I've Got a Dirty Little(okay huge) Secret!!

We interupt this regularly scheduled Prettie Wednesday post to share with you some breaking news...yours truly is a DIRTY GIRL!!!!WAHOOO!!! I FINALLY did it!! One month, and a few LONG days ago, Jenn Blacer herself called me to ask me if I would like to be a Dirty Girl. Once I quit crying and screaming(inside, not on the phone, who could scream at her, she is so sweet), I immediately said YES YES YES. I mean, seriously, who can say no to that?? So, I have been keeping this HUGE secret..which I will be honest, has been eating at me!! I am super excited to be sharing a "room" with the SUPER TALENTED Lisa Zappa(lzappa). Check her out at her blog, ShabbyChick Junk. Congrats roomie, what a ride!! Know what's funny, I had my "pick my name " contest on here, and the DAY after I posted it, Jenn called me!! To keep it a secret, I went ahead and picked a winner and had Jenn change it...but no offense, I will take Splicoast Dirty Dozen over the Layer Queen anyday!!
Okay, back to the business at hand!! Here is my card for Prettie Wednesday! Two weeks ago, Jodi(kharmagirl) challenged us to make a card using Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose and Pumpkin Pie. Lucky me, I had just ordered some Sweet Always paper from SU, and it worked perfectly for this challenge. I used the Look Who's Perky set, and I paper pieced my image. I then layered it with the challenge colors and did some piercing. The polka dotted layer is the reverse side of the paper I pieced with. I stamped my sentiment directly on it, and then layered it with some Chocolate Chip. What you can't see is that I did a TON of piercing, and then covered it all up...smart huh, NOT!! Anyway, the sketch is Beates' Weekend Sketch Challenge. I did add some ribbon to the side and my silver brads. Of course, what would a card be without my spiral clips, huh?? And to all of you that were worried, never fear, I found a place that sells them, and I ordered 100, wahoo!!!

So now I am pooped,and I am headed for bed. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! Be sure to check out the other Prettie Girls to see what they have been up to!! This weeks challenger is Jackie R., so I will be anxious to see what she has in store for us. Speaking of Prettie Girls...did you hear we have a new Prettie Girl!! Welcome Jessica Diedrich to our wonderful family!! She is super talented and sweet, and I can't wait to see what she can do!!
