Our Fabulous Sponsor for this weeks
 Color Inspired Challenge
Black with Orange + Lime and/or Purple

Simply Betty Stamps was born in 2010 when I had to close down my actual store due to my youngest being a preemie. I was home, with a brand new baby and felt so helpless just being home without working. I knew how to draw and had always wanted to be a stamp designer, but how the heck to get it up and running was something I knew nothing about. I started blogging, got on my first DT position and learned all about the digi world. Still didn't know how to go about making digis, as I am totally old school and go paper and pencil all the way! I had to hire artists that new how to make "clean lines" or "line-art" for digis. I started my business with other artist rather than drawing myself as again, I had no clue on how to do it. I started googling and searching the web on how to and here we are three years later. Most my images are drawn and made up from my own little family, mostly my kids and they are named after them as well. Moving forward now with a few artists still on board but myself included in the art work as I love nothing more than to sketch something out, "line-art it" print it and color it! I love what I do, I absolutely love more than anything the dear friends and fans I have and the joy I get from their friendships more than anything! 

This week's PRIZE is ...
a $10.00 Gift Certificate to Simply Betty Stamps!

Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!


Hi my name is Christine Ingram. I have been crafting for such a long time as I have been drawing since I was about six years old and I used to make dolls clothes and furniture for my toys from old shoe boxes and glue ,cloth etc. I later went into sewing and Knitting, could crochet and pretty much look at most things and go home and create my version using re-cycled things before it became the thing to do. I trained as a Window Dresser on leaving school, but left to have my family. I used to do a lot of pencil drawing and even went back to school to sit with the kids to get my A pass GCSE in Art ... lol. I even had a small exhibition of some of my work in the local library. Have been card making nearly 10 yrs now. I was so happy to be asked to do the Guest Designer for Love to Create and waited to see what was in store. Wow a Simply Betty Stamp and its Halloween. EEK!! Never done one before this is my first. I have thoroughly loved this it has been a wonderful experience. I hope you all love this as much as I have creating it. Happy Halloween ....BOO!!
