Welcome to the February 2013 Card Chain Challenge! I've decided to add something to the mix this month and see how people respond. I've got a Hero Arts stamp for the person whose card gets the most votes. (I've never tried the InLinkz voting feature before, so I figured I'd give it a shot!)
Here's the stamp (Skyline - K5736):
Challenge explained. If you're new to the CCC, it's fairly simple. This is an international card exchange - you sign up to send one handmade card to the person above you on the list, and you will receive one handmade card from the person below you on the list. I also do a reveal of all the cards with links to the challenge participants' blogs / online photo galleries. Please read the Rules and FAQ's if you want to play along. :~D
See example. If you want to see a past CCC reveal, go here.
Creative options. Make a card that uses at least one of the following four options. You can actually use two, three, or all four, but you are only required to use one of them.
These colors are your guideline - exact matching is not necessary.
One of the following themes:
St. Patrick's Day or Lions/Lambs or Friends
One of the following products:
Chipboard or stickers
You have until Saturday, February 16, 11:59 p.m., EST, to sign up below and email me a photo of your card (please include a link to your blog/photo gallery). Please sign up using your first name and your state, province or country. EX: Ann from Texas; Betty from Ontario; Cathy from Wales; Darla from Italy.
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
Happy to join the February CCC. Thanks so much Deborah!

So glad we are playing again Deborah! Thanks for organising it It wouldn't accept my blog address in general. Had to link to a specific blog post ... and I haven't made the card yet, so it's just one of the last ones I posted. OK?

That works for me, Janet! I think I chose for a specific post address without thinking. I'll see if I can fix that. Thanks, Ladies, for signing up!!!

Hi Deborah! I clicked on the voting button below my name - I thought it would take me to another screen to see the various cards to vote for. But all it did was say I have one vote. Help!!

I still don't understand how we can see the cards - like I have not yet posted the blog entry about the card I made ans sent to Sanna and I can't see anybody elses cards either - I have the same problem as Daria - help me too! Shall I now post he card? Or are you sending them out, since you have a picture of them? HELP!

Hi Deborah, I decided to now publish my card on my blog - I have something else to do right now and can't sit on the computer.... So if anybody wants to see my card here is the link:
I can't vote anymore as I had the same problem as Daria.
Too bad, I thought I wait until Sanna has received my card - to keep it a surprise. But maybe she won't look....

Not sure I totally did this right Deborah. I've added my avatar and a link to my blog, but I haven't linked the card yet. I've decided to sent an older one I did a while back as I've run out of time to create something special. But it's not on my blog yet as a CCC. I'll send you a pic though.
