Batty Betty Birthday Hop

Happy Birthday Betty Boo! Hope we surprised you! Many current and former Simply Betty Stamps DT gals got together to have a fun blog hop in honor of one of our favorite ladies. I used one of my fave SBS images, Pipper, to create my card for our fearless leader.

I used my watercolor markers for Pipper. I made her uber bright and bold, just like Betty! I also used the new stencil I got from Crafter’s Workshop that I had used on my Bombshell Stamps card from yesterday.

Looking at Pipper’s hair is reminding me that I am in serious need of a dye job! Look at her little cupcake clip! So cute!

So Betty, I hope you have a fang-tastic Birthday. Put all of your stresses out of your mind (ok, try to!) for at least today. Put on your party hat and celebrate! We love you Betty Boo!!!
For your hoping pleasure, here is the entire hop list:
Alison (me!)
Enjoy the rest of the surprise Birthday hop. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Ooh, I love the way you colored her! I need a dye job too! My last one didn't turn out very well, haha...I ended up with cherry red on top and the rest black.:)
Love Pipper's attitude, and your colouring is amazing (as always) :)

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
