Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper July 2019 challenge

Regarding problems with Linky Tools

Update - I've received this from Brent at Linky Tools:

Here's the issue... the site has over 18K old users with 9+ MILLION old image files. So it is really bogging the system down. I am in the process of spring cleaning the old users and files. I have no idea how long it will take (a few days) and I apologize for whatever inconvenience and aggravation it causes. I'm working hard to resolve it. Linky Tools has run very smoothly for many years... I hope to have this cleared up as fast as possible.

I'm having the same problems myself ... sorry for the inconvenience, but, as Brent says, it will be cleared up as fast as possible. Even if you leave your link in comments, I can't add because I have the same problem. It will get sorted.

Having said goodbye to Gina with thanks for her faithfulness on the DT and her beautiful designs, we are pleased to welcome a new DT member:

'I started cardmaking about 5 years ago when my friend introduced me to her Cricut Machine. Since then I discovered Pinterest and YouTube and I now I do it all - stamping, stenciling, die cutting, watercolouring, Copic markers, and multi-media. I live in Canada, I'm retired, I have no kids but have two puppy "furkids" (Taylor & Swiff - yes you read that correctly). Besides making cards, I love reading those trashy romance novels, photography and travel.'

Here are the designs from myself and the rest of my wonderful team - I am so grateful to them for sharing their lovely designs:
