Hi all, this is Christi and I am thrilled to bring you my very first challenge!  Before we get into that I want to thank all the people who entered into Hazel's challenge and showing us your Summer Gardens.  We will now be voting on the winners and we have a tough choice ahead of us.

Some of you may know I am crazy cat woman. Maybe not quiet yet, but with five furry felines, I am definitely on my way.  So, to honor my furbabies, I choose CATS as my challenge theme for challenge #83.  I can't wait to see the projects you come up with, and keep in mind you can create anything as long as you follow the theme.  I am hoping you'll get out your stamps, markers, paper, tags, shadow boxes and all your other goodies and will share some of your talent with us!

The prize comes from one of our fabulous sponsors, The Stamp Man.

Feast your eyes on some samples made by the talented team here at Craft-Room Challenges and be sure to click on the name so you can go to their blog and see how each creation was made.

Our rules are shown in the page Pesky Rules above but to give you a quick run down they are:

Our Rules

We are refreshing things just a little and have some updates/revisions to the rules. Please read these and be sure your entry qualifies.

1 You must check the challenge details and comply with all the specifications. i.e. Tell us what about xxxx inspired you means we expect to see some information relating your project to our challenge on your post.

2 Token elements are insufficient if our challenge is for example "Wings" that tiny little flying thing in the bottom left background is not qualifying element.

3 Entries that are really promoting products and or other challenges are no longer allowed.

With these 3 rules we are looking to see that your entry is really a response to the challenge. We work hard on our team inspiration pieces, we have a system in place to make sure we will comment on all the entries we can and this team often comment on more than the those required by our system. All we ask is that you join in with the spirit of our challenge. Inherent is this is the requirement that your project be new and not a back line to an older project.

We are not going to spend a lot of time policing this, entries that do not qualify will simply be ignored by the team.

4 You may not enter more than 5 other challenges besides ours that is a total of 6 challenges entered.

5 You may not enter this challenge more than 3 times per theme.

6 Winner and Top 3 will be selected by team vote

7 While we try to comment on all entries some of us have a problem with WordPress and have found that we cannot always successfully comment on these.

7a We are also cautious about having to fill in a questionnaire before we can comment. We might not take the time if we have a lot to get through.

7b please turn off word verification

8 Our decision is final in all considerations of compliance with these rules.

9 Prizes are offer depending on availability, we are dependant on our very generous sponsors and from time to time we will provided the prize ourselves.
