Monika Reeck said...

Nice to read about the 2nd Annual Bugaboo Christmas event...I want to make a card and join the challenge too but where to put the card I did not SEE any LINKY party on this post...please a little answer...many thanks...Monika

misteejay said...

I was wondering if there would be a pre-Christmas event this year - and there is...yipeeeeeeee!!!

Bunny said...

Hey, Monika. They usually don't put Mr. Linky up until the day that the challenge starts. So tomorrow you'll see Sunday's Link, but you won't see the link for Monday until Monday morning and so on. I hope that makes sense. You can make your cards ahead of time, you just can't post them until the day of that challenge. It is a fun time.

I cannot get Mr Linky to work, so here is my entry and I will check in again later, too. This is the final challenge day and I don't want to miss out. Thanks for a great week of challenge themes and all the inspiration given by the DT. An extra thanks for all the cute Bugaboo images to choose from! Merry Christmas !!

Looks like 2 people got their entries in but when I click on Linky it does not do anything.

Gail said...

I cannot get my entry to link up - the link is still not working - not sure how the other 2 people got it to work - I will try again later - thanks

Sunshine HoneyBee said...

Discovered that you have to open the Linky in a new window so put your cursor over the Linky and click on Open in New Window and the stuff you normally fill in will pop up.

Bunny said...

Thanks, Melissa. It worked perfectly and I got to add my card.

Suze said...

I tried following Melissa's suggestion but I don't get "Open in New Window" either.

Here is the link to my card:

(AJ) ArtJypsy said...

Woo Hoo! I passed the linky test. Placing the cursor over the box wasn't getting me anywhere. I couldn't open in a new window. Okay I will give you another hint - I went into my browser settings and changed the compatibility view settings. Good luck.

Andrea D. La Vigne said...

Thanks for that tip, Melissa! I might add, you have to right-click on the Linky button to get the pop-up menu so you can open the link in a new window or new tab. I got it to work that way. Hope this helps future entrants!

Gail said...

Open in a new window worked for me -thanks Melissa!

Suze said...

Thanks AJ - your suggestion worked for me.

Mel C said...
Here's my link for the Friday challenge, I couldn't get the link to work. Thanks

Unknown said...

Love the great challenges! I couldn't get the link to work for Day 7, so I'm posting my entry here.


Unknown said...

Let me try that again. LOL!

Danielle Vincent said...

Hi ladies - I can't get the linky to work for the CAS challenge so I'm hoping I can submit to you this way and ask that you post it. I've tried 3 times :o( Sorry to ask this but I don't want to miss out on entering all 7 of these fun challenges.
link to my card:
It's the last one in the post.
Thanks so much and thanks for the fun holiday challenges. Hugs!

StampNScrapJunkie said...

Woohoo! I made it! With four hours to spare! What fun and good luck to everyone! Oh, look! I made a rhyme. I do that when I'm tired or stressed and boy howdy... I'm tired! Good night all!

Jessi said...
