Feline Thankful Blog Hop!!

Hello everyone and welcome to our Feline Thankful Blog party and Hop!! Weare 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 Hop and 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
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.
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 FELINEPLAYFUL 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!!!
My Letter is..... E!!!
If you would like to be in with a chance to win one of the following fab prizes, please leave me a comment on this post and the winners will be chosen after the 28th September!
Prize 1
$15 gift voucher for Digi My World!
Prize 2
5 Digis from The Stamping Boutique!!
 
 
In order to celebrate the occasion, here is my 'Thanks' Themed Project! The image is by Meljens, coloured with Promarkers, and the paper is from a dovecaft stack. The various ribbons are from stash, and the leaves are cut with some Marianne dies, which I've had ages but have recently re-discovered my love for ;)
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you luck on our hop!!
