4. Right click and paste the address from the card page where you see the blue highlighted http. If the http:// isn't highlighted make sure you highlite it first then drop your address over it. Double check to make sure you don't have two http:// or the link will not take.

ADDING A LINK within words IN YOUR GALLERY CARD:
Type the address in your card description as you see it below but where you read PASTE YOUR LINK you will actually paste the link not type the words.

Where you read CARD is where you type the name of the link for example the web site for images you used might be Cornish Heritage Farms so that is what you type in not card.

DO NOT MAKE SPACES IN THE ADDRESS (I had to leave a couple so it would not go into link mode)

[ URL=paste link here][COLOR=blue ]card[/COLOR][/url]

Thanks to Lacyquilter for the directions.

------------------

GALLERY - FASTER VIEWING
Hold down the keyboard shift key while you click on the card photo thumbnail, it will come up in a seperate page or you right click on the thumbnail then click on OPEN IN NEW WINDOW in the pop up box.
You can make a comment if you like and let it take it's time submitting. Click on the first page again and continue viewing while that comment submits. HAPPY VIEWING!

To bring up all the cards for one week in the gallery type in (for example) SC01 in the gallery search box or click on the gallery submissions link in the challenge thread .

Thank you!
 
It's been awhile since I checked out the Master Files for the Sketch Challenges--thank you so much for adding the photos of the cards! I am such a visual learner and it's so awesome to have a sample of the card right by the sketch!
PS--Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place--I just wanted to tell whoever is responsible THANK YOU!

giving proper credit when uploading to blogs
 
I just did my first sketch challenge (LOVED it!), and I was wondering--I would like to upload my card to my blog. Is it enough to say that I got the idea for the card from participating in Splitcoast's Sketch Challenge 160, or does proper etiquette require that I give credit to a specific individual? If so, where do you find this information?
Thanks!

I'll send you a link to Beate's blog, she does a wonderful job showing off the sketch and her card.

Thank you for all the sketches! They are wonderful.

Luv Flowers 03-24-2008 01:20 PM

I am new around here and have only submitted 2 challenges. I'm not sure I did it right. I uploaded it as usual, putting the challenge info first. Does each challenge generally get posted the day of, or is this week a bit different because of spring break? Also, can I post the challenge info and pull up cards only for that challenge, or is that only done by the moderators? I'm just learning. Thank you for your time and patience.

Thanks Rox for the files. I've printed them out and put them in a binder along with the Color Challenge combinations. This should come in handy for the upcoming VSN!!!

Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place. I just had to tell you all at SCS *thank you* for these amazing sketch challenges--and all the challenges. I've been stamping just over a year, and I have finally realized that the challenges are the places for me to look for inspiration. I look forward to participating whenever I can. And having the sketches organized makes it that much easier! Thanks for maintaining a simply AMAZING site!

I would like to print just the sketches, but the 1-96 is giving me an error. The second/97-161 opened fine. Is it just me?

TIA!

Rhonda it opened okay for me so the site might have just been busy. I had that problem opening a link sent to me last night but I got it on the fourth try. So try again!

rhondag 04-01-2008 08:21 PM

Yes it is working fine now.....sorry to be a Henny Penny :) (The sky is falling)
