Good Morning

Morning to all my lovely Crafty Friends and Followers

Well no crafting for me today as off out spending some time with hubby as I have been away in Leeds all week so spending some quality time with Rick.

Today I am showcasing my card for the Kraftyhands Challenge which is charmed.  I am asking you my dear friends if you would help me to get this challenge blog going.  I am sure that many of you have Crafter's Companion or even Kraftyhands products and if not it doesn't matter you can still enter with a chance to get a fab blinkie for your blog.  The challenge closes on Friday at 12 noon so still plenty of time to enter. 

Here is the card I made for the challenge.


I would be grateful for any feedback on why no one is entering as your comments would be invaluable.  This challenge blog is my baby as I am blog administrator so it would mean a lot to me if you could let me know what I am doing wrong.

Many thanks for stopping by today and I look forward to reading your suggestions.
Hugs xxxx

This is a beautiful card Linda- so many fabulous elements to it.
I think the main reason interest seems to be lacking is that there is a plethora of challenge blogs out there.
I don't think that there is anything you are doing wrong, simply that the choice of challenges is so wide now.
(For what it's worth?)

Hiya hun, your card is stunning I love the embossing and the image is fab. I have just popped over to the challenge blog and had a look, the rules all sound good but I would add one that says that people must link back to the challenge blog in their entry post (as a lot of people find new challenges from seeing one of their friends enter) The other thing that I would ask is if you have registered the challenge with feline playful as that can help a lot, I will try and get an entry together as I have some crafters companion stuff and I will try shouting about it a bit on my blog when I post (may not be for a couple of days but I will get something done before the challenge closes) and try to do something early on when the next challenge starts, I hope that's some help hun and I hope that you have a lovely day out

Barbara said...

Don't think you're doing anything wrong Linda, it's maybe 'cos there is just soooooooooo many challenge blogs around at the moment. I'm sure it will pick up xx

Hi Linda, lovely card. I was under the impression you had to use Kraftyhands or Crafters Companion products but I have just re-read the rules and see that you don't. I don't use charms very often but I will check back regularly to see future challenge.s

Andree said...

Your card is fabulous Linda, I love the embossing and the timepieces. I'm sorry I've not entered your challenge, I've been away from home all week, I'll try to remember next week x

Gwyneth said...

Great card Linda. I only occasionally enter challenges but I don't think you are doing anything wrong, I think it's just a case that there are a lot of challenges around so getting yours noticed will take time and a lot of advertising.

Wendy H said...

Lovely card Linda. I haven't entered any challenges yet, but will try to. Wendy. xx

Teresa Kline said...

hi, first your card is awesome, I adore the time pieces, sweet!

I did not know of your challenge blog, just stumbled upon your blog while blog hopping...I am a challenge junkie...lol. Would luv to help ya, first; if you ever have a sketch challenge, you can link up here....

second, you can contact Deb here and get your blog on the list, she posts the list everyday, so the day of the week of your challenge it will always be on the list....

I agree with another gal, there are so many challenges out there, it is hard to get noticed. I would play in "anything goes" challenges when your challenge runs and hopefully more people will see ya.

The only other thing I would suggest, any time you type out the name of your challenge blog anywhere, always link to it. You mention in your post and I was hoping you had a link to it, I had to find it elsewhere on your blog, make it easy for your readers. I hope this helps, going to check it out now! Have a fabby weekend!

enjoy *~*

Avril Ann said...

Fabulous card Linda and will go and have a look at your challenge, have family here this weekend, so hopefully get a chance to put a card together tomorrow, xxxxx

Hi Linda, as always your card is gorgeous, I love the embossed background,

I agree with some of the other comments, you need to link to the Challenge blog whenever you mentions it, and you don't have a link on your side bar, I will try and find the blog and will try to enter if I have time, as other have said there are so many Challenge blogs out there, you need to get promoting yours, Hugs Janet

Danie May said...

Gorgeous Card Linda, such stunning detail and I love the green paper you have used.
As for your challenge site Linda, if you haven't done so already I would try listing it at Feline Playful.

A fabulous card Linda. You're not doing anything wrong, as everyone says there are just so many challenges out there. I must admit I don't do many challenges, just don't seem to have the time x
