SHHH, I've Got A Secret!!

ETA!!! So, my secret is out of the bag!!! Jen del Muro has chosen me to be this months Sketch For You To Try guest designer!! WOOHOOO!! I fell so honored and blessed!! Thank you to all of you who have stopped by with well wishes, I totally appreciate them. If you are new to my blog, WELCOME and I hope you come back!!

Okay, so I have been keeping a little secret from you, and until I am sure it is revealed, I am keeping my mouth shut!! It has been the hardest thing too!! When I get secrets like this, I tell my DH Travis, but bless his heart, he just doesn’t get it. I might as well tell him that I will be turning purple at midnight and floating off to live in space with the other purple people. Honestly, I don’t think even THAT would get him enthused…..what can I say, his ability to pretend he understands me was NOT the reason I fell in love with him!!LOL! So, as soon as the secret is revealed, I will be back with my news!! Here is my card for today. This SUPER CUTE image is next months Stamp Of the Month Club stampfrom Paper Pretties. She won’t be available to the public until September, so if you have to have her, which lets face it, you do, GO SIGN UP NOW!!! Just be sure to tell them that me(or my blog) sent ya!! I stamped my Howdy Cowgirl on Very Vanilla and colored her in with my SU markers. I then sponged the edges of her(for that matter the whole card) and layered her with Close to Cocoa and Really Rust. The squares were punhed out with my SU square punches and the DP is from the SU pack Outlaw. The brads are so cool aren’t they!! They are from Making Memories. After it was all done, I wrapped some hemp twine around the card. I have to work for a few hours this morning, so I wanted this to already be posted, I will edit it as soon as my BIG WONDERFUL EXCITING NEWS is revealed today!! I am such a tease!! Since I have revealed my secret, be sure to blurf around and see what Jen, Amy, Carole, Shannan and Susan have done with this sketch!! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!
