I can't believe that we're on Day #14 of our remembrance challenge for our dear friend Janis. The time is flying by, and all of you are making this such a special, memory filled event.
As you know we're very lucky to have Lost Coast Design as one of our returning Sponsor Family. A big thankyou to LCD owner Linda for this.
For some added fun for the next two weeks, Gail and the LCD team, are linking to our challenge with a CAT THEMED challenge of their own for Challenge #176.
They also have some fab prizes, so please go take a look!
When I run my usual Christmas Kickstart Challenges I always have a mid-challenge reminder post. I thought I'd do the same again and also share a card I've created for the challenge.
Day #2 - This post was all about creating a quiet space, (a 'Peaceful Garden' perhaps?) where we could visit and remember our dear friend Janis. Your comments about Janis are so moving - thank you for opening your hearts and sharing your thoughts and memories.
The next few posts were devoted to welcoming our fabulous Sponsor Family, and sharing the details of the amazing prizes they are offering.
Day #3 - I was so happy to sign post the way to Fiki's fun challenge blog SUYP. She's kept this challenge going in memory of her friend Ike/Sue. Don't foprget you can enter your cards at Fiki's challenge as well as here at The Cat Lovers Christmas Challenge.
On Day #4 - We played Game #1 Kitty Roll Call. If you've not joined the fun for this game please, go take a look. There are some beautiful stories of our cats past and present recorded here.
Day #5 - this was where we celebrated WCMD together.
On Day #7 - we played Feline Felonies and shared the Festive antics of our furry friends. I loved reading about your furry felons - so many Christmas catastrophes.
Day #8 - This is the day Gail launched her fabulous Tic-Tac-Toe featuring some of Janis's beautiful Christmas cards as inspiration foe her challenge within a challenge.
Day #9 Saw the start of one of my personal favourites: Game #3 - Name the Kitty. You guys have made me laugh so much with your fun and inventive names for our little white mascot. And I made a new friend called Cat who runs a fun challenge called Crazy for Cats and is dedicating her current challenge to Ike and Janis. Your cards can also be linked at Cat's challenge here!
Day #10 - Kitty shared her excellent, brain-teasing Word Search. I've already had a go, but just cannot find ELF!
On Day #12 Kat Skrappiness joined the fun, and we continued to showcase other members of our Sponsor Family.
Throughout the whole challenge our Helpful Hoppers and our Elfin Nomad Gail have commented, organised, shared their fabulous cards and been behind the scenes cheerleaders! Thank you so much guys, I know it sounds like a cliche to say I couldn't be doing this without you, but it's true.
There's plenty more to come during the second half of October, so please stay with us as we celebrate and remember our friend Janis together during two more weeks of crafting and cat-related fun.
Here's another beautiful cat from the Rescue where I volunteer.
|Can you believe that beautiful Lucky still hasn't found her forever home?
Thankfully, she's currently safe, happy and settled with long term fosters.
I hope it happens very soon for this special girl.
