Challenge #1 - CRAZY FOR CATS - Launch Party sponsored by Lawn Fawn! - Cat Lovers Hop by Cat!

Welcome to Crazy for Cats Challenges Big Launch Party!

I LOVE CATS....enough said right, LOL!
As the saying goes..."you can never have too many cats", well that applies to Cat challenges too, you can never have enough challenges where you can enter your Cat themed projects to your hearts content all year long!  Crazy for Cats Challenges is dedicated in loving memory to Sue EisenHauer, Ike's Art, who sadly passed away in April 2022.

Crazy Cat Lady Design Team Cat Call
If you're a Crazy Cat Lady, or Lad because guys are welcome too, then I've got the PURRfect Crazy Cat Lady DT for you to join!  The call is open to everyone with a passion for creating Cat projects!  So if you LOVE Cats and enjoy inspiring others and would love to apply for the Crazy for Cats' Crazy Cat Lady DT either full time or part time please have a read of the DT requirements HERE!

To celebrate the launch of Crazy for Cats Challenges we're having a big party and starting our first challenge for November early so we, the Crazy Cat Lady DT, can play daily in the Cat Lovers Hop hosted by Janis and then after that all of our new challenges will begin on the first Friday of each month!
