Say No - - Candy!

Hi ya everyone!
WOW some great cards so far for our first challenge!
I'm so pleased you all seem to be really happy about this new Challenge blog
As I have not run a Challenge blog before so thank also for your support too!

I have been commenting this morning and well its taken quite sometime!

I would like to say a HUGE BIG thank you to all of you that read the rules on the sidebar and have already turned off your Word Verification.
Its so much easier and really saves our time.

I am going to give away some candy as a thank you to those of you that have turned off the word verification and also to those of you that do!

So what do you have to do?
To be in with a chance of winning the TURN IT OFF candy

1. Post a message on your blog telling everyone about my candy our blog and what the candy is for on your blog.

2. Post the say no banner on the sidebar of your blog

3. If you haven't already, turn your Word Verification off pretty please!
(If you're not sure how to do this, please see the instructions in our sidebar)

4. Join in with Challenge A for Angels

To make it even more exciting...and give you even greater incentive to 'Turn it off!'...if we manage to get 50 entrants...Helen will add a second candy package!

Owner approval a much nicer way
of screening your comments

Say no with us to Word Verification
Help us make a difference!

This Candy will close midnight 13th January UK time


  1. Hi Samantha

    Couldn't agree with you more. I have done a post about this here.
    Positive my word verification has been turned off for a while and have entered the challenge already.

    Hugs Ali x

  2. Hi Samantha. I have already added the SAY NO BANNER to my sidebar, and tonight I will post a message on my blog. Hope this helps.
    Love Sandra xx

  3. Hi Samantha,
    I totally agree with you - it is very frustrating to have to wait for word verification!! I have never had it on mine I just use owner approval. I will add the banner, do a post and have already done the challenge. Great idea!
