    1. Hi Roberta, thank you for reporting your problem. I have moderated the link and you are now entered. The issue was that you linked to the Creative Artiste blog, not just challenge #77. Thank you for entering xx

      Sorry for the mistake.

    3. According to the rules you actually didn't do anything wrong Roberta. It was just Inlinkz being fussy xx
