MCT Beary Special Blog Hop!

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"!  So, you should have arrived here from Jeanne's blog, but if you happened upon here by chance, you'll want to head over to Emma's blog to take this from the beginning!


I used the new Cricut Teddy Bear Parade cartridge for my card today.  It's perfect paired with Emma's new Beary Special Thoughts stamp set!  My card base is cut at 5" from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge.  I cut the coordinating square layer, along with another square 1/4" larger and sewed them together.



The cute bear is cut at 3 3/4".  I cut the face mask twice, so that I could put a patterned paper on top of the solid colored straps.  I also used a Peachy Keen stamp for the eyes instead of the ones that come with the cartridge.  The top right corner of my card looked a little bare, so I cut some more of the heart layers, at 6".



I made this card to give to a good friend of mine a couple of days ago, before she was heading in to have a liver biopsy.  The sentiment from Beary Special Thoughts was exactly what I wanted to say to her.  Here is a look at the entire adorable stamp set:


**GIVEAWAY ALERT**
Emma has a few GREAT giveaways to give to 3 LUCKY peeps!
GRAND PRIZE:  Teddy Bear Parade Cartridge and this newest stamp set, Beary Special Thoughts
2nd Prize:  Create a Critter cartridge and Beary Special Thoughts
3rd Prize:  the new Beary Special Thoughts stamp set

How FUN is this???  All you have to do is leave your comments on the designer's blogs.  The more blogs you comment on, the BETTER your chances are at winning!  Random.org will pick the winners on Tuesday!  So you have until Sunday, September 30th at midnight to get all of your comments in!  PLEASE don't forget to include a way for us to contact you just in case YOU are one of the lucky winders!  Good luck!

Your next stop is my sweet and talented friend Kim!

Here is the complete lineup:
