January 2017 Sign-up

Hello.  Welcome.  This is the sign up post for the January Card Chain Challenge.  This is the first sign up of the year and the very first sign up on this blog dedicated to the fabulous card chain challenge.  Please read the welcome post if you haven't already.  If it is your first time here check out the FAQ's tab for details.

We are a little late getting everything running this month so the linky will close sometime 10th January GMT.  This means you only have a few days to sign up so that there is a reasonable chance that cards will reach their destinations by the 31st of January.  The February sign up will start 11th January and run til 6th February.  The reveal for January will be here on the 2nd February and by then it will all be running like clockwork.  LOL

If this is your first time here I hope you will sign up and join the fun!
We've now exchanged over 2,100 cards by participants from 37 of the 50 United States and 30 countries.

This is an international card exchange.  Please do not sign up unless you are willing to actually make and send a card.
