Oh, my goodness! It's time to sign up for the April Card Chain Challenge!*
(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 Taunya Butler did. Taunya is our first player from Utah! Give it up for Taunya and the great state of Utah! Our participants now include cardmakers from 35 of the 50 United States and 30 countries (I've been saying 25 countries, but I just added them up, and it's definitely 30 - woo-whoooo!)
Is that cool or what?!
I want to give a shout-out to a few players:
- Mrs. A in Great Britain and Jutta in British Columbia, Canada - haven't seen them in awhile and I'm so pleased to see them back in the line-up!
- New players: Taunya in Utah, Sara in Missouri, Vikki W from Australia, and Linda in Michigan!
This Month's Prize
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.)
You can orient this sketch in any direction and/or flip it.
One of the following themes: – Cinco de Mayo or Memories or Friendship
One of the following products: Dies - any kind, any company, any number!
Sign Up Deadline
You have until Monday, April 6, 2015, 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 in Texas; Betty in Ontario; Cathy in Wales; Darla in Italy.
Reveal Post & Winner Announcement
All of the cards with links to their creators' blogs or online photo galleries will be revealed here on Friday, May 1, 2015.
Come play with us and join the ranks of participants from more than 25 countries who've made and mailed more than 1,500 cards! I hope to see your name here!
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
*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 to increase exposure to your blog or photo gallery! Please read the Rules and FAQ's if you want to play along. :~D
Total cards exchanged as of March 1, 2015: 1,549
Super prize! Great sketch and colours! I'll play as soon as I get someone I haven't sent to previously. :)

I am SO happy to be back to play in April! I've missed you all and love this swap!
Special thanks to everyone who took the time to send me well wishes while I was recovering from my Hip Replacement Surgery.
Very happy that the worst is OVER ---

Please leave me out of the prize drawing, Deborah. Was on the fence about signing up this month with trying to get Easter cards made, but couldn't resist sending a card to Portugal--new country to add to my list! Besides, I never tire of getting a handmade card in the mail!
