FAVORITES for the week ending October 31, 2010
 
To those who celebrate Halloween, have fun this Sunday evening with your trick-or-treaters. http://serve.mysmiley.net/scared/scared0008.gif

As far as trends go, this week there seemed to be more cards featuring paper doilies, both circular and heart shaped. Here are my Favorites.

This is pretty good for "last minute."
Last minute treat bags by mbg10001

Anyone who has tried to machine stitch around a die-cut shape will appreciate this one.
Bountiful Blessings by blondie090277

Here's one with those paper doilies mentioned earlier.
Let There Be Light by busysewin

A pastel snowman against Echo Park paper.
Pink Snowman _pb by peanutbee

A keepsake ornament for a granddaughter's first Christmas.

We've seen double ball ornaments before, but this one is especially nice.

This snowman's tummy is a Sweet Treat cup filled with snow.

Such an intricate trimming job on these pine needles.

Hi, Jerri -- You can't do that from the Quick Reply box. You need to click the Go Advanced button, and then in the Reply to Thread text box, paste your link. Then click the Preview Post button. Your http:// link will *magically* change into words in the text box below the preview. You can highlight those linked words and change them to whatever you want. HOWEVER, we are hoping to at least keep the screen names with the links so that people can find their mentions in this thread.

handmadebysm 10-31-2010 06:48 AM

That's definitely the safest way to go. :D

Speaking from experience here, it's pretty easy to mess things up when you start editing the code.

Actually, there is another way to link specific words. In the Reply to Thread box, you can type the words you want to link, highlight them, and click the http://images.splitcoaststampers.com...createlink.gif globe icon. Then you would paste your http:// address in the little pop-up. Again, you can use the Preview Post button to check that you did it correctly.
