Shy Bears - Blog Hop

It's Time for a Squigglefly Blog Hop but this one is very special one.
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 colours . . . just Shy Bears because she loved them all! (In case you're not familiar with them, Shy Bears 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 will be announced on Monday - so please check back at the Squigglefly challenge.
