    I am assuming the only way to follow is by email as I don’t see a blue Join this Site button either on the side. I hope that is the correct way to do it. I also love your cards and was happy I had a card to enter into the challenge. I don’t have anything though from Power Poppy.

      I clicked on Google + so I hope I am following now. Not sure though.

    Thanks for the new challenge. I follow the other challenge but don’t see the blue button here.

    Pretty cards that you made.

    I signed up for the newsletter on my personal e-mail as I don’t often go to my gmail. Let me know if I need to sign up with my gmail account. Thanks.

    BLUE FOLLOW ME: The blue follow is Google Friend Connect which has been replaced with Google+. It is still on blogger blogs since there are workarounds. I have found no follow buttons yet for WordPress. I have checked several times now. If someone knows a way please share:-)

    You can also follow via Google+, Twitter or RSS feed via icon on top Right or Bttom Right footer area. I just added Facebook, etc on the sidebar

    Great new blog site … I did notice in your statement: Be sure to add MSC in front of your link name for an extra entry if you any of the sponsor’s image/product. Instructions are HERE ……….. the word USE (if you use any) is missing. Just trying to help and yes I too have to figure the best way to now ‘follow’ … thanks for the fun challenge.

    Congrats on the new site and the new sponsor, so far I’ve been able to subscribe and to link up my blog with the challenge card with no problem. I also checked out Power Poppy’s site and purchased a digital stamp. Marcella Hawley has beautifully illustrated stamp sets. Look forward to more challenges in 2017.

  11. Gail Scott

    Congrats to Gail for the win! Have a happy week!

    Hi, I thought I had left a comment on this post previously but it isn’t showing. It’s a pity you can’t add google friends connect but I am following by email so that works. I had email notification of the winning post. Thank you so much. I am so happy to be the lucky winner. The comment box isn’t coming up on the winner post. I have emailed Joyce. Looking forward to joining your next challenge. Hugz
