Simply Betty New Emo's - My guess: Halloween Theme!

Ok, so I've fallen head over heels for these My Kids Emo World stamps by Simply Betty. Seriously, I have 2 of the first releases and want the other 4 so bad! Now, there is going to be a NEW release with sneak peeks starting tomorrow but first there was a fun contest to GUESS the theme of the new My Kids Emo line with a FANTASTIC prize of a chance to WIN all 6. We got little (tiny) snippets of each new emo & using those had to try to come up with the theme. I eagerly awaited each new snippet & after they were all out I was still STUMPED!!! I looked at them over and over and over (and over...). Then last I was looking at them AGAIN, it hit me...Halloween?!? Maybe?! I don't know...but that's my guess. Sure, it seems July is a little early to be thinking about this holiday but it is my 2nd FAVORITE holiday so it was really no problem to get my creative mojo flowing into this card:

For my card I used Betty herself - isn't she fabulous?! Omg, seriously love her. I love her outfit, I love her hair, I love her big bright eyes. Everything! I had a blast coloring her with copics. Then I pulled out some of my grungboard shapes & used the spooky house & pumpkin for the backdrop. I added some texutre to the house with one of my new TH texture plates - burlap. I've had this ribbon tape since last halloween & pulled it out to add to the strip behind betty. I cut out some of the bats and added them here and there for some added flair. Now, I hope you like my card EVEN if it's the wrong theme, I had a blast making it! I also VERY loosely used the sketch challenge at Simply Betty Stamps blog b/c the only thing better than winning these awesome stamps would be to get a chance to be a guest DT member!!!

Now, I can't wait for tomorrow for the sneak peeks to begin and get my hands on them when they are released on the 15th!!!

Thats so cool your right we both have two totally different guesses, good luck to you. I can't wait to see the card you make for the GDT spot.
