Triple the fun.........

You may recall that a little while back I made a Pea-In-A-Pod here.

Well, one of my co-workers recently became a Great-Aunt (I think) to TRIPLETS, 2 girls and a boy. She set me a challenge to make her a card. Given that triplets it not a frequent occurence, you can appreciate that there would not be THAT much variety in cards for the occasion, so with that in mind, I set to task.

I had so much fun doing this card. I was also a little more confident with it in that I had done one before. I also think I did this one slightly differently in that I also highlighted in white gel pen the actual peas that were the bodies.....makes such a difference!!

I havd tied the 2 wee pink bows again out of 3mm ribbon....but did not wish to leave the wee chap to speak. So I made him a super-dooper teeny tiny bow tie!!

The sentiment was from the Warm Words set and I felt it suited better than a "congrats" or the ole "it's a boy/girl"

I think part of the attraction of these cards is the small details in them like the sponging and the highlighting.


As a final touch I added some "buds" in pink and blue on the vine. Not that I think that the new Mum is going to go back anytime soon for any more bubs!

Great Aunt Cheryl was wrapped with the card as was the brand new Mum. Oh...and by the way, for the record the triplets were named River (boy), Ila and Amaya.

Another amazing creation. I loved the little pink and blue flowers on the card. And you can't go past his cute bowtie.

Hi Lynda
What an amazing card, how clever to come up with such a great idea. I would have been baffled as to what to do for a triplet card, you have really done a fantastic job. I love the colours and love the little bows, so cute.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
Love Lee-Anne

Gorgeous job, Lynda! And ... well done to fit 3 on the one card! Phew! Almost as squishy as those 3 little gorjuns inside their mama's tummy! giggle! :D I did try one a while ago ... but only managed 1 pea pod!!! I love the little details you have added ... pink hair bows ... and a cute blue bowtie!!! You are one clever chicken! Hugs xxaxx
