Feline Thankful Blog Party

THIS POST IS STICKY! Scroll down for new posts.

19092011317

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 is at the end of the post.

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!!!

Collect your letter for the secret message dearies! My letter is “N”.

And here is my thank you card for all of you!

Sorry about the picture quality, it’s a cellphone pic. My camera has betrayed me again.

The glitter balls and silver ric rac stickers are from Pie Lane (one of our sponsors). The frame image is a photoshop brush. After printing it out, I pencil shaded the design. I finally used my DCWV glitter stack (after over an year of hoarding it I think), the black and white stripey DP. The button, gems, pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

Please leave a comment in order to win:

4 Digis from

allthatscrapssmall

All That Scraps have the CUTEST, most adorable digis! Click on the logo above to go directly to their store.

And

10₤ Gift Certificate from

Craftroom logo

You can comment any day from 21st to 27th September. Plenty of time to win the prizes I have to offer!

Here is the Hop order:

Please remember to follow the order of the hop so that you don't miss any of the DT members’ posts and most importantly THE LETTER. 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.

Next stop on the hop is Gemma. Happy hoppin people!

Hugs,

I was amazed when I read your personal info that you're from Pakistan. And isn't this medium great to find the most wonderful and caring persons all around the world? When I had a cancer operation 9 weeks ago my dear and close crafting friends around the world send me a card... I got 45 cards in one week. I felt so blessed with it. So I know what talk about in your personal info.
Next to that I want to thank you for your effort on the Feline Playful blog! It's a great pleasure to use it every day!
Big warm Hug
