Feline Thankful blog hop stop #5

**This Blog Hop is now closed**

Hello there, and welcome to your next stop in the Feline Thankful Blog Hop! I'm so lucky to be part of the great team at Feline Playful, where 500+ challenges are tracked each week. If you're not already one of their over 1800 members, now's a good time to start!

If you stumbled upon this post, please go the Feline Playful blog to read all about this big party; there are so many fantastic prizes to be won, including two right here on my blog.

I just want to take a moment to thank all you crafters & Challenge hosts for not only helping me grow as a crafter, but for always adding a bit of sunshine to my days. I'm certainly thankful for ya'll!

There are three ways to win prizes during our party, which runs Sept. 21 - 27 (winners posted on the 28th):
  1. Visit the Feline Playful site (be sure to be a follower) and enter your name into the Linky list. You only need to enter your name once to be eligible for daily prizes, as well as a Grand Prize.

  2. Visit all the blogs on the Blog Hop and keep track of the Secret Letters provided on each one. Once you have all the letters (in order!), e-mail your answer to felineplayful@gmail.com.
    • Your letter for this stop is: E

  3. Leave a comment on the blogs as you hop along for chances at extra prizes.
All winners will be chosen randomly, and announced on Sept 28 at Feline Playful.

Your next stop on the Hop: Christi's Creations

Here's my "Thank You"-themed project:
Free-standing Pop-up Card Tutorial: Splitcoast Stampers
Stamps: Inkadinkado, Hero Arts
Paper: Recollections, stash
Tools: Martha Stewart punches & scissors, Fiskars papercutter, Cricut & SCAL, stamp block, Sew Easy, needle, Crop-O-Dile
Supplies: ZipDry glue, Recollections embossing powder, Versamark inks, Copic markers, Pink Paislee baker's twine, stash eyelet, acrylic gems


This card is very much inspired by one of my favorite cats of all time, Blue, our neighbor's tom. Although he's the toughest cat on the block (I caught him hunting a raccoon once!), he's also a big sweetie & lets me give him a scratch now and then. Just one of the many things in my life for which I am very thankful!
