SBS You have a splashing personality

Hello SBS fans!

I hope your day is going well.  I had planned a bike ride with my family today but the unpredictable weather has put a stop to that.  Instead we are making a peanut butter and chocolate marble cake, its the best cake ever followed by apple and banana crumble! yummy!

Anyway, getting back on track, I am showcasing a few of Betty's older images over the next couple of weeks.  They are from her 50 States Section and Fun Friday Digi's Section in her shop.  All the details you need will be at the bottom of this post.

This might also be a good time to let you know that Betty has a new SBS Fan page set up, so if you were part of the old, you need to make the move over to the new page to be kept up to date with new images, competitions and day to day Betty giggles.
So this image is Oregon from the 50 States Girls.  I don't know much about America so I'm guess Oregon is like Great Britain, a bit WET!!! lol!
I went for my 'go to' colour combo's for green and brown.
Copic Colours:
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, R34, R20

I hope you like what I did.

Let Hope Fly - Celebrating Memorial Day

WOW! What an incredible night we had.  4am wake up call by nature.  The loudest thunder I have ever heard and the biggest lightning show my eyes have ever seen.  It was incredible, I don't  think I'll have much gardening on the agenda today which means I can get on and do some more crafting, especially since I have now been accepted onto a new Design Team.
I'd love to share with you all my first posting as a member of the Simply Betty Stamps Design Team.  I've been a fan for years and have been working really hard on my colouring skills to apply for those 'dream team positions'.  I'm thrilled I now get to work with such talented artists.  Thank you Betty for picking me to showcase all of your wonder art work.
So, lets move on, less of me and more about Betty.
It's Memorial Day in USA and Bank Holiday in UK, Betty has a lot of sales, raffles and fun going on that simply cannot be missed.
Let Hope Fly, is the freeb image available if you purchase $12 or more of digital images from Betty's online Store.
