Feline Thankful Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to our FELINE THANKFUL BLOG HOP!!   I hope you have hopped from the gorgeous Karen @ Feline Creative  :)   If not you can pop on over to the Feline Playful site HERE and hop along with us from the start to end.  

We are SO THRILLED you have chosen to hop along with us. We have organized this hop to thank all of those who have joined us as followers - over 1700 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! We want to say a very SPECIAL THANK YOU to KAREN HOWARD, who started this blog on her own and maintained it by herself at the beginning tracking challenges and then winners, DT Calls, blog hops and more. Now over 14 ladies make up the DT for Feline Playful, lead by the AMAZING SHELLEY and we continue to add NEW CHALLENGES almost daily including winners for those challenges, DT calls, blog candy and more.

We decided to host a BLOG HOP 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 our HOP WINNERS. Our hop will last from Sept. 21 until Sept. 27 so that hopefully everyone will have enough time to complete the hop. You must leave a comment on all blogs along the hop route to be eligible for our prizes. Each DT member (we have both past and present DT members playing along) also will have a letter on their blog for you to find and complete a sentence. Once you have figured out the sentence (the letters will be scrambled), you will e-mail your answer to us at Feline Playful and you will be put into a drawing for a major  prize as well.

Please remember to follow the order of the hop so that you don't miss any of the DT members posts (my blog hop list is under my shared project, just scroll to the bottom of the page). 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.

Ohhh I almost forgot .... 
I have to give you a letter lol! 
"R"

Now it also would not be a FELINE PLAYFUL PARTY without sharing a creation and of-course; lots of challenges to boot!  In keeping with out 'THANKFUL' theme I have a 'thanks' gift for a very special friend (that while she doesn't know it yet lol) after she helps me unpack my life on the other end in Perth in a few days is probably going to need a manicure; so I have whipped up a nail file holder card for her with the luscious Graphic 45 Wizard of Oz papers and chipboard elements. 






So time to get hopping!
