Thank you for your understanding and please have fun. We look forward to your fabulous creations.

Also, because of the difficulties we have experienced with Facebook entries, I regret that we will no longer be accepting them on the Challenge Blog.  Thank you for your understanding.  

If you do not have a blog and would still like to enter this challenge,  please email me at donnamundinger(at)gmail(dot)com with your name, a picture of your entry and Aurora Wings Challenge #72 in the subject line, and I will add it to our Aurora Wings Submissions Blog, where it can be viewed and commented on, and to the Linky so you can participate here. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx

Good post. I study one thing tougher on different blogs everyday. It should always be stimulating to read content material from different writers and observe a little one thing from their store. I’d desire to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a hyperlink on your net blog. Thanks for sharing. slots for real money
