Welcome to the
2016 CAT LOVERS HOP!!!
I am so excited to see you today for the 2016 Cat Lovers Hop!!! Yay!! It finally has arrived. This is the post where you link up your cat projects all week long. I also will have daily posts that you don't want to miss because there are more fun things to see.....to do....and to WIN!! They will have post titles that include the day of the hop like "Day 1...." "Day 2....." so be on the look-out for them!
How to participate in the 2016 CAT LOVERS HOP:
Before you get started, PLEASE read the 2016 Cat Lovers Hop Guidelines and FAQ page. This will answer many of your questions, particularly if you are new to my hop!
There are three ways to get a chance to win a randomly drawn prize from our awesome sponsors:
1. Link up a cat-themed project (or projects...there is no limit) right here at the bottom of THIS post by 11:55 pm Pacific, Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016. See my 2016 Cat Lovers Hop Guidelines and FAQ page to see what qualifies as a cat-themed project, so you don't miss out on being eligible for the prizes!! Around half the prizes will be randomly drawn from projects linked on this page. Be sure to include my 2016 Cat Lovers Hop Badge in your post.
2. Leave a comment on any or all of the cat projects from the link up. The more comments you leave, the better your chances of winning! Comments must be made by 11:59 pm Pacific, Sunday Oct. 30, 2016 to be eligible for the comment prize drawings. (Notice that you have an extra day for commenting on those projects that come in on the last day of the link-up.) The other half of the prizes will be randomly drawn from comments on the cat projects.
3. Participate in the games you will see on each of my daily posts (They will have post titles such as: Day 1....Day 2...etc) There is a daily prize!! Entries will need to be in by 11:55 pm Pacific of the day of that post to be eligible for the daily prize. Each of these prizes will be available world-wide! Yay!!

WOW!!! What do you think? AWESOME, right????? I am so humbled and appreciative that each of these wonderful sponsors has agreed to support the Cat Lovers Hop. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all these new and returning fabulous companies!!! I will be introducing them in more detail on my daily posts, so be sure to come back each day!!
NOTE: Since a few of the prizes are quite sizable, some sponsors sadly must limit sending them to USA addresses only...because of enormous international postage costs. I have lots of sponsors, however, who say world-wide is fine! Yay!!! So please tell me in EACH of your comments if you are USA or International and PLEASE leave your email address (in code).
(Here's an example: "Love this gorgeous kitty card. The coloring is fabulous and that expression on its face is priceless!! <3 Janis jwoolbright at gmail dot com USA")Unfortunately, if I cannot tell where you live, I will assume you are international and you will not be eligible for the USA only prizes.
All cat-themed projects must be linked up right here on THIS POST to be eligible for prizes. I will have some other DAILY games and activities with a link-up on that day's post....specifically for THAT game. PLEASE do not link your cat project up in the daily posts......only right here on THIS POST. Thank you! Also, you may enter your cat-themed projects in other challenges, but please limit it to 3 other challenges besides this one....so 4 total challenges. Thanks so much for this.
So.....On your claws. Get set. Gooooooooooooooooooo!!!
Have fun with this and let me know if you have any questions!
Does anyone know who made ENTRY #117? There is no blog or Flickr url with it....????? (I had my settings wrong on my link-up or it wouldn't have posted.) IF THIS IS YOUR CARD, PLEASE DELETE AND RE-LINK WITH A url. Thanks!!! <3 Janis
