ireland, Mauritius, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, and the United States. If we add in past participating countries Belgium, Croatia, France, and Japan, we're now up to 17 countries represented thus far! That's only 178 countries to go before we can say we have complete global participation!!! (Of course, I'm still working on the alphabet, too, so are there any K or L, etc countrywomen out there who would like to play?)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.
Tea Rose, Azalea, Rubyfruit, Aloe, Avacado
Note: the colors and names are a guide -
so don't stress out if you can't get a perfect match.
Linky sign-up: 11:59 p.m., EST, Monday, May 3, 2010.
If this is your first CCC, please send your email and
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)!
The May CCC results will be posted on Tuesday, June 1, 2010,
and they are mighty fine!!!
