In May we had participants from Canada, Croatia, Denmark, England, France, Germany, , Indonesia, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, (NEW!!!) Slovenia, (NEW!!!) Switzerland, and the United States! If we add in past participating countries Australia, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan, and Mauritius, we're now up to 19 countries represented thus far!
Only 174 countries to go before we get complete global participation!!! (Of course, we're still working on the alphabet, too, so participants from countries beginning in K, L, O, Q, R, T, U, V, W, X, Y, and Z are especially welcome!!!)
NEWS FLASH! I have recently remembered that Vatican City is a country, and we're going to have a real challenge on our hands to get that country to participate - do priests craft? Do any of the workers have citizenship in VC? Do they craft?! Anybody that can figure out a way to get one of their citizens to play will get a very special reward!!!
And just for the record, we've had 67 people participate thus far! Yessirree, Bob! We're shrinking the globe one card at a time!!!
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.
Aqua, Psychedelic Purple, Hot Magenta, Burnt Orange, Peachy Parchment
Note: the colors and names are a guide -
so don't stress out if you can't get a perfect match.
*As in farm-related because it's National Dairy Month! (You can include other barnyard, non-milk-producing animals, scenes, etc, though.) Here's an example:Deadlines

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 rather wonderful!!!
