Announcement... Karen is retiring!

Hi everyone!  As some of you may already know, my true passion is making cards for Operation Write Home and so I’ve decided to retire from Feline Playful and follow my true calling.  I’m very happy and excited to share with you that Feline Playful's Lead Challenge Coordinator, Shelley Dureau, has graciously agreed to take over Feline Playful and is the new owner. Shelley has been the motivation behind Feline Playful for some time now and has many amazing things planned that I’m sure you will love.

I sincerely hope that you will continue to help out and will wholehearted give Shelley your full support. Although I will no longer be involved with the blog I will be working behind the scenes with Shelley to transition the blog and ask that going forward you kindly direct all questions and concerns to Shelley.  I’ve already updated the email address on the blog so that future emails go to Shelley but will continue to forward to her any emails that may come my way.

Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me and Feline Playful, I truly appreciate it!

Hugs, Karen
