{TCPTUES158} Welcome Baby!

Hey there! Today I have for you The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday colour challenge brought to you by the bright & bold cat packer Tori. She always has the BEST colour combos around, so she was a perfect fit for the colour challenges after Sony left the pack. Go check out Tori's blog and you'll see what I mean;)!!
And according to Tori and some celebrity fashionistas, grey is the new black! this another Canadian/American thing? I think so! I know all my friends to the south probably think I am some kind of strange in the way that I spell 'colour' but that's actually the right way;) Sorry guys- you have been misspelling it all along..Haha!!!
Anyway- enough with the hijinks...time to get serious with stamping! I got my TCP order a few days ago and I had been itching for this stamp set  'And Baby Makes...' for awhile now, so I couldn't wait to get this big 'ol hippo and her baby inked up! AND.......My good, good friend Miss Mindy Shingoose (not her real name, but the loving moniker I appointed her with) just had her 3rd baby boy!!!! Eeeekk! Another member ordained into my select club (insert evil laugh here).
So here is my card for my hippo friend and her new babe (although she is probably fit as a fiddle again....good genes and all!) Mind- I know you'll see this before I get to see you and Baby J, so think of it as a preview:) I miss you terribly and can't wait to come and visit and give loads of snuggles to the newest lil piggy!

This card is actually kind of funny, as it pretty much incorporates a few of the last bunch of TCP challenges: Baby (TCP 154), buttons (TCP 157) and the colour combo for today:) I used my pinking border die to make a double sided border to go diagnally across the card, and my Button and Button Flowers cutups for all the fun little button-y goodness!
You likey the sentiment?? I used two different phrases from this set, stamping the 'Sweet' in blue ink in between the black 'welcome baby' verse. Just use a little scotch tape over the part you want left out, ink, then simply remove the tape before you stamp! Easy peezy, lemon squeezy!

Come and play along with us this week for your chance to win some cat cash and don't forget about our monthly Swanky Stamper contest for an opportunity of fame and fortune, TCP style! Just link up your creations here.
