Day #15 The Cat Lovers Christmas Challenge - Game #4 Becca's Quiz

Welcome to Day #15 of our challenge where we're remembering our friend cat lover and fellow crafter, Janis through cardmaking and fun.

Before we get going I'd like to say a big thank you to my sweet friend Gundi who spotted that some of your comments weren't appearing as they should. This called for some serious detective work...

And after little squirreling in the Spam folder, I found the missing comments. Thanks for the heads up, Gundi, that was a great spot on your behalf and I'm so grateful for your help. I think it's happened mainly on the comments for Name the Cat as Blogger thinks the multiple entries are spam. Thanks to Gundi I'm on the case now and checking the Spam folder every day!

So, Day #15 - here we go....

I'm blown away to be able to add three additional sponsors to the Sponsor Family list! 

First of all, please welcome a newer company
