November 2017 - Card Chain Challenge Sign-Up

Hello and welcome! If this is the first time you've visited the Card Chain Challenge*, we hope you'll sign up and join in the fun! We've now exchanged over 2,404 cards by participants from 38 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.  
  • Please email us (cardchainchallenge[at]yahoo[dot]com) a 100-200k photo of your handmade card by Thursday 30th November 2017
  •  Your card should arrive at its destination by Thursday 30th November 2017. 
Since this is the last exchange of the year, and it's coming up to the silly season, Gail is doing a giveaway.  Everyone who signs up is eligible for giveaway #1.  As long as all the challenge conditions are met and your card arrives by 30th November you could win these two Fiskars stamps.

These are designed to work with Fiskars roller thingy but they work perfectly well slapped on an acrylic block LOL. 

For my second giveaway you gotta work a bit LOL.  I had great fun in September playing with 4 of the options that Deborah has taken the time to set up so.......  For a chance to win this stamp set you need to use at least 3 options.  The colours count as one, the sketch counts as one, then each of the theme or product/technique options count as one.  So for example, use the sketch, colours and a deer, you're in the draw!  Or the sketch, watercolours and friendship you're in the draw! etc.... Any combo you like and don't forget to tell us which you used when you email your card photo.  Anyone using at least three of this month’s options and complying with the challenge requirements is in the random draw for this stamp set.

Of course, you only need to use one option to comply with the challenge rules, but I do hope some of you might like to play along and stretch yourselves.  Hugz.

I'm trying to sign up but the Inlinkz thingy says it won't be open for another 30 days! Did the open and close time get set incorrectly? :-D
