Lovely, I like the colors and the gentle and sweet image.
What a wonderful Spring card, Jane! I love the coloring, all the green and the tiny yellow flowers. Such a peaceful card and the lacy background is just the perfect touch!

Thanks for a fabulous challenge!

    I hope your day is going well - below is an email that Marlene and I agreed to send to blog challenges when we see Jose Non -Linked - have a lovely day - Marlene
    I am Marlene – Design Team member of blog challenges. I have written this notice to blog challenges regarding a crafter who continues to Non-Link cards. I feel the only way to get Jose to play by the rules is to expose what Jose continues to do when entering challenges.

    Jose has Non- Linked to several of the challenges in which I serve as Design Team Member.

    She has Non_linked to your challenge this fortnight with entry # 7

    Here is what we have done to help Jose:

    1. I have reach out to Jose to explain the rules to the blog challenge

    2. I have encouraged Jose to link up her cards properly so she could be eligible for a prize.

    3. I have offered to Teach Jose how to link her to the blog as well as to link back to the Challenge.

    4. Explained in a kind message to Jose, that I will expose what she is doing by contacting blog challenges

    Here is what Jose has done:

    1. Ignored or deleted our messages

    2. Continues to Non-Link her cards

    3. Adds the web address of some of the challenges but they are not hot links

    4. Deleted all of the cards she posted on her blog from 2012 – it could be she is planning to upload those creations with a new posting to entry 2014 challenges

    We realize two things:

    1. That not all DT member check the date of a blog posting when the card is entered in their challenge

    2. That blog challenges can handle non- linking in any way they choose

    It is sad when we have tried to get Jose to understand the challenge world rules and yet, Jose continues to non-link her cards. I understand a crafter making a mistake, but we feel this is not a mistake – it is either a game Jose is playing or she just does not care about blog rule challenges.

    Thank you for taking time to read our message – have a blessed day.

  3. Thanks for the high five Maria! It is nice to receive such nice comments on my work! Thanks for another great challenge!
