  1. Thank you so much for including my card in your top three. Congratulations to the other ladies as well.

  2. Hi I'm trying to comment on the design team cards for this challenge but none of the links appear to be live

    1. Hi, I think you have been trying to contact the DT by clicking on their names above their card, this is not a direct link, just their name. if you look on the page just above the DT blog post, to the right is the sparkles team, click on their names there which are direcct links to their blogs, click on show all to see all of the teams own blogs. Caz. Hope this is helpful. I will be in touch about your DT application in a day or two. Caz

    2. Thank you so much for your reply.Yep that's exactly what I was doing I did eventually work out about the side bar ( duh) ! I was a little confused as it took me to the DT's blogs and not the actual card so I had to rummage a little bit to find the particular entry for the challenge but thats a good way to get to know their other work.

  3. I'm so happy to win your lovely challenge, congrats to all, blessing

  4. Thankyou so much for choosing my card as a top pick and congrats to the other winners, Cathy x
