  7. > Together with my husbands help we have suceeded in linking up the two cards I made for the teal and purple challenge sponsored by Melanie!  I was so confused as to why it would'nt work, and one of my cards I wanted to link up I needed to change the title, because it was "seen" as a title already linked up.  So I added the second photo again to StampTV and changed its' title and it worked! 

    > I am glad it all turned out!

    > Thanks for the challenge,

    > and have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Your linky thing says I don't have a backlink in my blogpost - but I do. I have submitted anyway by ticking the box and hope that you accept my entry. xx
