October Calendar Girls

Welcome to our October Calendar Girls' Blog Hop. It’s absolutely amazing when you do a Google search the interesting facts you may find. Such a find is special and unique occasions throughout the year!!! These unique holidays are our inspiration. As Neil Sedaka sang in his song "Calendar Girls" - "Romeo and Juliet on Halloween!!"

So my creation is for the holiday on the 11th "Take Your Teddy Bear to Work Day"! 

When I first saw this "holiday" I immediately thought of using my Teddy Bear Parade Cricut cartridge!  So here is my card:

I have to tell you that no matter what bear I choose to use from this cartridge, I just smile everytime I make something using one of the cuts.  Isn't he just the cutest little thing???

I cut my Dr. Bear at 3 1/2" and used Black, Chocolate, White, Juniper, and Ruby cardstock.  The background of the card was made using our Babycakes paper.  I haven't placed a sentiment on the card anywhere because I'm not quite sure what I'm going to use it for.  I think it will be a "Get Well" card - thought that would be a good idea.

We are offering some fabulous blog candy to 2 lucky winner!  Just comment and give some bloggie love to each of the Calendar Girls. For our blog candy, Lynne is offering a personalized mug mat monogrammed with your first initial. Please, don't forget to comment on all blogs along with leaving your email address that we may contact the winner. You get to chose either fall colors or Halloween.  Also, Lynne is offering a breast cancer awareness bracelet to one lucky winner.

Your next stop along the way of the calendar is Christine of Creative Living with Christine.

Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on November 9, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
