The Card Chain Challenge has returned from its SOS hiatus, and I was pleasantly surprised to see a respectable 14 sign up (summer is traditionally slow). I'm so pleased!
Here's a few stats for posterity:
Number of cards that have traveled across the globe so far: 765!
Number of individuals who have participated: 161!
Number of countries represented: 126!
(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.
Read the Revised Guidelines & FAQ's (revised June 01, 2012).
June's CCC 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):
one of the following themes:
Independance Day OR Cook-Out OR Friends
And here they are... the June, 2012, CCC's!!!

Thank you, everyone, for sharing your artistic talent and doing your part for global relations!
Hope to see you there!
