  2. Hi Everyone,
    what wonderful inspiration.
    Thank you so much.
    I cannot find the code for your blinky, so it will not go on my site, which is sad as I would love to have it there
    I have entered, but twice I have tried to put my pic in and it never works, so I really don't know how to enter, it always happens to me, so I never manage to get an entry in.
    Am sharing the challenge, but still can't get my entry in, am very sad.
    I hope that you all have a wonderful day.
    I hope that you all have a happy new year filled with love and joy, where all your wishes and dreams come true.
    Love and best wishes.
