Coffee with a Dirty Girl!

Yup! That’s exactly what I did today — I had coffee with a Dirty Girl!!! Talk about a thrill!!! I can tell you from experience there is just NO greater thrill than when you receive an invitation to become one of the Dirty Girls at SCS — NO greater thrill!!! But hitting a REALLY close 2nd, is when you open up the Fan Club Galleryon the 15th and see your very BEST friend IRL staring at you — oh my GOSH — I about jumped out of my chair this morning and went through the ceiling!!!! I could NOT contain myself!!! Well, many of you who frequent the Fan Club already know who I’m talking about — none other than my friendDeb — Deb Saaranen — Dream in ColorDeborahLynneS. YAY, DEB!!!! I am so proud of you!!!! Such a well deserved honor!!!! And who is joining Debthis month as the other new Dirty Girl? Well, none other than a very good online friend who many of you know and love both for her artistic ability as well asher ability to captivate us all with a good story — LOL!!!– Cindy — Cindy Motherway — This is My StoryMothermark. HUGE CONGRATS! to both Cindy and Deb — what a duo you two will make!!! My best wishes to you both — I know you’ll both have the time of your lives!!!

OK, now on to my card — to commemorate today’s afternoon coffee with Deb, I thought I needed to make another coffee card, which was perfect as I have so many coffee images colored up from a week or so ago. This is just a fun and simple card, a one-stamper for the Post Office!!!


It’s so simple, not much explaining is needed!!! I’ll just leave you with my supply list so you have time to hop on over to SCS and check out the latest Fan Club Gallery. You will NOT be disappointed!!! And if you can’t get in, you can read all about it here.

    Just wondering if anyone has a secret for dealing with the little fuzzies that get into the chalk and pigment pads, stick to your stamps and drag ink into places you don’t want it? I am all ears…
