March Card Chain Challenge

I was on the ball this month and got my card done and mailed right away....and it stayed in California as I sent it my neighbor in the northern part of the state, Arlene.
Here's the color scheme and sketch from Deborah:

I loved the bright colors and had some fun with the's what Arlene received:

I used Hero Arts and Unity stamps and some bright colored paper scraps. The colorful tree has some Glossy Accents on it to make it special.

And now talking about being on the ball and getting a card in the is the card I received from Jie Ying all the way from Singapore, it's sweet and adorable and utterly charming!
I love those international postage stamps!

I am so addicted to these Card Chain Challenges. The idea of sending a card off to someone I don't know yet and receiving one from another new friend makes me so happy. I just need to give a woot woot to Deborah, the genius behind this wonderful monthly ritual. If you want to take part in a Card Chain Challenge, visit Deborah's blog, Society of Stamp & Scrap-aholics. She posts the new challenge at the end of the month.
