Hello and welcome to the 2015 September Card Chain Challenge Reveal, sponsored by Elizabeth Crafts!
I apologize for this post being so late, but I have had a week that was like something outside of a stinkin' movie. (For those of you who read my last post, the power outage wasn't the last of it. I had TWO more crises smack me upside the head. Sheesh!)
We had 45 participants who exchanged cards across the globe this month using at least one of the following options:
One of the following themes: – The Moon (in honor of Astronomy Week) or Halloween or Friendship
One of the following products: Markers - any kind, any company, any number!
Who Sent What To Whom
In transit - 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!)
This Month's Winner
This month's prize was a $30 gift certificate from Elizabeth Crafts!
I randomly drew the winner from a pool of the cardmakers whose cards arrived at their destination by the last day of the month and who sent me a picture of the card she made by September 28.
Congratulations, Dawn! Please send me an email by October 15 so I can hook you up with your prize!

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.
