We held a design team call last month and have added some new members to our team!  The new gals are listed below with an asterisk by their name, 
so make sure you leave them some EXTRA love this time around when you visit 
so they know how excited we all are to have them with us!

We loved all the beautiful creations from last month for our blog hop, and we cannot wait to see what you do with this month's challenge!  

We have a fun and wintry challenge this time around, so come and take a peek.  

We want you to...

Can't post my card as I can't change the message that keeps saying: The backlink does not exist on the page you've linked to above. Your entry cannot be submitted until you have the following backlink on the page you've linked to above:

But I do have your link in my blogpost. Take a look: http://pleasurebypeet.blogspot.nl/2017/01/new-home.html

Hugs, Petra

Hi - linky won't let me link up either - and I am pasting the direct link to my post and it says I'm not... here is the direct link


Jen Mitchell said...

I was having the same problem as Petra and I compared the backlink on my blog to the one that is required. When I click on the title to your blog post I get this: http://houseofcardschallenge.blogspot.fr/2017/01/january-challenge-add-building-andor.html Every thing with that link is right except that is ...blogspot.fr instead of ...blogspot.com. I looked at Petra's link and hers is ...blogspot.nl

It seems blogger is inserting a different country's extension on the link for some reason. Weird!

Thought I'd give you a heads up in case anyone else has issues.

The error massage also says
If you have questions about this back link requirement, please contact the owner of the blog. If you have trouble because of the backlink, contact the blog owner, send them your link information, and ask them to manually enter your link using their PREVIEW page in their dashboard.
so can you add mine please?

So sorry you are having issues linking up. Would you please copy this link:http://houseofcardschallenge.blogspot.com/2017/01/january-challenge-add-building-andor.html
and paste on your blog and see if it works?


MHK Designs said...

So sorry, gals! The back link apparently has to be exactly what I added, so if you have a .in or anything added, that's the problem. I have removed that feature and will add all your cards! Thank you for playing along with us! HUGS! :) Mynn xx
