...IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Hi, guys...this is Mercy. I have spoken to Jessica and Marie, and they are aware that the gallery is down. The server is not equipped to handle the massive amount of uploads that are are being posted. Please continue to upload your cards to other galleries and your blogs, but check back every now and then to see if the TGF Gallery is back up and running.

Please do not email Cindy, Kim, or me if the gallery happens to crash again...we have no control over the server, and we are helpless to do anything. Just go ahead and upload to Splitcoast, Paper Craft Planet, and/or your blog...then leave your comment, card link, and email address at the CORRECT post here at the TGF Blog. We are working very hard to get your images out to you, and we can't do it if you are posting incorrectly. Please refer to Jessica's rules for the TGF Relay HERE...we will be abiding by the rules from here on out without any exceptions, so please follow the instructions to the letter.

Thanks for your patience and understanding!

Mercy - I am sorry that everything went haywire. Unfortunately I must have been overlooked - I had my Ian in on time and posted to the gallery and I followed all the rules for him and here it is less than an hour before the due time for Charlotte is and I still don't have my image - went as far as making the card base last night with all the details so I would just have to color her and pop her on, but no such luck.
Pretty disappointed.
Hope CHA is fun.

I also didn't get my image autmatically,although i did get it in the end. Unfortunately I'm not at home and my mum's laptop refuses to acknowledge my camera and I can't upload the photo of the card I've stayed up all night finishing it in time for the deadline arrghhh!

Karen said...

Am I the only one who gets an ACCOUNT SUSPENDED page when I try to click on the SHOP icon???

I bought digital stamps this afternoon but I didn't download them yet because I was at work... I figured I could download them at home but when I click on the greeting farm shop button it showed me an ACCOUNT SUSPENDED page.... this is weird, could it be related to the gallery????

Jess said...

Karen, account suspended is happening to everyone.
*hugs*

Rachel said...

Sorry it's not going smoothly, but try and remember too MUCH participation is not a bad thing! :0)

Hugs, ladies!

Gabby said...

Oh you poor girls with all this hectic uploading and misposted posts. If everyone who's confused who would stop to read the rules and what not...would see where and BY WHEN to post. That's why I have my Toby Cub card done...but will be posting it tomorrow on my blog and then leave my comment in the appropriate post. I'm new to this whole thing too...so it's just a matter of getting it.

Sorry you guys have to go through so much...you deserve a BIG hug and a BIG THANK YOU for all you're doing. You guys are not responsible for what's going on with the gallery and the miss postings...you were just left to do YOUR job.

BIG HUGS SISTERS!

And to everyone else...let's be patience...remember...patience is virtue!

Mercy said...

I JUST LOVE YOU, GABBY! :)

thanks for being so understanding with all of this chaos, everyone..that's the only word for it! LOL!

This N That said...

Oh, gosh. I feel terrible for you ladies! You are troopers and YOU deserve all the best!

terrie said...

you ask to be patience, I understand that BUT when you have done the proper thing and on time of getting these images and now it is pass the time to post and still have no image..what is one person suppose to do?
I have made comments over and over and still nothing...
everything is fine if you received the images BUT if certain people have not received their image it is no fun anymore...
I would like a reason why some people are still waiting for their image and because we didn't get it in time we are out of the relay contest...
If you think I'm complaining then I guess I am...

Mary Giles (OhioMary) said...

Thank you girls for all your hard work even amongst the glitches. {{{BIG hugs}}}

Dani said...

Super Huge Hugs!!!

Thank you for doing all you can for all of us! :)

Mercy said...

terrie, do you notice anything missing? how about a link to your card? we are not going into the gallery and searching through all of the cards to make sure you did one. the rules state to leave a link to your card and your email address...that's the rules. no card link = no new digi.

we have restated over and over and over again to refer to the rules for receiving the new images. if you forget to link your card, or you forget to leave your email address....you will NOT get a new digital image. we are sticking to the rules, and i would have appreciated it if you would have sent me a personal email instead of airing your laundry at the blog.

EVERYONE PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE A LINK TO YOUR CARD AND YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS AT THE CORRECT POST EACH DAY!

thanks!
mercy

kim-paperbabe said...

Amazing!!! You're all so keen you really make me smile. Crafting is the hugest community and I have never seen so many people want to be a part of something so bad they make a gallery and an online shop crash... ROTFL!!!

The gallery is back and already filling with toby entries!!! Way to go Mercy and Cindy you guys rocked the contest and I know how frustrating it is searching through comments!

BiG HuGs Kim :)

terrie said...

Thank you for letting me know what when wrong...
this all that I ask..
I left so many comments and received nothing till now...
I understand and I'm not asking for any favors...
now I know..thank you

MacKenzie said...

Mercy and all the Girls who helps with this contest I would like to Thank you ALL for doing it! I know that this is a lot of the effort and how hard it is to respond to all and make sure everything is going all right. I am sure that everybody appreciate it! You are the Best Girls! And you are doing a Fantastic JOB!
Sending you my HUGS!

Mercy said...

anna...i checked all of my emails that i sent out, and i DID send the image to you. i am resending you the original email. the only thing i can figure is that since it was the first email you had ever received from me, and it contained an attachment...it was probably sent to your spam folder.

check it out and let me know!

thanks!
mercy

Frank said...

I can't find where to post the link, etc. for Toby Cub...

Mercy said...

the deadline for toby cub was 6:00 pm CST/7:00 EST tonight...your chrlotte card was due by that time.

JessicaRabbit said...

Thanks so much for the great work you're doing!
I've not had any problems what so ever..I appreciate everything you do and couldn't ask for better turn around time on the digis.
I'm sure this is a huge job!
Thanks again!
Jessica Rabbit

Frank said...

I posted Charlotte last nite....I just finished Toby Cub and was looking to post him tonite.

Thanks!

Mercy said...

frank...wait to post your toby cub card at tomorrow's post when the new digi image is revealed. that way it will be in the right place! :)

Frank said...

Thanks for the quick reply. :)

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Sorry Mercy... I was one of the dopes who couldn't read directions until I went through them three times, and then emailed you. Shame on me! I blame it on Old Age Setting In. You and Cindy and Kim are doing an awesome job. Thanks so much!!!

Hugs,
Lisa

Caroline said...

Hi there - Just wanted to let you know I am having so much fun with the relay. The images are so adorable!! The directions are very clear IMHO and actually I appreciate that the rules are all spelled out.

I must have lucky timing at the Galleria... Ive had no touble in uploading to the galleria. Ive linked my card each time to both the galleria and my own blog (to be safe - LOL) and left my email in the comment section of each days' relay post like we've been asked. Ive received my images in a very timely manner each time. Y'all are doing great!! I appreciate all the effort that has gone into and continues to put this relay on.

The response y'all have received has been huge. That says a lot about the success of your blog. Good job!!

Angie said...

Thank you so much for all the hard work you re doing! I am LOVING this relay, as are many others, so just know that all your hard work is TRULY appreciated!!!

Nishant said...

Thanks for all your hard work!

FionaJ said...

Girls, you are amazing, the work you must all be putting into this doesn't even bare thinking about, all i want to say is you are stars, again the rules are clear, and i've never had any problem with the images arriving or getting my card posted to the gallery or the right blog comment section.

THANKSYOU ALL, BIG HUGS ALL ROUND
