Welcome you to the 2014 November Card Chain Challenge Reveal, unofficially sponsored by Hampton Art! (I have a bunch of extra clear stamp sets they sent me earlier this year, and I'm fixin' to spread some of the love!)
We have a number of new cardmakers joining us this month, so please welcome Nicole from the Netherlands, Jerrie from North Dakota, Asha from Portugal (someone from a new participating country, I might add - YAAAAAAAAAAY!!!), and Pat in the UK!
And now... onto the show! We had 29 participants who exchanged cards across the globe this month - check out their fabulous creations....
OUT UNTIL SHE RECEIVES IT - CHECK BACK LATER!
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!)
A clear stamp set from Hampton Art was this month's prize. I randomly drew the winner from a pool of the cardmakers whose cards were received by their recipients by yesterday, and the winner is...
Number 19 - HELEN!

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.
