If you have never seen Simply Betty's stamps then you NEED to get over there and check out all the cuteness going on and join in on their awesome challenges too on their Challenge Blog for your chance to win all kinds of goodies!

I found SB stamps through my good Friend Jess from my scrap diary, she is a BIG time enabler lol (thanks Jess!) and I was immediately in LOVE! They are so fun and unique and that is exactly what I was looking for! I am slowly trying to work my way through the different lines of stamps hehe I have a goal to have them all! I love all of the lines but my FAVORITE of all time is the Jude and the Rockers! Talk about total cuteness! 
Here are a few projects I have made using Simply Betty Stamps......

 This was one of my first  Wiper cards ( I love these things!)
Here it is open!
This is a little 6 x 6 notebook I made for my daughter just to have!
She loved it so much and so did her BFF that I am making her one too!
All the sentiments I used are from my Besties for Life and Text Talk stamp sets! Here is the inside cover! I wanted close ups of these cuties! Here you will see Lilly, Britney and Ariel! I love the way they looked stamped on Kraft cardstock!
(thanks Jess for the inspiration!)
{I spilled a little water on it and took the pics before it dried lol}
I stamped on of my sentiments on each page
This super cutie is Gothic Ragdoll Lola from the new Sweet Gothic Kids Halloween  Line! I made a cute little purse card holder with a set of cards, I like having things like this on hand to give as gifts! For this one I used my "Are you Ready to Rock" stamp set!
These are the cards on the inside I left them blank on the inside so they can add their own message!
This is a super cute and quick Wiper card I made using the exclusive Skeleton Betty digi stamp! This little cutie is one of my favorites!
These are two 4x4 wooden magnets that I made for my Daughter Ashley and my son Daryl! I have a tutorial on how to make them HERE and also a Challenge going on called "Are you Ready to Rock" which is also my stamp set that used for the sentiments!
Simply Betty is my Fabulous Sponsor for this challenge and the prize is two clear stamps from this line! Ali and Lilly! Isn't that too awesome!

I just love these stamps and I know you will see many many more projects from me using them! Especially since I just ordered 3 of her new release OMG you got to see them!
