Winners SPCC #3

***Scroll down to see SP Color Combo #4!!***

Lemme tell you. . . it is incredibly difficult to narrow the list down so SPCC can have a winner and a top 5. . . I agonized over it quite a bit last night and again this morning. Finally, I have a list for you :O) Thanks to all the entries. I enjoyed looking at every single project. I hope you will play along this week too.

Note: Next week, I will be showcasing the winners BEFORE I post the next color combo so that the color combo remains at the top all week. I feel it may be easier to follow along so we can have one challenge finalized with winners before the next challenge starts. I hope it will work out, but I may have to adjust it again later down the road. Also, I will be putting the winner and top five buttons at the very end of the winner's circle post from now on.

Let's check out those winners!

The winner of SPCC #3 is. . . Joan!! She made this fancy card:

The flourish, bling, and bird are just so great.


Joan, please send me your mailing address, and I will send out your prize! Be sure to grab your winner's button from the bottom of this post.


Now for the Top 5!
For the top 5 winners, I have a Top 5 button at the bottom of this post.

Here are this week's Top 5 picks (these are in no particular order):


Linda


Kat


Amy


Robbyn


And finally, here are the buttons for all the winners! If you need help getting these added to your blog, just let me know!
This is the button for the winner:

How to Add the Blinkie using Blogger

Hey everyone!

I have had many of you ask how to go about adding the SPCC blinkie to your blog so I have decided to write up some step by step instructions for how to add the blinkie if you have a blog at blogger.com ( this would be anyone using a blog address as something.blogspot.com )

To get the blinkie added:
  • Go to your dashboard (go can get there from the blogger.com page where you sign in)
  • Click on the "Layout" link under your blog name
  • There should be a place on the page that says "add a gadget"
  • When a box pops up, click on the plus sign symbol next to the gadget called "Html/java script"
  • A new window should pop up that has a place for a title and then a place for text. Copy and paste the text from under the blinkie listed on the SPCC sidebar.
  • Then save and you should have the blinkie!
  • On the "Layout" page, you can move the widgets so you can put them in whatever order you want them to show up in.
Please Note: the blinkie doesn't actually blink and it is not intended to blink!! I do not like things that blink so I chose to make mine not blink. :O)

If someone could email me the steps for adding the blinkie using typepad or wordpress I would really appreciate it!!

Happy Crafting,
