Feline Playful Gratitude Blog Hop

                     ********  Happy Day of Gratitude to you!!!*********

   I recently joined the Feline Playful group to- give a little- since I have enjoyed playing along with challenges for so long.  The ladies decided to have a HUGE party for the Day of Gratitude.  So.......
  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!   WAHOO!

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 that is NOT me!!! ) 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
• DAWN
• ERUM aka E.T.
• Gemma (links to come)
• Jennie (links to come)
• KAREN HOWARD
• LEESA aka THE NAVY WIFE
• LIN
• NANCY
• NATALI
SHELLEY- you came from here
SHELLY- You are HERE!  Almost done........
ZOE-You will go here next......

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 on the Feline Playful Blog HERE 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!!!

   I used a digital image and digital papers from McMahon Five Designs- one of our Sponsors for the party, and used a Technique Junkies Technique- another {Big} sponsor for this party! 






 I colored the image with Ranger Distress ink Tattered Rose and Aged Paper and SU..............  I spritzed over the image with Glimmer Mist.  The background Digi Papers from McMahon Five Designs were printed on Cryogen White text weight {sparkly} papers.  I used the sketch challenge from Midnight Madness. I added some dyed seam binding and fgathered it for interest.  I used Technique Junkies Out of the Box and Wisped Edges for my card.
Here is a close-up of the shimmer:


   Anyone that Knows me, Knows that I love pink and Technique JunKies!!!  

 There are two prizes available at my blog that will be awarded on the 27th- to win, just leave a comment .  (To win the grand prize, remember to gather all of the letters and e-mail as in the instructions above)


 First is HLSC aka  Happileigh Scrappin Store






 HLSC is owned by Leigh who loves to draw digital images, and offers them in colored and uncolored images.  Leigh is generously offering 5 digi's of the winners choice. 
Please stop by and check out the HLSC Blog too.

Next up is  Creative Craft Challenges

has offered a chance for you to win a spot as a Guest Designer for a Challenge.  Stop by the blog and see what the challenge is at the link above.

Thanks for your generosity- and Thanks to all of the Feline Playful followers- I am so grateful for this Blog- and I use it frequently!


OK- on to Zoe's Blog for your next letter

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the Blog Hop!
