    9. Hi Sonia,
      I refer to this post every month and enter for challenges. Thank u so much for the info. I need a little help. Whenevr i make an entry to a challenge, then say link it to the linky tool. But i have never found the link tool at any sites mentioned here. Till now i have just seen the linky/inlinkz tool at http://365cards.blogspot.in/ this site. Please tell me how do i find this tool. It gets embarrasing to leave my entry in comments everytime :(

      P.S. Happy Valentines's Day! :)
      Regards,
      Bijal

      1. Bijal entering the ICR is the most complicated of all..the other challenges are very straight forward..for example in BGC if you go to the challenge post there will be numbered entries example 1 to 20 right now as of this writing and a blue button with a frog's face saying add your link..click on the link add your entry link, your name and email..if you are successful your name will come up as the next number. In Itsy Bitsy the entries have photos so even easier.
        Hope its clear otherwise will try and find a photo tutorial for you

      2. No, ma'am.

        I couldn' find the buttons neither the previous entries. I kept my eyes wide open. :) If u have any suggestion or links please do mail me at bijalchitu@gmail.com .

        Thank u soo much for helping.

      3. That is very weird Bijal..what browser do you use?Let me try and find a tutorial link for you

        Delete
      4. Am using mozilla... Funny part is, I find the links in the blogs that use the Linky tool. But i cant find the ones that use Inlinkz (the blue frog one)

        Delete
      5. Bijal I read it might be a browser issue.Switch to google chrome and try.Also refresh the page several times and it might work

        Delete
      6. I installed chrome...yet no use.... :( i guess my blogger account is through google+ profile...that could be the issue.... dnt know

        Delete

      I am new to crafting and started six month back as a hobby. From blog like this and similar tutorials I could do a lot of crafting which I'd never thought I can.

    25. Hello Dr. Sonia,

      Thank you so much for this! I would love to make them myself but I don't know where to buy the materials- the kundan stones. I am in the United States so do you know if I can buy directly from India? or do you know of any site online that I could get them. I've been trying for the last two weeks- no luck!
