And here we are all the way up to the August challenge?! Really?! My summer is evaporating, and I don't think I'm happy about that - lol!
Welcome to the August Card Chain Challenge - a nice little card exchange where you send a card to the person above you on the list and receive a card from the person below you! (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 players NatQuebec-Canada and Jeanne H. did. Welcome to the Card Chain Challenge!
This Month's Sponsor
Remember the semi-annual stamping retreat I mentioned Monday? I've met so many great people there, and Kim is one of my all-time favorites. Not only is she a great illustrator, she is warm and funny, and I always have a great time hanging out with her.
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: – flowers or school or friendship
One of the following products: 3-D stickers
Sign Up Deadline
You have until Thursday, August 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 Tuesday, September 1, 2015.
Come play with us and join the ranks of participants from more than 25 countries who've made and mailed more than 1,650 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 July 1, 2015: 1,650+
