Beary Sweet Challenge #32: Tic-Tac-Toe!

Our Beary Sweet Challenge #32 is up and Running!

On behalf of myself, and our Beary Sweet Girls, we would like to send out BIG thanks to everyone who joined our BSC #31 - we are so thrilled to see each and every one of you play along! We'll announce our random winner and Top 3 honorees on Thursday, August 18th. Thank you!

On the 15th of the month, we post a new challenge on our Challenge blog.  This time we're challenging you to play tic-tac-toe and pick three in a row!  So easy, and super fun!!!

Make a project using any row with your 3 favorite embellishments and technique - horizontal, vertical or diagonal. For example, "lace-distress-glitter" or "glitter-flower-paper piecing". You can even use "pearl-charm-glitter"! Please make sure you let us know on your blog post which row you've used.

This challenge runs through August 31th at 11:59pm EST. We will announce the random gift voucher winner and our "Beary Sweet Top 3" on September 4th.

Here are the simple, standard "rules" to play - PLEASE READ:
  • Become a follower of our DT and Challenge Blog if you aren't already (don't forget this one - it's disqualified a few folks already!);
  • Link your challenge entry post (not your blog "home page") or your online gallery submission with our Inlinkz frog below.
  • Link back to this challenge post (not just our blog "home page") on your blog
  • Only one (1) entry per person. In fairness to all players, if you enter this challenge more than once all second, third, etc. entries will be deleted without notice. Links to projects/cards posted before August 15th will not be eligible.
Additional information:
  • Feel free to combine with other challenges;
  • All NEW project types are welcome as long as they follow this sketch challenge (cards, scrapbook layouts, etc.);

    We can't wait to see all of your fabulous creations

    Until next time,

    Beary Sweet Designs Website Launched

    Hello Beary Sweet Friends!  Sorry I haven't been around on these parts lately.  I promise to get back into the swing of things here shortly.  Summer has me busy with the kids, and with the opening of our new sister site, I've been busier than ever.
    Click the logo to visit the new website!

    What's that, you didn't here?  Well, here is a brief synopsis...  For those of you that have cutting machines, or a Cricut machine with compatible software, I am now designing my own cutting files.  I've been designing my own stuff for years, so I thought I'd share my files and designs with everyone.  I'm also creating DIGITAL STAMPS!!!  I've always been intregued with graphic arts (I believe I missed my true calling), and I've since learned how to convert my .wpc files to all the other formats out there for the various cutting machines on the market.  I'm just starting to learn MTC and SCAL, and I don't own, and very rarely every used a Cricut machine.  Sorry friends, I'm a Pazzles Chick all the way!

    Our sister site is called BEARY SWEET DESIGNS.  You can check it out HERE!  We also have a facebook fan page that you can find HERE!  I can't produce files every day because I have other obligations that come first.  I do LOVE making them though.  It's my creative outlet when I can't get to my paper crafting supplies.  I do post a free file every Thursday too.

    We would also love to see you share your creations on either of our Fan Pages, so be sure to upload those photos!

    I'll have lots to catch you up on in the next few days.  I don't want to overwhelm your blog roll all at one time.  We even have a brand new Guest Designer that I am super excited to introduce (if you didn't already know).

    Until next time!
