Lightning Round: Kitties – June 26-July 5, 2011

July 5, 2011

You all are the cat’s pajamas! Our Lightning Round: KITTIES is the most successful yet, and I’m very pleased, happy and downright proud of each and every one of you. 🙂 Welcome to our new bloggers: thanks for playing! I hope to see each of you back for our next challenge.

Speaking of challenges… I’ve finally put the bit between my teeth and made a new post on my blog JUST for this Lightning Round – I even made a video promoting my kitty cards in a fun way!

Here’s the master post of links – all participants, please re-post to your own blogs. Everyone (I mean everyone reading this post, including non-bloggers) – don’t forget to visit and leave a comment on the blogs.

Remember, not only are you spreading the love, you’re getting an opportunity to put a backlink out there to your GCU store, and that’s a very good thing!

The winner of our contest is Diana Delosh – congratulations! 20 free card credits will be coming your way.

    Wow -Thanks, I’m honored.
    I see I have a lot of fun kitty blogs to visit & read. So far I’ve visited 7.

    This was a fun round! I’ll be visiting the long list of blogs over the next many (many) days. I included the master list on my blog AND picked one card from each artist to feature as well. Looking forward to the next challenge/inspiration!

      Peggy, how sweet of you to include a card from every participating artist on your follow up kitty blog. I was so tickled to see my Lets Do Lunch card which was just approved the other day. Thanks so much, you are always such a help.

      Peggy, how sweet of you to include a card from each participating artist in your follow up kittie blog. I was so tickled to see my newly approved “Let’s Do Lunch” card! Thanks so much, you are always such a help to the GCU community.

    I’m inspired! My Calico Cat Squeak just had 3 kittens. I’ll dust off my camera and take a few pictures of their darling faces.

      Oh Nancy, great! Those little feline images will make some great kitty cards! I’d love to see your photos when you get them!

    This was a WONDERFUL Lightening Round! I visited all your blogs and read some funny, beautiful, and very touching stories (yes, I even cried a few times).

    I also posted to all of your blogs, but had some problems with some of those on WordPress and Squidoo. Sorry if my comments on those blogs don’t show up (I tried). 😦

    I also “followed” as many of you as I could (if I wasn’t already following you), but there was a couple of those that I didn’t have success with, either.

    All in all, though, this was truly enjoyable and lots of fun… and great getting to know some fellow cat lovers. 🙂
