But then you remember the 2017 Cat Lovers Hop begins today!!!
Welcome, welcome, welcome to the 2017 Cat Lovers Hop!!! This is our third hop and little by little it keeps growing. I am so excited you are a part of it!! This is the post where you link up your cat projects all week long. (Please use #CatLoversHop2017 on social media!!) 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!! These 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 2017 CAT LOVERS HOP:
Before you get started, PLEASE read the 2017 Cat Lovers Hop Guidelines and FAQs HERE. This will answer many of your questions, particularly if you are new to our hop!There are three ways to get a chance to win a randomly drawn prize from our awesome sponsors:
1. The Cat Lovers Hop is open world-wide....so 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. 28, 2017. (Please use #CatLoversHop2017 on social media!!) You may enter your project in up to 3 other challenges in addition to this one...so a total of 4 challenges all together. See my 2017 Cat Lovers Hop Guidelines and FAQs HERE 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 2017 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 on projects must be made by 11:59 pm Pacific, Sunday Oct. 29, 2017 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.) Around 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!! And no blog is required!! :)
NEW THIS YEAR: You can link up your entry to the Daily Games throughout the duration of the Hop, including the extra day for commenting. Entries need to be in by 11:59 pm Pacific, Sunday Oct. 29, 2017 to be eligible for the daily prize. Each of these daily prizes will be available world-wide! Yay!!

Okay, now......just how incredibly fantastic is that line up????? Are you excited yet? I am!!! 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!!
As I was listing all these amazing kitty stamp sets, it occurred to me that many of you cat lovers might already own some of these sets. If you would like to tell me in the comments of this post which (if any) of them you already have, I will try to make sure that if you happen to be a lucky winner you will get a set you don't have yet! :)
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 your comment below 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 at the bottom of THIS POST to be eligible for prizes. (Please use #CatLoversHop2017 on social media!!) 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! Remember, 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.....Are you ready????
On your claws. Get set. Gooooooooooooooooooo!!! Have fun with this and let me know if you have any questions!
