Simply Betty Stamps Facebook Group Freebie!

Good afternoon! I wanted to share with you a card I made using the fabulous freebie image for the Simply Betty Stamps FB Group! Simply Betty Stamps once in a while SPOILS the SBS FB Group with a Freebie! There used to be full challenges with the free image, but this time we did a very quick creation that was for this weekend only and you just needed to be sure to post your completed projects by 8pm PST today, Sunday October the 19th.

This time the wonderful image we got to play with is Bat Queen Betty, and I had a blast working with her! Right now Simply Betty Stamps is also celebrating their 13 Days of Halloween! The current challenge is Traditional Halloween Colors - Orange, Purple, Lime Green and Black Anything Goes. When I saw this challenge posted I jotted it down, in fact this is the first 13 Days of Halloween Challenges I could play along with so far this month, but I have been keeping track of them all. Life and work have been to crazy to join in on the fun until this afternoon so I am so excited that I saw that these two challenges would work so well together! I used this fun Halloween Parade Designer Series Paper from Doodlebug Designs and paired it with some fun Halloween colored cardstock. I also added a touch of bling, which always helps! I just thought that her hair would look regal if I colored it in Gray and then the rest sort of fell into place.

Thank you so much for checking out my creation today, I had so much fun with this challenge and I love how this creation came out! I hope you have a great day!

My first card is above featuring this fabulous new Funny Bone that makes me smile! I paired it with lots of pinks and this fun Riley Image, Fire Breathing Riley! I love how the Riley Images compliment so many of the amazing Funny Bones line! Since the Funny Bone was about fire it was only natural that I just HAD to use oranges and yellows, I thought it would make this guy pop even more than he already does!

My second card features just one of our new Funny Bones, this one made me giggle when I read it. Again, I am not a coffee drinker, but this sentiment really made me think of several people I know! I know so many people who do take their Coffee 'Seriously', that's just the perfect way to put it! I paired this new Funny Bone with this fun Coffee Cup image which is also new and I added it to some calm designer series paper!

For my card I decided to use this fabulous new Funny Bone about Shoes! I simply laughed out loud when I saw this Funny Bone and matching Shoe stamp and I had to use it! That's right, this wonderful Shoe image is a new stamp too! I know over the years these types of shows have baffled me, in fact I have sent messages to friends with some 'OMG' comments when I come across crazy shoes. Could I walk in a pair? Probably for an event if I wanted to....do I? Nope. It's just not going to happen, but man some shoes do look good!

Today we are kicking off the challenges at Riley and Company! Every other week we share a creation for our challenges and it's always a blast! This week Kelly is hosting our Riley and Company Challenge which is 'Off the Edge'!

For my card I decided to use more than one of the fabulous Riley image in our store and I picked two: The Moosehatter and Sophie in Wonderland! I wasn't sure where to start for this challenge, but when I started thinking about images that would be off the page I just HAD to use the The Moosehatter! I colored him in shades or orange and green I thought he would use bright colors together and of course I added Sophie in the traditional character colors. I simply love this set of images, they are so much fun!

They come with so many great stamps for a fabulous price and the images are always crisp and clean when using them! Since this weeks challenge is a One Layer card I didn't pop anything up...but I think popping the tires up would have been a lot of fun! Instead I used lots of bright colors to create a fun and cheery creation! It's hard to see, but there are score lines framing the image and double lines above and below Clown Car Riley too.

We were asked to create a card or project for our swap sister and send them a package of goodies with the theme 'Summerween' or Halloween in the summer! I had the pleasure of getting Kelly Halverson as my swap partner. I had a blast putting a box together for Kelly and I hope she enjoyed everything! For my box I was amazed at all my fabulous goodies! Kelly sent all sorts of amazing papers both in 12x12 sheets and 6x6 pads plus she sent my favorite chocolates, lacey edging, die cuts, buttons, and sticker sheets! I was certainly spoiled to say the least! I love everyone Kelly!
Plus, she made this stunning card using one of the Simply Betty Sand Witch! I just had to show you how awesome this is! I love how she created this scene and I just love how she used sand on the card as well for the foreground. This really turned out fabulously! Thank you so much for an amazing package!
