Welcome to the 2015 April Card Chain Challenge Reveal!
Once a month, we all sign up for a global card exchange: you send a handmade card to whomever is before you in line, and you get a handmade card from the person behind you in line. And if your card arrives before the first day of the next month, you are eligible for a randomly drawn prize!
We had 38 participants who exchanged cards across the globe this month using at least one of the following options:
One of the following themes: – Cinco de Mayo or Memories or Friendship
One of the following products: Dies - any kind, any company, any number!Who Sent What To Whom
IT'S IN THE MAIL AND ON ITS WAY! (Becca won't send me a picture of it because she wants me to be surprised when I open the envelope. Isn't she a sweetie? I'll upload her card here after it arrives.)
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!)
