Valentines Bucket Hop

I've only done one blog hop (only a few days ago actually!), I've joined in a few but never actually taken part. There is a fantastic Facebook group I belong to called Simply B Stamps Fan group, it's full of very lovely people and the very talented Betty (whos wonderful stamps are found here)
For Valentines day we were to send a valentines bucket to our 'bucket buddy' that we were all paired up with. I had such fun and Corinne kindly sent me an image to use to make a card with too. My partner was Trish, she lives in Canada and I'm in the UK so we were a little worried that we would get our valentines in time.It arrived with on the 12th Feb, with 2 days to spare! Yay!
I really love everything she put in my box, absolutely all of it! The card is very cute too.

this is the lovely box that all my bits came in -

There are so many little bits and bobs in here that I just don't know where to start! I loved it all. There were lots of packs of stickers (great owls ones!), ribbon, gems, a awesome shower cap, sparkly socks and the beautiful little heart shaped boxes (above). I was ridiculously excited when I discovered things in them too! The little bits in the darling little bottles won't make it onto cards, they will be going on my nails!

Ellie is modelling the shower cap, the owl sticker is now on my kindle case and they are my feet modelling the socks!
Thanks again Trish x

Now if you have happened on my blog by chance, then you can see me right at the bottom of the list and you should really go back and start at the beginning to see the posts that everyone else has done for their valentines buddies.

Betty's Burlesque 2 Blog hop

You should have reached me from Jills blog -
This is the first time I've ever joined in a blog hop like this, it's fun! I hope I've done it right...
This hop is to celebrate the release of the fabulous Betty's Burlesque stamps here at - Simply B Stamps. They are amazing, as always, and a joy to colour!
I've made 4 cards in total from these beauties

Betty Pucker Up

Betty Sweet Cake

Sexy Legs Betty

Betty Swing n a Star

I used Promarkers to colour all my images, they sentiments were either made on my computer or from Create with TLC.
I think my hair colouring is getting a little better, not as good as I would like but a little better than it was!
Once you've finished here the next step on your journey is to visit
