    Simply Betty Challenge #7

    YAY, today is FINALLY Friday!

    This week felt like it was never ending.   I think it was due to the field trip I went on, on Monday. WOW, junior high kids are annoying.   Anyways, I survived and I finally had a chance to play.  I am totally loving these Simple Betty images.  This week's challenge is to pull out some rubber and combine it with one of our Digis!  WOW, this is challenging for me.  I haven't used rubber stamps in who knows how long.  (Good one Betty)

    Here's my example:

    This is Prezzies For Lola Digi you can buy her at Simply Betty Stamps.   The paper I use is Everyone Loves Christmas by Echo Park.   I love this paper it's so fun to create with.   It's so out of the box for Christmas colors.   I love challenge myself to use non-christmas colors. Super FUN.   If you were wondering were to find this beautiful paper. You can find it at Simply Betty Stamps.  Cool huh?!   One stop shopping.   Also,   Simply Betty Stamps will be busy starting next week! A special "Surprise" release, followed by another and another and so on. WOW, I'm tired already.  HAHA! But that's not all, we have the 12 days of Christmas starting Nov. 26th on Black Friday! Woop woop! Of course there will be wheels and deals!  Stay tuned.
