Make Me Smile Rubbernecker Challenge #18

We had so much fun looking at all the outstanding monochromatic cards with the last challenge. We are going to get a little extra kind this round. National Smile day is coming up October 7th.  We are not sure who said it but “A warm smile is the universal language of kindness” Our theme this round is going to be:

Make Me Smile

 All you have to do is… 

  1. Check out the rules...
  2. Make a project that has the Make Me Smile theme – it has to be very obvious that the Make Me Smile theme is there.
  3. Click the Inlinkz button at the bottom and link up your image.
  4. PLEASE REMEMBER OUR RULES.  It breaks our heart when we have to delete a gorgeous creation for lack of compliance, but because we have random winners, that’s the only fair thing to do. 
  5. Those using a Rubbernecker Stamp image may enter up to THREE times
  6. Those using a stamp from another company may only enter ONCE. 
  7. ALL creations must have a stamped image to be eligible.


Our prizes will include:

1 (one) First Place Winner ($25 GC to Rubbernecker Stamps)

1 (one)  Second Place Winner ($10 GC to Rubbernecker Stamps)

All winners will be chosen via our froggy friends at InLinkz and announced Monday July 17, 2017

  1. A great theme and great inspiration for the challenge but I can’t find the InLinkz… the shortcut only points to the blog’s main page.

    1. HI there,

      There is a little blue button at the bottom that says “add your link” I am not sure which short cut you are clicking on. I have checked the post and all links and everything looks fine on this end. If you still have trouble let us know. thanks!


      1. Thanks for your reply it gave me an idea and I have worked it out. In Internet Explorer instead of the blue button I get this message: “This InLinkz widget is not allowed in this website. You can still view the linkup here” where the “here” points to your main page.
        I checked on Chrome and sure enough the blue button appears! Might be something in my settings, either way I know how to do it this time!

        1. so glad that it worked out. Yes, most websites work best on either Chrome or Mozilla/firefox. I have had good luck with the new version of internet explorer just called Microsoft edge, but internet explorer just doesn’t want to play nice much haha 🙂 So happy you are playing along and hope to see your creations for a long time in the future 🙂

  2. Thank you for the challenge – I found you when I visited Keri Blog. Created a shaker card today with an encouraging message inside the shaker part, so I am hoping this makes you smile – I will be back each week to share my art – the DT has does a fabulous job on their art work here – their creations made me smile – have a blessed week
