Basket Bear



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. Sadly, Melissa 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 colours . . . just Shy Bears because she loved them all! If you are not familiar with
 Shy Bears, they are created by Lynne Stansbery, a fabulous artist at Squigglefly and my card today features Basket Bear. There is a whole section in the store with so many fun images for all occasions!

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. Listed below is the hop order in case you'd like to follow along.
