March Card Chain

For over a year now, Deborah has been organizing us in a card chain - you sign up each month, and then make a card for someone, and receive a card from someone else!  Deborah gives us a sketch, a color palette, and some themes, or we can go out on our own and just make what we'd like.  This month I received this gorgeous spring beauty from Clare:


Isn't it exactly right for this time of year?  So sweet!  And here's the one I sent to Sheila, following the sketch and using most of the suggested colors:


This month we had 58 participants!!  If you'd like to join in the fun, just check Deborah's Blog about the 25th of the month onward, and she'll have a sign-up post.

  3. What a case of contrasts....both cards represent a beautiful spring theme, yours with rich bold color and design and Clare's with softness of color and a bit of whimsy. Of course I love them both! And I love the CCC too...such a fun "little" exercise in global diplomacy!
