Happy Labor Day, America (and a good ol' regular Monday to all the rest of ya)!
Because this year the holiday falls on the first of this month, I've decided to post the August Card Chain Challenge Reveal tomorrow and the Sign Up today.
(If you're unfamiliar with this card exchange challenge, I've got a brief explanation near the bottom of this post or you can check out the Rules and FAQ's.)
If this is your first time here, I hope you'll sign up and join in the fun... like our latest player Becca did. Becca is our first North Dakotan! Give it up for Becca and the great state of North Dakota! (South Dakota, where are you?!) Our participants now include cardmakers from 34 of the 50 United States and 25 countries.
Is that cool or what?
This Month's Sponsor
Make a card using at least one of the following four options. (You can actually use two, three, or all four options, but you are only required to use one of them.)
These colors are your guideline - exact matching is not necessary. (Speaking of color, is anybody else having a flashback to the Seventies? Feel free to change that Deep Peach to Harvest Gold or Burnt Orange - ha!)
One of the following themes: – The Moon (in honor of Astronomy Week) or Halloween or Friendship
One of the following products: Markers!
Sign Up Deadline
You have until Tuesday, September 16, 2014, 11:55 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.
Reveal Post & Winner Announcement
All of the cards with links to their creators' blogs or online photo galleries will be revealed here on Wednesday, October 1, 2014.
Come play with us and join the ranks of participants from more than 25 countries who've made and mailed more than 1,400 cards! I hope to see your name here!
Don't forget to check back here September 2nd for the Reveal of all the cards made and exchanged in the August CCC!!!
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
About this challenge. This is an international card exchange - you send a handmade card to the person above you on the list, and you receive one from the person below you on the list. If that's not enough of a win-win, I also randomly draw a prize winner each month. I do a reveal of all the cards with links to the challenge participants' blogs or online photo galleries - which is a great way for you to get new visitors. 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.
Total cards exchanged as of August 1, 2014: 1,403.
