Card Chain Challenge Reveal and 3000 Cards Blog Hop

Hello Nomad friends.  Today is the day for the Card Chain Challenge May Reveal.  24 cards went whizzing around the planet in May spreading joy and love,   And that means that since it was started by Deborah Nolan, way back when, that 3000 cards have been sent and received!!!  Wow, sounds like a cause for celebration!!  


So we are gonna have a hop, there will be prizes.  More details will be revealed later in the month on the Card Chain Challenge blog, along with more games and chances to win.   Gotta keep you interested, and also I'm an eleventh hour sort of girl, which is probably why I forgot to press the publish button and am late to my own hop!!!!!!  Bwahahhhaaaaahaaahahaa.

I sent this card to Linda in Minnesota.  There are scary things happening there at the moment so I'm thinking of you and hoping you keep safe.


I used the sketch and colours, repeat on the butterflies, and the sticker options.  I used washi tape at the top and bottom of my cream card.  The lady is a vintage image from Kort of Godt.  She was going to be a bathing beauty, but I tried a bit of colour tinting and she had to go and lie down due to a terminal case of sun burn.   So I picked this elegantly cool lady instead.  The butterflies were cut from another of these vintage collections and a goldline sticker to finish.  

If you'd like to join the fun and games then hop over to the Card Chain Challenge blog.

If you'd like to join the card sending then the June sign up is open until the 6th June.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  15. Your description "She was going to be a bathing beauty, but I tried a bit of colour tinting and she had to go and lie down due to a terminal case of sun burn." is so funny. I can't seem to quite get the image out of my mind or stop the inward chuckle. The elegant cool lady is charming. Such a pretty card.

  24. Well, it is highly regrettable abt the bathing beauty with the terminal sunburn, but this vintage gal is a beautiful substitute! (I am still wondering if the sunburn was terminal as in it killed her, or if it was terminal as in it was ON her...ahem...."terminus"! lol...)
    This is such a lovely card. The warm colors are so pretty and the washi gives an opulent look.
    Thank you for the welcome to CCC. I am looking fwd to participating in the card chain and getting acquainted with everyone!
