Simply Betty EMO Previews ~ Valentine Disclaimer

Woot Woot! WE're startin to show you the Emo Babes we have coming out on the 7th! YAY! The Emo's are my favorite Betty line so Im always excited when new ones are being released....LOL...now that being said, here's my Valentine disclaimer....

After years of being single on Valentines Day, crying into my leftover Christmas chocolates and whinning to my other like minded bitter girlfriends, I grew a hatred for this retail driven holiday. That, while I appreciate the thought of celebrating a loved one, I dislike the expected showing of affection. I am much happier when my SWEET husband (who spoils me rotten year round) surprises me with something special on AN ORDINARY DAY not when he's told he has to! So! That being said, I now do not celebrate Valentines Day and the cards you see over the next few days will be ANTI Valentine's day cards! LOL I will not apologize for that, I just hope you can get a chuckle from them, and well. If you are easily offended....you might not want to keep looking.....this one's not bad but the following cards....I only mean to make you smile. :o) 


OK, here we go, here is my version of {Anti} Valentine Betty:
Hehe.... OK, so I've done alittle altering to my Betty, in her original format she's winking, but I didn't think my Betty would want to take her eyes off my Skipping Stones frog here long enough to MISS Prince Charming.... hehe. The sentiment is one I've made up myself and will hopefully have in my Digi shop when I get'er going. The papers are all from BoBunny.

I cant wait to show you the rest of the crew and my uh.....other Anti Valentine creations.... hehe.
Like I said, hopefully you have a good sence of HAHA. :o)
Cheers and Happy New Year all!!

I totally agree with you about Valentine's day! I think that it's sucky that you need a "day" to be nice to your spouse, it should just be done every day! I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of your anti valentine's day cards! This one cracked me up!! Lovin the card lady! Happy New Year!!

Jeezus why do you always have to be so good at this?! LMAO!! This car is fab and I love your Valentine's explanation and am looking forward to your ANTI cards. I'm kinda of within the same thinking. I don't like having a day where we should be telling someone how we feel. So consumer based. Her hair looks fab!
