Yep, it's time for another Simply Betty Double Whammy Release Blog Hop!

{sniff sniff... throat choking up... chin quivering... tear falling}

...and a little Thanksgiving  Jude & His Shenanigan Crew.

Betty is doing the giveaway for this hop a little differently, so you should start at
Simply Betty Stamps
first to get all of the details & what to include in your comment... of course we all LOVE comments, but the giveaway will be drawn from the SBS blog :)

If you've arrived from Angela's blog, then you are on the right track!


First up, we have Mikey & Lizzie from Jude & His Shenanigan Crew Thanksgiving :)  Yes, I know... they are TERRIBLY cute, and NOT creeped out at all.  Does it count that I originally was going to put a HUGE SCARLET LETTER "A" on Lizzie's bodice?!  ;)  Kinda cheeky, me thinks... but I held back... for once :)

And here is my favorite of the Victorian Beauties Halloween line:
James the Zombie!!
Don't you just LOVE him?!  I was channeling Creepy Glowbugg for this one... can you tell?  She loves zombies.  And yes, I know... this really isn't appropriate for many people, but I think I know what card to send Glo when she's feeling under the weather... LOL!
Love ya' Glo!

I love the whole "oopsie" look on his face {giggle}... it makes me smile.
And I think I got the blood pool about right :)
