All About Betty Blog Hop

The lovely Eulanda came up with the idea for all of the gals from The Burtonesque Dolls, Simply Betty Stamps and Simply Betty Challenges blogs to put together a surprise blog hop of our very own to honour our wonderful Boss Lady SIMPLY BETTY.

Eulanda is kicking off the hop for you but if you're already on the hop you should have arrived here from the amazing Nicole's blog.

This hop is ALLLLLLLLLLLLL about Betty and since October is Betty's favorite month and there are sooooo many exciting things happening, we decided to be a step ahead of the game and do it just before?!! This way we can get things warmed up for the whole October and Halloween theme - in case you haven't gotten into the mood yet - LOL. We also decided to only use the Emo Betty images from Simply Betty Stamps to make sure the spotlight was all on BETTY.

Betty is a super generous lady who I have gotten to know through my computer - we've shared laughs, frustrations and deadlines together. When I actually got to spend the afternoon with Betty a few weeks ago in California it was one of the highlights of my trip - she's just as much fun IRL as she is on the other side of my keyboard.

For my card I decided to go with a lighter and brighter feel - to match Betty's bubbly nature. I know she loves Halloween but I just wanted to make this card a little more upbeat!

I know the rest of Betty's DTs feel the same affection for our leader as I do - which is why I know there will be some AMAZING Betty creations along the hop. But please note because this is an appreciation blog hop there are no prizes - it's just a little bit of fun and to let Betty know how we feel about her.

So LET'S KEEP HOPPING!! Your next stop is the lovely Patricia's blog.

Love the "alternative" color palette - a perfect compliment to Betty's personality, as you said, and that senti is totally perfect for this card! Your coloring, as always, is gorgeous, and I love the webby border punch.
