I'm Late, I'm Late For a Very Important Date!!!

Oh my gosh......I am so LATE with this post, YIKES!!!
I have a very special announcement to share with all of you. I am on a DESIGN TEAM...Whoot Whoot!!!! I was so excited when I received an email from Mynnette Kitchen, owner of Technique Tuesday, 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and On a Stampage blogs, asking me to join her Technique Tuesday Crew! This month I made my very first DT card; it is so exciting, lol. The challenge this month at Technique Tuesday is Baby Wipe Re-inker cards and you have totally got to try this technique. It is fabulous and super easy to do.....honest :). Mynnette has a fabulous tutorial on her blog with easy to follow instructions and pictures showing each step. Just click on the Technique Tuesday Crew icon in my sidebar and that will take you right to Mynnette's tutorial.
Here is my card for this fabulous technique:
