Hi, Friends.....

I have two announcements to make!!!! 

First of all, I want to announce the random winner of my Coffee Lovers Hop giveaway from last week.
The WINNER of this sweet House Mouse stamp  is:  

Teresa Doyle

Congratulations, Teresa!!!  I have emailed you.  Thank you for including your email address with your comment.  It makes things sooooooooo much easier for me!! 

Second of all, I want to announce something I am super-excited about.  You might have noticed a new badge (Woo-hoo!!  I made this myself!!  lol...) up at the top of my sidebar:  

October 29th is National Cat Day!!!!  Sooooooo.....I am going to hostess a Cat Lovers Hop right here on my blog Oct. 26-30. 

I have some awesome sponsors already lined up who are donating cat-themed prizes and I hope to hear from more this coming week. So far, Graphic 45, Waffle Flower, Newton's Nook, Paper Smooches, and Art Impressions have prizes for some lucky random cat lovers.  There will be prizes for people (like you!) who link up cat-themed cards or projects....and prizes for those who comment, too!  

The projects do not have to be Halloween-themed.  In fact, I hope that many of them will not be!  Let's try to have cats as the main theme of the card or project, though, and not just an incidental part.  However, I'm not going to be picky on that point, because I love seeing cats anywhere on people's creations!!!  Any projects are fine, so be creative and get working on something awesome to link up at the end of the month.  But no back-linking, so don't post it on your blog until my linky tool goes live!!!  :)

Feel free to snag the blog badge, too, to let others know about this fun event!!!

Thanks and love all your kitties today!!! (Okay....give your dogs some love, too.  Ha.)

Congrats to Teresa!!!
And Wow! What a great announcement Janis! "Cat Lovers Hop", Amazing!!!!
I am not a cat lover but love all the pet animals! I will try to make at least one card, as I don't have any cat stamp but have a die cut, One of my very talented and creative blog friend KT Fit Kitty is a great cat lover and recently sent me some die cuts as a gift,!!! And going to display this badge for spreading this amazing event!!!!

Janis said...

Thank you so much, Vinita, for putting the badge up. Looking forward to seeing what you make!!!


Teresa Doyle said...

Ya-hoo! Can't wait!! >^.^<
Now if I can only find someone to teach me how to post badges on my sidebar! : )

Janis said...

Thanks, Kitty, for putting the badge up!!!


Janis said...

I think you blog with Wordpress, don't you? I don't know anything abt putting badges on it. Wish I could help. You might have to ask another WP blogger how to do it.


Teresa Kline said...

Janis, I am using google chrome and it wasn't working...went in and rest cookies and it is working perfectly now.

Janis said...

Glad to hear it! I started deleting selected cookies on Firefox, but I can't tell if it is going to make a difference yet. Thanks for the tip!

Karenladd said...

Congrats to Teresa and I am already rummaging through my cat stamps in anticipation of the Cat Lovers Hop! We are down to only one kitty now, but let me say that I still own at least 10 pairs of cat that tells you something, right? (and not just that I'm a little off my rocker...).

Daniella said...

WOW! You are all in on this party! Big name sponsors,badges and everything! I would love to join but I'm not sure if I have any cat stuff that isn't Halloween :( If that's OK, I can promise I will try! It sounds amazing! You should be working for a company and doing this kind of thing, like planning and getting sponsors!
Keep being AWESOME!

Heard about your Cat Hop from KT Fit Kitty's post. Have joined as a follower so I don't miss out on this fun event. Have lots of cat digis and die-cuts - this is a good chance to use them.

D.Ann C said...

I finally sat down and figured it out... you're on! Yay!

Heard the news from Kitty. So looking forward to the blog. Sounds like so much fun. Can't wait!
hugs, Asha
