Was wondering if an entry can be entered in multiple days as long as it is not backlinked when posted for the multiple days? Reason I ask is because I have an entry that I'm going to post on Tues that fits both Mon & Tues days and want to know if I can enter it in both days since it would not be backlinked for either. Please respond.

HI Ladies, since we didnt specify different if it fits the challenge i dont see a problem

Gail said...

Thank you Jodie and Tammy for this lovely all week challenge - the DT rocks with their creations - It has been a totally fun week - who does not love Bugaboo Stamps??? Cannot be one person - I am off to created my last upload - have a lovely Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! Life is good!

kReN said...

I really enjoyed entering your challenge. I now have more holiday cards and projects to distribute to friends and family because you just can't make ONE card/project, you know. It's a great motivator!

Why don't you stop in and follow me!

Janice said...

Another really enjoyable Bugaboo event, thanks for setting it up for us Tammy and obviously thanks to Jodie for her production of wonderful digi stamps. Super inspiration from the DT. Thanks everyone and Merry a bit! Jx

I cannot believe I am writing this, but I actually managed to make all 7 cards! I think this was the most exhausting (cause I only gave myself 2 days for it!), exciting, rewarding and fun challenge I have entered since I have started card-making. Roll on weekend - I deserve some sleep and rest - and a HUGE thank you to the Bugaboo Team for this challenge!!! :)

Thank you for such a fun event. I haven't managed to complete all the days but I enjoyed doing the ones that I could fit in.

Can I also say what great inspiration was supplied by the DT.
