But this one is a special CCC because it marks our one year anniversary!
As a result of all the fabulous women who have shared their talent, skills, and love, I am now in the possession of many beautiful cards that have arrived from all over the world. I cherish them and the women who sent them! (I'm keeping them in a special box with a note to Gigi that it is to accompany me to the old ladies' home; failure to comply will result in immediate disinheritance!!!)
Because it's a special occasion, I thought I'd toss out some blog candy in the form of word and alphabet stamps. I'll do a random drawing and announce the winner during the September reveal. (My apologies for the less than stellar images.)
In August we had 33 participants hailing from Canada, Denmark, France, Ireland, Indonesia, Mauritius, New Zealand, Norway, the Philippines, Switzerland, and the United States.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.
(You also don't need to use all of them.)
Pirates (in honor of National Talk Like a Pirate Day) OR
Friendship (National Girlfriend's Day is August 1st, btw!)
Linky sign-up ends at 11:59 p.m., EST, Thursday, September 2, 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)!
Don't forget to check out the August CCC results!
They will be posted on Tuesday, September 1, 2010,
(and they are wunderbar)!!!
