Some Dirty News!

GOOD TUESDAY MORNING!
Yep...I'm yelling! I'm so flippin' excited!
Have you been to Splitcoaststampers yet today? Have you seen WHO the new Dirty Girls are?
Can you believe that I AM A DIRTY GIRL!?!
I'm sure you are as surprised as I was....lol
Well you may not be surprised to see Emily Giovanni there...you all know her....she is the Color Challenge Queen! I'm super excited to be in this for the next six months with her! I can't wait to get to know her better!!
I had the hardest time keeping this HUGE secret and I had to flat out LIE to Jennifer Meyer a couple of weeks ago on the phone....sorry Jennifer...hope you can forgive me ;)
Onto my cards!
This first one was for Monday's Try a New Technique. Beate had written a fabulous tutorial on SCS for this GRID technique. It's super easy but gives wonderful results. I'd gotten my new SU! stuff last week and wanted to give them a whirl. I'm not sure I like the new colours just yet...
Stamps: Dreams De Jour; Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi, WW and Bella Rose DP; Inks: Kiwi and Riding Hood Red; Accessories: SU! Scallop Edge Punch, Scor Pal, Dimensionals
Julee had her Mojo sketch posted first thing Monday morning and I couldn't wait to get at it. I had this monkey already stamped and coloured from another project I'd been working on. He is so adorable! These Summertime Fun stamps from CC Designs can be purchased at All That Scraps.
Stamps: Summertime Fun; Cardstock: Real Red, WW, Temp. Turq and American Crafts DP(both sides); Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Copic Markers, SU! Scallop Edge Punch, Nesties, Quickie glue pen, Primary Dew Drops and Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
If you aren't a Fan Club Member at SCS you won't be able to see the gallery...sorry

I think I like new colors, I especially like the new dp, this card is nice. Julee's sketch card is cute as well. I tried last night but was too tired to get the circles balanced. I try again later in the week. Maybe it was me / not the card off balance! HA!

The stamps with the quotes on them are really cool....and I love that summery look with the red, white, green and the DREAMS sentiment. I guess I really love the red look for summer like those cherry ones you had done before.
