My Creative Time :: Beary Special Blog Hop!

If you're looking for my BIG GIVEAWAY post, click here
BUT I've got some fabulous news regarding my giveaway
Next Thursday happens to be my birthday! So in honor of that, I'm going to give away these items regardless of the number of blog followers OR Facebook fans!! All you have to do to be entered in one of the four giveaways is to leave a comment on the giveaway post by Tuesday at midnight PST. On Wednesday, I'll pick the winners through Random.org and announce them right here on Thursday the 4th!

Don't forget, I've got some fabulous prizes to give away from the following companies!
So, what are you waiting for...let's start spreading the word!! 

Good morning! It's Friday and today over at My Creative Time we have a "beary" special surprise for you!
If you've just come from Jayne's blog, then you're hopping in the right direction! If you just came to my blog to visit this morning, head on over to Emma's blog to start at the beginning of the 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!

And with that...here's my "beary" cute project!
This card base was created within Silhouette Studio by welding the two shapes to together to create the base. I used the internal offset feature to create the top layer and then just created a square to fit in the middle. :)
This super cute little bear is the Basic Bear from Bear Hugs by Art and Scraps. I cut it with Make the Cut and my Silhouette Cameo.
Supplies: 
Stampin' Up Early Espresso cardstock
PaperTrey Ink Vintage Cream cardstock
My Mind's Eye Away We Go 6x6 paper stack
My Creative Time Beary Special Thoughts
Bear Hugs by Art and Scraps Basic Bear cut file
Seeing Spots Cuttlebug embossing folder
Liz's PaperLoft Boutique hemp twine
misc buttons

***GIVEAWAY ALERT***
Emma has a few GREAT giveaways to give to THREE LUCKY peeps!

1st GRAND PRIZE - "Teddy bear Parade" Cricut cartridge AND this newest "Beary Special Thoughts" stamp set!
2nd PRIZE - "Create A Critter 2" Cricut cartridge and this newest "Beary Special Thoughts" stamp set!
3rd PRIZE - "Beary Special Thoughts" stamp set!

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

You're next stop on the hop is the super talented Katie!

And if you get lost somewhere along the way, here's the complete blog lineup!
