Beach Bum - Teddy Bear Parade Blog Hop Day 1

Happy Saturday everyone I am BEARY happy to see you!  Welcome to the Teddy Bear Parade Blog Hop!!  A bunch of us, fell in love with the Teddy Bear Parade Cricut Cartridge when it was released, and Miss Janis came up with the brilliant idea to have a blog hop with all our fellow teddy bear lovers, so here we are!  It is day one of the Blog Hop, and if you have come from the beautiful and talented Mary's blog, then you are in the right spot.  Here is what I came up with:



Isn't he adorable??!!  I cut him and all his accessories at 3 1/2 inches.  The sun is from Doodlecharms and the clouds are from Hello Kitty Greetings.  The cardstock is a big mix of SU, Recollections, Cricut paper, Bazzil - hmm I think that's it ;)  I tore the layers at the bottom - I think they look lots like sand and waves.  I did some doodling around with my Sakura Jelly roll pens, but I just realised that I didn't doodle on the bear - GASP!  I always doodle on my die cuts - I will have to go fix that before I send anyone this card...  The perfect sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps - A Day at the Beach, so many of the sentiments in that set would have been perfect for this card - I had a hard time narrowing it down to just one.  You can buy your set of these stamps HERE



The next stop in the hop is Elaine's blog, and I know you will love the fabulous project she created.  I have included a list of all the crafters who are playing with us today, just in case you get lost, and don't forget to come back tomorrow, when we'll have a whole new line up of people, sharing some BEARY cute projects :)
