National Research Day 3 of 3's

Today is the third Wednesday of the month and this is my Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card! The 3 Musketeers--Kelly, Jeanette and me--are back with another challenge for May, our 37th month!  That means we just started our 4th year--Yay!

Kelly provided the challenge for May: Your theme is the 3 of 3's! Kelly asked us in February for a number between 1 and 805.  May 20, 2020 is National Research Day.  In keeping with the idea of #stayathome and #usewhatsavailable, we will go back in time and do some research and how to make your card for the 3 of 3's with a newer twist.  It's a reflection of where we've been and we were are ~ the here and now.  I chose the number 207, Jeanette picked 143 and Kelly's random number generator gave her 402.  

Ready: Go to your blog.  There are 3 of us so pick your 3rd year of blogging, 3rd month and 3rd card. 

Set:  You're going to recreate that card to the best of your abilities with the added twist of the numbers you chose. The twist is to use the number we picked.  I have 207, so I need 2 of something and 7 of something else. Try to keep the theme-type of stamp, etc., Post the first card so we can see the before and after.

And Go.

Ready? Set? Go!

So, I went to March 7, 2012, my third card in March for my third year of blogging.  This is the image that is there:

A few years ago I deleted a boat load of pictures in my Google Drive to free up space, and it was connected to blog, so I lost years of card pictures....................  But, in reading the description, I realized I still have the stamp--Whipper Snapper Designs Birthday "Potty".  How Funny!  Maybe because it is such a funny stamp!  So, I inked it up and colored the image with my Copic Markers.  I picked the fun It's My Party Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up for the background-and no, it was not because of the name!

Now--on to the added twist of the number 207.  I could go easy and say I have 7 colors of Copic Markers--which I do!  But, I also have 7 Enamel Dots on my card.  I have 2 colors of cardstock and also 2 balloon brads.  

It sure was a fun card to recreate--thanks for the fun challenge Kelly!

Here is the inside of my card:

I'm just going to say this first and get it over with - your photo of the card from way back when looks a whole lot better than mine. LOL! Oh if only I had deleted a boatload of images from my google drive, too!

Funny thing, too - I own the stamp you used, too. Wonder why??? It's not one I've used much. LOL! I actually purchased it at the rummage sale at Oga.

Your card is adorable and I love the idea of using 7 Copic markers. You're so smart... and creative!

What a fun card Barb - pity we can't 'see' the original, but so glad you figured what stamp set you used, and that you still had it on hand - great use of your numbers too.
Stay safe
