It's the Great Secret Pumpkin Exchange Blog Hop Day 3

Happy Halloween!  Trick or Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!

Okay so let's get on to the final hop prize and how you can win it or one of the other two prizes!

Today is our final hop day, with a new set of ghouls, I mean gals, and a final prize.  Today's prize is one mega bucket!  It has 12 new stamps, yep you heard me!  And they haven't been released yet!  That means you will not only get the stamps before everyone else, but if you choose to, you can be a part of the release. It's not required but it is an open invitation to be Guest Release DT Member.  Both of these lines will not, I repeat, not be available in digi, and if you are a digi lover and you win this prize, or any of the other two prizes and would like to switch them out for digis Betty will grant that wish for you!

SO how can you get in on any of these three awesome prizes?  It is soooo simple you may re-read this twice to make sure you read it right!

All you have to do is upload your best Halloween picture on the Simply Betty Stamps blog with Mr. Linky!  Yep that's it!  It's Halloween night, I know we are all going to have our cameras out and ready to flash people, you know what I mean by flash!  LOL

Your picture must be Halloween, your family trick or treating, having dinner in your costumes, anything Halloween and in a costume!  You will have until Nov. 3rd to upload your picture, the DT gals and Betty will vote on three of our favorites in the following catagories:  Cutest, Funniest, Most Original!  Mr. Linky will be gone by Nov. 3rd, and the three winners will be announced Nov. 10th on Betty's Birthday!  Whoohoo!  Like yesterday, today you can win a secret Betty digi just by leaving a comment on the SBS blog letting Betty know what you thought of all the gal's posts and projects! 
Thank you all so much for hopping and here we go....

So, on to revealing my Secret Pumpkin!  Not only did she give me a treat (my card and coffin), she gave me a pair of socks so she wouldn't have to smell my feet, and she gave me something good to eat, Snickers!  Now, how cool is that!?  Thank you, Aeryn Kelly-Reitmeyer for being such a ghoulishly sweet Secret Pumpkin!  Just look at this cute little combo Aeryn made!  I must confess, the coffin is empty.  When it arrived, it was full of Snickers, now it's not.  They have all disappeared!  I'm sure they'll reappear sometime soon on my hips or rear end but in the meantime, I've just been licking my lips!

Here's a close-up of just the card she made using
Vampire Christian from the Emo Halloween Collection.

Isn't he just adorable in his own spooky little way?  Love the sentiment too!  Here's a picture of the socks Aeryn sent me.  I propped my feet up on my stamping desk just for the occasion!  Notice all the mess on my desk?  Yep, that's what happens after two busy weeks of stamping, Halloween has exploded all over my desk!

Thank you Aeryn for making my Halloween even more special and fun by being my Secret Pumpkin! 

So, I thought that since it's Halloween I would give you an extra treat and show you another card I made using Witchy Boo Betty in digi format.  I don't know about you, but I love digis!

I so wish you could see the sparkle on the stars!  They are just so much prettier in real life, the camera never seems to do my sparkles justice.  I think she came out pretty cute.  I also did a card I sent to my Secret Pumpkin but the post office decided to lose my package that I sent so Erika unfortunately didn't get to participate.  I can't even begin to tell you how angry I am with the post office but more than that, I feel awful for Erika not getting her goodies.  I did take a picture of the card before I mailed it to her and I'd like to post it below.  I used Punkin' Judy from the Sweet Gothic Kids Halloween Collection.  When you have time please go to Erika's site, and give her some love.  I feel just awful that her package is out there missing in action.

I'm so hoping Erika's box shows up soon.

Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you have a safe and spooky Halloween!
