    I added my card to the linky yesterday but my card doesn't show... When I try to enter it again it says "This link already exists for this Thumbnail Linky Lists. Duplicate entries for the same list are not allowed. If your link is not showing, this might be a moderated list and the link has not been approved yet. If you have further questions, contact the blog owner."

  14. I've just added a second card, and it's not showing up either. After reading Pia's post above, I haven't attempted to add it again.

  15. Super fun blog hop - so many great ideas!
    I entered my card but it is not showing up - I tried again and it says it is already there. Here is my card:

  16. Same here. I entered a card and it's not showing - is there a moderation for this challenge or is the linky messed up? just curious.

  17. Great inspiration and love the hop!!
