All About Betty Blog Hop

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


This hop is ALLLLLLLLLLLLL about Betty and since October is Betty's favorite month 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!!  This hop is dedicated to Betty to show her how much we appreciate her and her quirky art.

Since Halloween is Betty's favorite time of year you will be seeing mostly, if not all, Halloween cards decked out in Simply Betty Style!

Betty, I am so appreciative of your friendship, your humor, and your generosity.  I am constantly inspired by your creativity, your determination, and your passion.  I am so honored to be a member of your Design Team!  I am better with art than with words so hopefully my little creation will demonstrate how I feel about you. 

My tribute project uses Witch Betty from the Emo Halloweenies.  They can be purchased here.  Betty is colored with Copic markers, embellished with Distress Stickles, and enhanced with Distress Inks.  I used Seven Gypsies DP, metal swirl paper clip embellies, and Halloween Journal Paper (sorry, forgot the brand, will post later).  The rose stickers are Creative Imaginations.  The pinch of reds and oranges are simply distress inks applied directly from the pad to glossy paper. 

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 lovin' from you anyway!!

So LET'S GET HOPPING!! You should have arrived here from Jennifer's blog.  If not, go back to the beginning for your first stop, Eulanda!!  If you get lost along the way, the blog roll is listed below.  If you've been following the order of the hop, your next stop should be the lovely Suzi.
