A Shy Bear For 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, and she died very unexpectedly at the end
of June - she was only 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 are a creation of Lynne Stansbery, a fabulous artist at Squigglefly. There is a whole section in the store, with so many fun images!) Sadly, Melissa didn't get the chance to see the cards that Charlene made.

Charlene wanted to do a special blog-hop and dedicate it to Melissa. The Squigglefly DT wanted to support Charlene as we all love Charlene and we all love Shy Bears.

Charlene has listed more info about Melissa on her personal post HERE. Please visit all the blogs and be sure to leave a comment. One lucky winner will receive 3 free Squigglefly images of their choice.

For my card, I have used Angel Bear.


You probably came to my blog from Tammy's blog and now it is time to see what Debbie created by clicking HERE.

Thanks for participating in our special tribute to Melissa. Hugz to all!
