February Card Chain Reveal

Hey crafty friends - our chain grew in February! Thirty-two people sent cards around the world and I was lucky enough to send my card within Minnesota to Jeanne (Reba Li Creates). You can see the entire chain HERE.

Supplies: Paper - Anchor Paper; BoBunny
Neenah White; Paper Studio glitter
Stamps - Hero Arts CL272 All Occasion Msgs (retired);
Ellen Krans Penguin Holidays
Dies - My Favorite Things Bold Stripes Cover-up (retired);
Other - Versamark ink, Ranger Seafoam white ep

I used the colors, the sketch (altering it just a bit), theme of friendship, and a polar bear (couldn't resist). I put hearts on the front and a Valentine sentiment on the inside since I had time to get Jeanne her card before Valentine's Day. I loved this card so much it was a wrench parting with it but I was glad it went to a good home!😀😀

Jo (Just a Dotty Pudding) sent me this darling polar bear card - so darling!! Jo runs several challenges I enjoy, including the Card Chain. 

Funny story - Jo meant to include some crafty bits with her card but forgot. She promptly mailed them in a second card for my birthday - thanks again Jo for doubling up in February!! Even funnier, or maybe not, I got the birthday card in time for my Valentine bday but the CCC card hasn't arrived yet. Here's the fab bday card Jo sent:

We're signing up for March cards at the Card Chain Challenge; please go HERE by March 6th if you want to play along. You make and send one card, then receive one handmade card - very easy and fun!!

Thanks for stopping - hope you have a crafty day!!

How much the little polar bear loves to play with his heart. A very cute card and it's great how you implemented the sketch.

Love your card! So many people went for the bear option this month! I'm glad you birthday card has reached you, but where is the CCC card? The mail has been all over the place since the pandemic started - hope it reaches you soon. Thanks for being a link in our chain, Jo x

What a great card this is. I love how you have interpreted the sketch and your bear looks very happy. Lucky you to receive two cards from Jo, well I assume the second will arrive eventually. The post to USA seems very unpredictable these days xx

Gorgeous card that you sent and what two beauties from Jo. Post is so fickle these days! No doubt Jo's first card will turn up eventually.
