"Name That Bear Contest" ~ John Doe now has a Name

The name has been drawn for my "Name That Bear Contest".  John Doe is no longer but is now known as "Professor Muzzle Scruff" !

I had a total of 197 entries (including those who got multiple entries).....WOW, that's a lot!

Thank You so Much to all who entered and played along with my contest, it was so fun seeing all the names that were picked for John Doe....

I typed them all up, put them in a bowl and picked out a winning name for the bear...

The winner is Professor Muzzle Scruff which was submitted by Amy from Cottage Prims/Bumble Bee Lane...

Amy's Comment was....

"Hubby picked Professor Muzzle Scruff.
I'm a follower of both blogs.Warm Blessings!~Amy"

So...Amy, if you will email me your address, Prof. Muzzle Scruff will start his journey to your home....

Help me in Congratulating Amy on her win!

On a side note:  I am going to save the bowl full of entries for awhile.  As a way of saying Thank You for all the wonderful entries in my contest, I will pick a Winner a Week, for 4 consecutive weeks.  The random drawing will be held each Thursday starting April 28th, the winner will receive something handmade by me.  If you are selected as one of the winners, you will have just 24 hrs to reply or another name will be drawn...

Thanks Again to you ALL for entering my Contest/Giveaway!
