    I’m so, so sorry…..I posted a “tied” banner on your entry, but in fact, it did not win. It came in second. I hate that there’s no way to delete a mistake. So sorry, but congratulations on your Top 10 placement.

  • Hahaha No worries, Karen! I am very happy with second! I am in VERY good company! :) Thank you so much for the top ten win! I am delighted! :)

    Rosemary, you can submit to the challenges as often as you like. The only time you can’t submit is if you have already won an IMAGE OF THE MONTH OR IMAGE OF THE YEAR. Other than that, keep on! :)

  • Well, I don’t have to be coaxed! :) Thanks for clarifying, Marcelle!
