Lightning Round: Kitties

June 26, 2011

That’s right, you heard me…it’s time to let the cat out of the bag ’cause we’re going to blog about KITTIES!

What’s not to like? They’re furry and cuddly and cute and purr and they do silly things that make us adore them + they can be extremely naughty, putting some excitement in your life. 🙂

So no pussy-footing around – you’ve got until Tuesday, July 5 to write a blog post about kitties and include links to 3 cards at GCU with a cat theme (here’s a headstart). The subject of your post can be anything as long as it’s cat related.

After the 5th, I will post the master list of links for everyone to share. AND there’ll be a drawing for a cool prize: 20 free card credits!

Don’t miss out – artists who’ve tried it agree that sending out your own cards to friends and relatives is an easy way to get new customers and more sales.

Either post your link in the comments of this post or email me your information to be included in our challenge.

    I *REALLY* got carried away, but here’s mine:

    I LOVE kittens, and my daughter just got one, so it’s a tribute to her. 🙂

    Cindy, I think your post looks great with all the fun kitty cards. We had a cat named Luna years ago. Your daughter’s Luna is adorable. I tried to comment on your blog site but it wouldn’t work.

      Oh, I’m sorry you couldn’t comment, Betsy. Did a pop-up message suggest anything? You’re the first person to tell me about problems commenting on my blog, so I’m not sure what to do. :-/ Thanks for letting me know, though. I’ll fiddle around with it and see if I can figure it out.

      Thanks again,
      Cindy

      Betsy, I made some changes to my blog settings, and I can post anonymously (“kittens, kittens, kittens” was from me – lol). If it’s not too much trouble, I wonder if you could try to post again some time and see if it works for you now. I’d be very grateful if you could. 🙂 Oh, and I do have it set to moderation – so you won’t see the post until I get there and ‘publish’ it.

      Thanks again, so much! 🙂
      Cindy

        Hi Cindy,I did post a comment again and it worked. I kept getting “url contains illegal characters”. I did it differently the way I put my name in and it seems to have worked.Have a great day..

    I’m in! (I missed the Monkey carnival and I wanted to highlight the Affenpinscher (Little Monkey) dog breed but was too busy to play then). Yay!

    Given the suspect that I must have been a cat in my past nine lives 😉 I created a lense “Life without Cats…?!? (a love story)”

    Looks like there are as many cat-lovers as I assumed 😉
    I just added the story of my Spanish cat family to my lens:

    I finally finished the kittie challenge. Here’s my entry. I was hoping to have a couple new kittie cards approved that I could include by the deadline of this challenge but I didn’t want to wait until the last minute. Happy July 4th to all!

    Thanks Corrie for past tips/tutorial on how to link and show images in a blog. I still have much to learn but your help was huge. I missed the She sells sea shells (plan to still do albeit too late to enter contest) but here’s my cat themed blog for this lightning round. http://lisacharltongallery.com/BlogPage/2011/07/05/new-kit-on-the-block/ . Cheers, Lisa, http://www.Greetingcarduniverse.com/LisaCharlton
