The long wait is over!!!

I have been hiding something from you, my friends...not because I wanted to! But because I'm a rule follower (boot camp anyone?;)
***I have been asked to be a DIRTY GIRL!!!!!!!!!!! That's right, I'm now a dirty girl on the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen Design Team! It's really surreal, and I can hardly believe I can finally spill the beans! I feel like Jenn might come after me and tell me it's not time yet, lmbo! Lydia Fielder, also known as Understand Blue, is joining me on this fabulous journey! Congratulations Lydia!!
If you are a member of the Fan Club over at SCS, you can see the December gallery "Home for the Holiday's" now (well, after the bugs are worked out)! If you are NOT a member of the fan club, you won't be able to see the gallery. Go HERE to see how to sign up to be a member! Your money goes to a great cause. Splitcoaststampers is an amazing website from which I've gained everything I know about papercrafting:) If you frequent the website, you know what I mean! All the folks that work behind the scenes are amazing and wonderful and can't do it for free;) It's such a reasonable price for all the benefits you receive, not to mention helping out the community you love!

Okay, since I can't share any of the cards I created for this month's gallery, I created this card I can share today! I got my new Kraftin' Kimmie stamps in the mail yesterday and OMG I loveeeey them! These stamps are really huge! Perfect for coloring and using as focal images on your card!
This is Piper! Don't you LOVE that name? If I ever have a daughter, this name is seriously on top of the list. I think it's so sweet:) I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I chose the colors based on that plaid dp from the Eskimo Kisses paper by Basic Gray! I looove
this pattern and the fun, bright colors! I also used some polka's from Polka Dot Basics II by PTI! I stamped them in Aqua Mist on the Aqua Mist base. For a little added fun, I stitched along the edges of the polka's! The mat layers behind Piper and the sentiment (from Verve's Delightful and Delicious) is Rich Razzleberry, one of SU's current in-colors. The ribbon, button, and twine are also by PTI.

Well, thank you for letting me shout my exciting news from the top of the mountains! I hope you have a great day!!!!!!!
