Squigglefly 'Shy Bear' Tribute Blog Hop-this one's for You Melissa~


Thank you for joining us for the Squigglefly 'Shy Bears' Blog Hop. This hop is dedicated to Melissa Chettle and her son Justin. Melissa was a friend of Squigglefly Design Team member Charlene. She died very unexpectedly at the end of June, at 43 years young!

At the end of April, Melissa asked Charlene to make her a bunch of Shy Bears cards - any image, any theme, any colors . . . just Shy Bears because she loved them all! (In case you're not familiar with them, Shy Bears http://www.squigglefly.com/index.php/shop/category/17 are a creation of Lynne Stansbery's, a fabulous artist at Squigglefly. There is a whole section in the store, with so many fun images!)

Melissa didn't get the chance to see the cards that Charlene made but we wanted to support Charlene in her request to dedicate this hop to Melissa. Melissa, here's to you . . . R.I.P.

Charlene has listed more info about Melissa on her personal post. Please visit all the blogs and be sure to leave a comment. One lucky winner will receive 3 free images of their choice.  The WINNER of the blog hop will be announced MONDAY morning at the same time as the winner for the weekly Squigglefly challenge.  Please leave your email addresses in your comments so we can reach you for the prizes!

The Image I used is called Shy Bear Broken Heart-He's mounted with foam dots on top of a soft flowered background.  With a ribbon and faceted accent it's striking.  I added a thoughtful sentiment to the inside for the family. If you've come here from Debbie's super creation, you're on the right track!  Now on to your next stop, our fearless leader Holly.  Be prepared to be amazed!
