National Teddy Bear DayTeddy bears are, of course, named after US President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt. The name came about after a 1902 hunting expedition. The hunt had found no game, so at the end of the day someone brought out a baby bear and suggested that Roosevelt might like to shoot it instead. Roosevelt understandably felt that this was not exactly sporting and refused. The incident was illustrated in a newspaper cartoon entitled "Drawing the Line" - which also referred to the political situation at the time. An enterprising New York toymaker saw an opportunity and brought out a cute stuffed bear named "Teddy's Bear". The rest, as the say, is history.

To celebrate National Teddy Bear Day, Jen from Jen's Crafty Corner has graciously organized this fun blog hop showcasing, you guessed it ... Teddy Bears! So get your springy shoes on and start hoping.
If you've arrived here from Eva, you're on the right track. If not, check out the list below and start at the beginning!
For this blog hop I chose this teddy bear digi by Dustin Pike. I'm calling this card "Tub Time with Teddy". I used Winnie the Pooh papers from Creative Memories, added my fave Glossy Accents with some sparkles and to create the illusion of bubbles, I used White Perfect Puff by The Artful Stamper.
For some special touches I added ribbon by Pebbles Inc., rhinestones, flowers and a clear pebble with a Winnie the Pooh bee underneath. Ta dah!
Before you hop on over to Candice and check out her teddy creation, make sure you leave some love cause you never know if you'll be the winner of a $10 gift certificate from Dude Time Doodles! (The winner will be chosen by True Random Generator and will be selected Tuesday, September 13th).
