Hi, Cat-Hopping Friends.....
Here we are at Day 3 already! Wow....have you been checking out the fab entries everyone has linked up on the Main Hop Post so far? Be sure to hop around and leave comments. You don't want to miss a single one of the amazing posts!!!
Have you had a chance to visit our sponsors and tell them "THANK YOU for sponsoring the 2020 Cat Lovers Hop at Her Peaceful Garden!"? I have already noticed some very kind notes of thanks and I really appreciate that. I list handy links for each featured sponsor on the Daily Posts. Feel free to go back to the previous posts to catch up with the sponsors you have missed. I work hard to line up all these fabulous sponsors and I want them to know we appreciate their generosity!!
Also.....I happened to notice a few extra prize opportunities being offered by some of our lovely Cat Hoppers. Becca , Alex, and Karen have something special for Hoppers who comment on their projects....and there may be others! (Confession: I haven't actually started hopping, yet. I am desperately trying to stay ahead of my post deadlines!! lol These are just the ones I have noticed!) Thank you, gals, for making our Hop extra fun by doing this!!! ❤
NOTE: When posting your projects on your blog, please remember to post the Cat Hop Badge also if you can. I know that isn't possible with other platforms like Flickr and IG, but Marshmallow and I would really appreciate it when you can. Thanks!!
Just a reminder.....You must SIGN IN HERE to be eligible for prizes. Also, LINK UP ALL PROJECTS ON THE MAIN HOP PAGE by 11:55 pm Pacific, Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020. I have my 2020 Cat Lovers Hop Guidelines and FAQs in a handy tab just under my header at the top of each page.
Okay on to the Day 3 festivities........
My featured sponsors today are: Stampendous!, Altenew, Gerda Steiner Designs, Darkroom Door, Sunny Studio Stamps, Unity Stamp Co., and Ike's Art (kindly sponsoring our Daily Games each day).
Let's get started with the introductions.....
Kitten Hugs stamp sets to a lucky Cat Hopper.
Here's yet another returning sponsor on our list, Altenew!!
PRIZE: Altenew is kindly donating a $15 Gift Voucher to their online store to a lucky winner.
I am delighted to have Darkroom Door return as a sponsor this year. They have fabulous products and I know you will be impressed with their awesome designs.
PRIZE: Darkroom Door is generously providing one of their Sitting Cat Eclectic Stamps to a lucky winner. How awesome is that image??!! I liked it so much I chose this prize to be the one for the "Post my Badge" Giveaway!
NOTE: This happens to be the only cat in their catalog, but it is one of the BEST I have seen. I am hoping they will offer more cats in the future. They told me this year that COVID interrupted their plans for releasing new stamps. But you might mention when you visit that we sure would love to see more cat stamps....and, of course, to thank them for sponsoring!! :)
Thank you to all of you who already thanked Darkroom Door in connection with the Blog Badge Giveaway. I love it when I see that!! It makes a big impression on our sponsors when they are appreciated!!

In the interest of keeping things manageable for myself in this year's Hop, I decided to follow Ike's lead and I am using cards I made back in 2016 as samples again, too.
So, for today......the featured digital image from Ike's Fleaz Navidad digital set is "Carol Cats". CUTE!!!!
Here's the card I made from this wonderful digi:
|Yes, that kitty DOES have teeth, but I realize now that I should have accented them with a white gel pen!! oops...|

You do NOT have to participate in the digi giveaway to answer the Daily Game question that lets us all get to know each other better.

REMEMBER.....you must link up your name in the linky tool at the bottom of each post to be in the drawing for the digi prizes.
Cat Poetry was such a popular Daily Game last year (check out this link HERE if you want to see what everyone wrote!!) that I decided to reprise it.
The Baby is here.I will crouch near and guard him.Baby will be safe.
The Queen is dethroned.Cats can eat peacefully now.Coons can relax, too.
This is how to play the game to be eligible for the prize drawing:
1. Make sure you have SIGNED IN HERE to be eligible for prizes.
2. Write some cat poetry to share with us.
3. After you finish your comment: if you want to be in the drawing for the prize, fill out your (own) name in the link up below. This doesn't have any thumbnails so no photo needed! You don't even need a blog!!! This is for everyone!!!
Thanks for all the great participation in these Daily Games. Are you liking them??? I have a lot of fun thinking up cat things for us to talk about and cat games to play. I hope you enjoy this feature!
