MCT ~ "Beary Special Blog Hop"

Hello everyone!  Even though it's not quite Halloween, Emma has decided to give you all a "Beary Special" treat"!  This doesn't cause weight gain, but it will cause CUTENESS OVERLOAD!  Included in this hop, you will see a "Beary Special" stamp set that was designed by Emma for this special hop.  Also, joining us for this hop are 5 - VERY TALENTED "Guest Designers"!

You should have arrived here from the super creative Amy's blog.  If not, then make sure you head back to My Creative Time so that you can start at the beginning with Emma.  You definitely don't want to miss a thing!  So find a comfy place to sit and grab your favorite beverage - you are in for a "Beary Special" treat!


Isn't he a cutie?  I just love him!  The black, white and red cardstock are all from Recollections.  The polka dot patterned paper in the background is from the Simple Stories ~ Handmade Holidays stack.  


This sweet little teddy bear is cut from the brand new Create A Critter 2 ~ Cricut Cartridge.  The scalloped oval shapes in the background are cut from the Art Philosophy ~ Cricut Cartridge.  The sweet little stitched hearts that I stamped all around the oval shape are from this brand new My Creative Time ~ Beary Special Thoughts stamp set.  I colored them in lightly with a pink ~ Prismacolor Pencil.


The "Guess how much I love you?" sentiment is also from this set.  You are going to love it - there are the greatest sentiments in this set!


Now, for the second half of my sentiment, I used the stamp that says "I love you Beary much!" However, I taped off the "I love you" part and first stamped "Beary much!", then I taped off the "much!" and stamped "Beary" a couple more times.  


So now the whole thing reads "Guess how much I love you? . . . Beary Beary Beary much!"  Isn't that so cute?  If you've never tried to do this with your stamps, give it a shot. You can create just about anything when you put your mind to it!

*****GIVEAWAY ALERT*****
Emma has a few GREAT giveaways to give to THREE LUCKY peeps!  1st GRAND prize ~ the "Teddy Bear Parade" cartridge AND this newest stamp set "Beary Special Thoughts". 2nd prize ~ the "Create A Critter 2" cartridge and "Beary Special Thoughts" stamp set.  3rd prize ~ this newest stamp set "Beary Special Thoughts".  How FUN is this?!?  All you have to do is leave your comments on each designer's blog.  The more blogs you comment on, the BETTER your chance at winning! Random.org will pick all the winners on Tuesday.  So you have until Sunday, Sept. 30th at midnight to get all of your comments in.  AND PLEASE don't forget to include a way for us to contact you just in case YOU are one of the lucky winners. Good Luck!   :)
***********************************

Well my creative friends, that's it for me.  I hope you enjoyed my "Beary Special" card today!  And here is the newest stamp set ~ "Beary Special Thoughts" ~ on sale now!


Your next stop in the hop is the wonderful Miss Cathryn.  But in case you get lost along the way, here is the entire blog hop lineup:

Cassandra (that's me!)

Have a great weekend everyone!  I will be in Atlanta for the Circle Mania event.  Hopefully I will have some fun photos to share with you next week!  See you soon...
