As stated above,a 6" x 6" pad of Sweater Weather patterned paper and the stamp set of the winner's choice from our September sponsor, Lawn Fawn, was this month's prize. I'm not eligible for the prize (darn it!) but there were 16 cardmakers whose cards were received by their recipients by September 30, so they were eligible.
And the winner is....
Number #4, Becca from North Dakota!
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! Go here for past Chains.
