Embrace your Inner Betty with Simply Challenged Challenges..


It's time for our first challenge over at the Simply Challenged Challenges Blog, each month we'll have 4 month long challenges running, so you've got plenty to join in, and plenty of time to do so.

On the 7th of Every Month there will be a challenge hosted by one of the SCC DT, todays is Hosted by Betty - Embrace your Inner Betty:  Your challenge is to create a project using any of the 'Betty' images from SimplyBStamps.net to show us your Inner Betty, we want to see what Betty's images mean to you, so you might want to make a fun and quirky card, or something spooky and beautiful, it's up to you!!

For my card i've used the stunningly beautiful UK Betty, I have to say i'd love to have a dress like hers. So we've just had a wonderful holiday weekend celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, so all the Union Flags on my card seemed very appropriate.  Embracing the Inner Betty to me means creating something fun and quirky, with bold bright colours and a bit of a twist. So I decided to give UK Betty two tone hair, which i think looks pretty funky!  On the rest of the card i used a couple of my favourite things, punchinella, washi tape, bakers twine and buttons.  I couldn't resist adding the little flag, it really adds to the celebration feel.  

Hopefully you'll be inspired to join us in our challenge, check out the rest of the SCC DT's beautiful creations to get some more inspiration.  You've got until the 6th July to add you project to the linky tool on the SCC Blog, so loads of time to join in.  We'll also have a new challenge for you next week!!

Bye for now
