Baby on the Brain

Today's SCS Color Challenge was to use Basic Black, Real Red and Sage Shadow. How interesting, huh?? Well, Emily of Stamping and Stuff, the one who chooses the color challenges has some beautiful samples she created using some designer papers with those colors. I was intrigued, so I decided to give it a try.

Sorry for the bad photo . . . I received this set, Bundle of Joy from the Spring mini, a couple of weeks ago but had not used it yet. I thought sage would make a good baby card and since my teddy bear as a child was a panda bear I thought it would be perfect! I'm not sure I'm completely happy with how the card turned out, I think I work better in the morning or late at night. Since I was stamping at naptime, I think I needed a nap! :) But, I do like the color combo though and I love the little panda. I added his little heart by inking the heart with a marker and using an aquapainter to blend the color around. Oh, one thing I have to mention is that I used the Watercolor Wonder crayons neutral pack to color the panda and I'm very happy to report that the black is truly blank, not purple like when you use the stamp pad. That's worth the $9.95 right there! :)

My doctor's appointment went well yesterday - quickly but well. I was 35 weeks on Sunday and measured 36 weeks yesterday so hopefully that means I'll go early (not just that I've gained too much weight! LOL)! Can I get all of you to pray for May 1st?? :)

Have a great night everyone - I'll be back tomorrow!
