Can I make one birthdayscard and link to that one on all of the DT blogs? Or do I have to make a new card for each DT blog? And, also, the prize for the number-collecting-game, is that the one that will be drawn like normal for the challenge-winner?

I've done the wonderful hop and left a comment at each blog post. I love your blog and am trying to collect up some goodies so I can actually start making some myself. It does say in the contest rules that we "will need to leave a comment OR a direct link to a card" so I've done that. I have tried to use the "mr. linky in the past and it doesn't seem to work with my computer. Please enter me in your contest.
