Triple Play

So, I started my new job today, and my feet are KILLING me!! I guess taking a year off wasn't such a good idea. Note to self: take first paycheck and buy better shoes.LOL!!! I have been thinking about the Limited Supplies Challenge since I saw it this morning, and had a super awesome plan cooked up. By the time I got off work, I couldn't remember what I had planned on doing.:( On the way home from work(a .2 mile walk), I got a message from my friend Sharon who wanted to let me know that she was a great grandma now and that totally got babies on my brain. Since 3 of my friends are having boys here soon(and today apparently), I decided to use the LSC to make them all baby cards. The challenge was to use the exact same tools, embellishments, hardware, colors, and stamps on three cards, but have different layouts. How stinkin fun is that!!! I started with the Bundle of Joy set and stamped my Hippo in Black Stazon on watercolor paper(just so you know, I finally got smart and bought some non SU watercolor paper- that SU stuff is just way to yellow for my taste), and my sentiment on Whisper White with Black Stazon, and then I colored them in using my SU markers and an aqua painter. The base is Green Galore on all three cards and it is layered with Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, and Dots and Dashes DSP(retired-sorry). I stuck some silver brads and spiral clips on all three, and used the same three ribbons on all three too. I really like the way they turned out!! That is it for me today, I will be back after work tomorrow to tell you if I still like it!!LOL!!
