A SBS sketch challenge!

Hello my peeps!

So there are some fun things happening over at Simply Betty Stamps that I want to share with you and the big news for the day is that we are starting up a monthly challenge on the SBS blog! This first one up is a sketch challenge which I used as inspiration for my card today. The challenge runs through Thursday, July 29th at 11:59 pm est. and the winner gets to be a SBS Guest Designer during the month of August, which of course means free images to play with! Woot. woot!
Now of course you'll have to use a Simply Betty image to play along but there are plenty to choose from, whether you go for the fab Emo Kids in rubber or the DT Divas, My Pets or Victorian Vampires all in digi form... it's up to you. :)

Betty is also currently running a teaser contest on the blog for the next Emo Kids release coming up next week. Take a peek at the snippets she is sharing and see if you can guess what the new theme will be... you just might win the whole release in digis! And I gotta say, they are wicked cute and I just know if you liked the first ones you will love this second release! ;)

Oh and one more thing to check out while you're there is the official SBS team announcement... a few more amazingly talented ladies have joined the fun and we would love for you to give them a big, warm welcome!

Alrighty, time for me to get to bed... later gators!
