    So excited to be part of this challenge! But speaking of buttons, where is the Inlinkz button so I can post my card?

    So fun! I just so happen to have a bowl of some very fun buttons right here on my desk! They may or may not be made from a DT girlie that I may or may not use to sway the jury. Hehehe.

    I have a card to submit, but can’t seem to find the Inklinz tool. I’m probably just overlooking it.. can someone point me in the right direction. Thanks.

    I happened to stumble upon your site…what fun you have going on here! :) Now, I would like to play along with the challenge but I seem to be lost?! It says, to use the Inlinkiz tool below…well, I can’t see one at all! I tried looking all over and I’m just not seeing it?…(maybe it’s just me?) Can you please help me out?! :) Thanks.

    Hi girls, is the Inlinkz tool missing from the post or is it me not looking in the right place?
