Feline Thankful Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to our FELINE THANKFUL BLOG PARTY and HOP!! We
are SO THRILLED you have chosen to party with us. We have organized
this blog party to thank all of those who have joined us as followers - over
1800 of you and counting!! We want to say "THANK YOU" to all of you who have
been so supportive of this wonderful blog that tracks over 500 challenges! 

A very SPECIAL THANK YOU to KAREN HOWARD, who started this blog just over a
year ago and actually ran it solo for quite a while. Now a team of 14 ladies
make up the DT for Feline Playful, led by SHELLEY and we continue to add NEW
CHALLENGES almost daily including winners for those challenges, DT calls,
blog candy and more.

We are hosting this BLOG PARTY to say "THANKS!!" to all our followers for
their continuing support. We have joined forces with a very long list of
FANTASTIC SPONSORS who have donated images, store credit/$ vouchers and
Guest DT Spots to PARTY WINNERS. 

There are 3 WAYS TO WIN:

1. JOIN THE BLOG HOP - Our blog hop starts September 21 at 9:00 am (GMT) -
which just happens to be the International Day of Gratitude -
and ends September 27 at 9:00 pm (GMT). Each DT member (we have both past
and present DT members playing along) will be awarding prizes at the end of
the week to random commentors on their blog. And commentors will also be
entered into a GRAND PRIZE draw at the end of the week. The hop order will
be as follows:
ABI 
AUDREY
BERENICE R. 
• CG
CHRISTI  (you are here)
DAWN
ERUM aka E.T
Gemma
Jennie 
KAREN HOWARD
LEESA aka THE NAVY WIFE
LIN
NANCY
NATALI
SHELLEY
SHELLY
ZOE 
Please remember to follow the order of the hop so that you don't miss any of
the DT members’ posts. If you get lost along the way, please return to
FELINE PLAYFUL to find the hop order. Most of all, have fun and remember to
keep coming back to FELINE PLAYFUL for all challenge listings, etc. each
day.

2. FIND THE SECRET MESSAGE - Each DT member on the blog hop will share a
letter on their blog. Once you have all the letters, unscramble them to
discover a secret message. E-mail your answer to felineplayful@gmail.com All
correct answers will be entered into a draw for a GRAND PRIZE.

3. VISIT FELINE PLAYFUL - Enter your name using Mr Linky and you will be
entered to win one of our DAILY PRIZES. You only need to enter once to be
eligible to win all week long (but you do need to be a follower of FELINE
PLAYFUL please). At the end of the week we will also be selecting at least 1
GRAND PRIZE winner.

Add your name to Mr Linky and check back daily to see if you're one of our
lucky winners:


So what are you waiting for? Let's get this party started!!!


This card was features a gorgeous fairy from Mirandas cards, and it was colored by my wonderful sister in law EO. Love these colors and that blue background paper is from Colorbok's Rosewood stack. 


This is my second Thank you project. I followed the directions on SCS to make this candle, it will be going to my sister in law who has been helping me color. In theory anyway, lol. She has two teen daughters who are already staking their claim. I used the same Thank you stamp from Studio G and the butterflies are from Simon Says. 

I am so privileged to be a part of the Feline Playful team and I am so proud they let me be on this blog hop. You should have arrived here from CG's blog. Two random commentors to my blog will receive a prize.
Prize one:


Prize two:

Aren't those awesome prizes. Okay here is your letter L. Make sure you hop along in the correct order so you can get the whole message. Your next stop is Dawn
