Hello and welcome to the 2014 June Card Chain Challenge Reveal!
I had to postpone the reveal two days because of some health issues with my dad, so I apologize for my tardiness. But no rain falls without some sunshine following it, and in this case, the sunshine was all of you who have left comments on my Monday post. God bless you for all your kind words, thoughts, and prayers. I can't tell you how much they mean to me.
June's CCC had 18 participants who kicked some cardmaking butt (yowza!) using the following challenge options (they could use as many of the following options as they wanted but were only required to use one of them):
One of the following themes: patriotism or sports or Friendship
One of the following products/techniques: anything plaid!
B O N U S F U N! B O N U S F U N! B O N U S F U N!
If your recipient receives your card by August 1, your name will be entered in a drawing for one of the new Hampton Art sentiment clear sets. Since I'm on its Design Team, I've got some duplicates, and I can't wait to share them with you! I have five sets, and the winner can choose the one she likes best.
Hope to see you here!
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!

(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!
