Month, 2014, Card Chain Challenge Reveal!
Hello and welcome to the 2014 August Card Chain Challenge Reveal, sponsored by A Day for Daisies!
If you have never experienced this company's beautiful digital art, you have truly been Missing Out. Please visit the site for plenty of free samples to download and play with before you buy (and you will want to buy, believe me). See below to find out which one of our cardmakers won a $12 gift certificate!
We had 16 participants who exchanged cards across the globe this month - check out their fabulous art!
Deborah (yours truly in Indiana) sent Sabrina in California:
And that brings us full circle! Thank you, everyone, for sharing your artistic talent and doing your part for global relations!
If you want to see more of these artists' card art, check out their blogs and please leave 'em some love in the comments! (Don't forget to Pin your favorites!)
As stated above, a $12 gift certificate from our August sponsor, A Day for Daisies was this month's prize. I randomly drew the winner from a pool of the cardmakers whose cards were received by their recipients by August 31, and the winner is...
Number 12: Robyn!
Congratulations, Robyn! Please send me an email by September 15 so I can get you hooked up with your GC.

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! In addition, participants whose cards are received by the last day of each month are eligible for a sponsored prize. September's sponsor is Lawn Fawn!
