January 2022 Card Chain Reveal

Hi everyone - once again it's time to reveal cards that went around the world for the Card Chain Challenge. This month 27 people participated; you can see the entire chain HERE. I sent my card to sweet Marga in Spain. It was fun to write to her in Spanish - I suppose it would've been nice to use Hola Amiga as my sentiment... I began learning Spanish in grade school and kept it up all through college (one of my majors). Too bad I don't get to speak it much day to day.

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White;
Concord and 9th green
My Favorite Things Woodgrain Whimsy;
Sunny Studio Sweater Weather
Stamps - Hero Arts All Occasion Messages (retired)
Sunny Studio Everything's Rosy
Dies - Spellbinders Snowflake Splendor
Hero Arts Spring Branch (retired)
Sunny Studio Everything's Rosy
Other - Park Lane gems

Once again I've used both the color scheme and the sketch, plus the theme of friendship. I thought the hexagon from the Spellbinders snowflake set would be fun in place of the circle element.

I received this beautiful card from Arlene (A Bit of This and That) in California. I just love the blue flowers and the gorgeous marbled quilted background (it's patterned paper)!! Arlene's a teamie with me at Die Cut Divas - check out our challenges if you like to use die cuts. Arlene also sent me a bunch of die cuts that will come in handy for future cards - thanks, Arlene!! 

You can still sign up to participate in February Card Chain - go HERE by the 6th; you only need to make and mail one card - so fun! Thanks for stopping and have a crafty day!!

The chain was so long this month that I ran out of time before I got to you yesterday, but here I am today. I love the bold colours of your card. The yellow and red look fantastic. Arlene's card is pretty special too xx
