Vicki Dutcher said...

I think I might have the linky figured out... finally :)-- super fun challenge! :)

Ellie Knol said...

Don't know what I'm doing wrong, but cannot add my link. It gets as far as asking for my name and link of the post, next screen, I added the picture, and then it doesn't react, I only get the choice of done, but that doesn't add the link to the blog. What am I doing wrong?

Ellie Knol said...

don't know what happened, but now suddenly the link is there! Thanks for this challenge, I'm trying to join every time!

maria preston said...

Just to say how much I love my present and that you are so very talented. Your lovely box now has pride of place in my craft room and will be used to store my favourite butterfly die cuts and stickers. And of course the beautiful ones that you sent me are in there, as they are beautiful. Just love your new challenge and can't wait to have a go I may even use my lovely new butterflies on my card. Thank you so much once again Love Mariaxxx
