November 2022 Card Chain Challenge Reveal

Happy December 2nd everyone! Hope you're doing well preparing for the holidays! Chorus has been busy with our show coming up tomorrow!! If you're anywhere near the Twin Cities in Minnesota, check it out HERE.

Today we're revealing cards mailed around the world for the Card Chain Challenge. Twenty-nine people participated & my card went to dear Gail (Crafty Nomad) in Norway. She does so much for the CCC, along with Jo (Jo Blogs)!! You can see the full reveal HERE.

Supplies: Paper - Spellbinders A2 card; My Favorite Things Holly Jolly;
Paper Studio vellum; Hero Arts Glitter Paper Basics; Neenah white
Stamps with Dies - Hero Arts North Pole Express Bundle
Dies - A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop Set
Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity DiesArt Impressions Lg Snowflake Dies
Other - Michael's gems; Hero Arts inks

I used the sketch this month but rotated it 90 degrees. Decided to make Gail's CCC a Christmas card & beat the International mail deadline! Since one of the patterned papers had text, I left off any additional sentiment.

Sketch Option

I received this beautiful stenciled card from Jeanne H. who also lives in the Twin Cities MN. We'll sometimes meet and head to Anchor Paper, a favorite paper warehouse/stamping store. Our November meeting had to be postponed because it snowed heavily. Oh well, maybe after the holidays... Thanks for mailing my card, Jeanne - love it!!

You still have until December 6th to sign up for the December chain - go HERE for full details.

Thanks for stopping!
