Hello and welcome to the 2015 May Card Chain Challenge Reveal!
We had 37 participants who exchanged cards across the globe this month. You can always tell when it's the holiday season because that's when people are on vacations and forget to email me pictures of their cards - lol! So we have a few holes this time around, but I'm hoping I can get them filled before it's time to publish this post!
Participants had to use at least one of the following options:
One of the following themes: – Flags or Food or Friendship
One of the following products: colored pencils
Who Sent What To Whom
IN THE MAIL!
IN THE MAIL!
IN THE MAIL!
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!)

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.
