Hello and welcome to the January 2019 Card Chain Challenge Reveal! 

Welcome back to our regular players - it feels like way too long since we had a reveal to enjoy together. New players are very welcome too. Hey, wouldn't it be great to grow the list of participating states and/or countries... anyone from Idaho, Connecticut or Zambia out there? 

In January we had 17 participants who exchanged cards across the globe during the month (making our total number of exchanged cards a staggering 2,699 thus far!) using at least one of the following options:

A 'double the fun'
Colour Palette Option


Sketch Option
(Orient as desired)

Theme Options:
Snow, New Year, friendship


Product / Technique Options:
Die Cuts, Sparkle, Vellum

And that brings us full circle.

Thank you, everyone, for sharing your artistic talent and doing your part for global relations! We've now exchanged over 2,699 cards by participants from 38 of the 50 United States and 30 countries!!!
