Who's Dirty?

Have you seen the latest dirty girl news on Splitcoast??????????

I was asked to join the design team!!

OMG!..the Dirty Dozen...little ole' me. Wow, huh??

When I was away at the beach last month, I received a phone call...that's right a phone call...from Jenn Balcer asking me what I was "doing for the next six months." {holy cr*#!} Yeah, I was feeling pretty giddy...TRIED so hard to play it cool {how did I do, Jenn?}, but oh man, I was shaking!! LOL!

Two of my stamping friends were with me that weekend, right in the room with me while I was on the phone with Jenn, and promised us that they'd keep the secret. Lori and Janice, what a huge secret to have to keep for an entire month! Thank you, and I'm really glad you were both there to share the excitement.

I'm so glad the secret is out and I can finally TALK about it, LOL! I was so afraid I'd give it away and people would guess....actually some of you DID start making guesses. It was all I could do to avoid those questions too, LOL! So anyway, if I've "disappeared" from threads or if I've been more quiet and haven't been producing as many challenge cards, now you know why. {smile}

If you're a member of the SCS Fan Club, be sure to check out all the awesome projects the dirty girls have put together for this month's theme. You'll love them!

So...onto the card. I made this card for my awesome "roomie" Carole (TruCarMa), who was also introduced as a new dirty girl this month. Hi Carole, I hope you like the card.

I thought the Muddy Pup image from Whipper Snapper would be a cool image for a "dirty girl" card. Check out the pup's little face. Doesn't it just look like the pup is asking, "WHO?" hehe! The image was sent to me by my friend Janette (blessingsx3). Thanks, Janette! The puppy circle is up on a layer of dimensionals, and the Pretty in Pink circle behind it is up on a second layer of dimensionals. The star with the question mark was made on the computer, printed twice, cut out, and layered with dimensionals as well. The white panel at the top is sponged in Pretty in Pink around the edges, and the Who's Dirty sentiment was made on the computer. The inside of the card has a white panel with Close to Cocoa sponged around all four edges. Then I stamped the star stamp from the Background Basics set along the bottom in Pretty in Pink.
