Lola Addams

Surprise! Two posts in one today and this one for a very special gal... it's Betty's Birthday from Simply Betty Stamps!! Her design team has thrown together a surprise blog hop in her honor and as the November guest I am very happy to join. So without further adieu...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BETTY!! :D


Birthday Blog Hops are always fun way to celebrate. :D You should have arrived here from LEA but if you want to start at the beginning then that would be with SUZI.


I made this card to send to Betty and wanted a cheerful yet creepy feel so I used lots of black with a touch of sunny yellow. The image I used is Lola Addams from Simply Betty Stamps, of course, and the moon was a Martha Stewart label that I colored in with N0, N2, N3 and N4.

Most of the card is paper from My Mind's Eye but I did add a skull charm in the lower left corner and binoculars which is a rub-on. I attempted to add faux stitching around the outside but neither the black nor the white showed up very well... so look closely for those details. Te he


Thanks for stopping by and your next stop on the hop is over to LADY B. Then be sure to check back the rest of the weekend as it's going to be busy with lots of new inspiration coming your way!!
