We Are One Today !!!!!!! Giveaway

Happy Saturday everyone!!! Today is our one year Blogoversary!!! Thank you all for reading the blog and being our friend. I am proud to be part of such a wonderful group of caring people. I am kicking myself for not starting a blog years ago, but I am glad I finally did and now have so many cat loving friends. I am having a big giveaway to thank you all, I have 12 crocheted toys and a catnip mat. The lucky winner will have a toy for every month of the year and the mat. Just comment today and/or tomorrow to enter. I will announce the winner on Monday. 002 003

We are hopping – I am using one photo for Athena’s Caturday and The Lazy Pit Bull’s 52 Snapshots. The theme this week is “Sky” so I found a sky photo for free on publicdomainpictures.net where you can have 5 free images a day. Then I put a photo of Lucy in using Lunapic. I hoped to find diamond stickers, but I couldn’t find any so I made my own- I know it looks like a child did it πŸ™‚ This is my Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

    Happy Blogoversary!
