ALL ABOUT BETTY BLOG HOP

The gals from The Burtonesque Dolls, Simply Betty Stamps and Simply Betty Challenges blogs figured it was a good time to put together a blog hop of our very own:

SIMPLY BETTY.

This hop is ALLLLLLLLLLLLL about Betty and since October is Betty's favorite month (as it should be!) and there are sooooo many exciting things happening, why not do it just before?!!  This way we can get things warmed up for the whole October and Halloween theme.  Kinda like an appie!! 

And since Halloween is her favorite time of year you will be seeing mostly, if not all Halloween cards and we have used only Betty Emo's images.  

For my tribute to Betty, of course I HAD to use the Witchy Betty stamp!  After all, Betty just happens to be my Halloweenie Soul Sistah :)  I am sooooooo glad we found each other via the WWW.  She is just one of the sweetest gals around... pairing that with the fact that she has some sah-weet stamps & digis... and then throw the whole love-for-Halloween into the mix... how could I NOT dig this chick?!!  Thanks, B... thanks for asking me to be a part of your DT... thanks for your lovely comments... but most of all, thanks for your lovely self :)

Stamps:  Witch Betty (SBS), sentiment (retired TAC)
Paper:  Neenah white; DCWV green, Penelope, Kraft & black (TAC)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo
Other:  Copic markers, PTI woodgrain texture plate, Tim Holtz edge die, black gem
And wouldn't you know that this card just so happens to also work for my HDH058 Magical Mayhem challenge!!  Yeay... I actually got to play along with my own challenge... 1st time in a long time!

Without further ado, let's check out some more inspiring and creative cards from all the ladies.  Please note because this is an appreciation blog hop there are no prizes.  It's just for fun but the ladies wouldn't mind some luvin' from you anyway!!

So LET'S GET HOPPING!!  Your first stop is Eulanda!!!

Lol Barb, my other comment has vanished (:P) but I still love this. The link to Creepy's blog doesn't work though, I get a 403 Forbidden page instead. Just what is she doing in there :P

Barb, this is utterly fantastic! And, of course, her skin should be green! Which reminds me of one of my favorite plays ever...Wicked. Did you see it?

You and Betty are definitely kindred spirits. She loves me even though I'm not a macabre kinda gal. hee hee

Hugs,
Lisa
