Christmas in July

Lately I've been right into Simply Betty images; even have had a couple custom ones done (projects to come soon!).  Some of my favourites are the Betty Boudoir and Betty Boo collections.  With so many Christmas in July challenges going on I decided to put a twist on this Birthday Boudoir Betty.  Not only did I use her in a non-traditional way, but I decided to do some non-traditional colours with my Christmas theme too.

Betty recently celebrated her 5th anniversary with her fun stamps, and released a whole Birthday Betty line-up.  Here are a couple other ones I created.

I think this one using Birthday Goddess is one of my favourite cards I've done....

and this one using Elegant Birthday portrait was my first ever easel card!

I'd love to be part of Betty's team, so if you're so inclined please leave me some love and let her know I'd be a great addition!!  Have a great day!
