Here is the link to a few of my cards...but only being able to submit two, I would like to say the first baby one, and then the colorful stars birthday card. The baby one was cut using Mini Monos for the scalloped square, and Alphalicious for the letters. The birthday card used George for the stars.

Here is a card that I made for the Day 9 Challenge of Caardvarks with my lovely Cricut machine! The challenge was to use a clock on the card so I made my own using George and Stamped.

I made this card using Animal Kingdom. I tried to make the horse look like a My Little Pony for a little girl that loves them. It has lots of sparkle!

Dottie K said...

Can anyone help me link a card here? I downloaded to Hallmark Scrapbooking. My picture is blurring - don't know why - the original isn't and I can't figure this out. Can you tell it's my first time downloading and linking. Would appreciate any advice? Why I'm asking questions why can't I see anyone's cards from their links on this site. What am I missing???? Thanks :) Dottie

regina said...

Hi Dottie, all you have to do is link the address (basically copy and paste) where you put the card on hallmark here in your thread under your comment. if you look at some of the other ladies, no you can't see their card, but if you copy and paste their web address into your web address line, you would see the picture...let me know if you need more help. regina

Dottie K said...

Hi Regina,

I see the card and I see what everyone else did but I can't find where to copy that link from. I've searched and can't find it. Thanks for your suggestions but I'm stuck. Any further suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm sorry this is my first post and I'm lost. :)

regina said...

hi dottie, this is the link to your card


it is the words in the address line....so if you copy what i put above into the address line, you would find your card.........so put this link in your comments here on the board for the contest. regina

Dottie K said...

Hi Regina - I get that but where did you it from - what am I missing here? Thank you so much!!!!!!

regina said...

hi dottie, well if you go to the page that has the picture of your card from hallmark,look at the very top and you will see the address to that page.

Dottie K said...

Regina - Would you email me at ohcrunch@msn.com. I really appreciate your help!
