  28. Hi Carol,

    Many thanks for your comment on my birthday card that I had entered into the challenge at Crafting When We Can. I am very sorry for entering it without having heeded your rules. I was aware it was 2 entries maximum but hadn't realised it was only 5 challenges. It was a complete oversight on my part and I apologise for this error. I have deleted my cards from your linky and updated my challenges information.

    Thanks very much for letting me know, I do appreciate it. I do enter a lot of challenges but never intentionally break any rules just to link my blog up like I know some entrants do.

    Love Mandy xxx
