Baa-baa Black Sheep

Tis really amazing how time flies....isn't it. You may (or may not) recall a card I may for triplets born here. Well...those triplets have just turned ONE!!!!! Their Aunt asked me again to make them a speccy card to celebrate this occasion. I was inspired by a card I saw on Kerry Bunting's blog here. This was my card for the birthday bubba's.......

I took this pic in the stockroom at work and only realised afterwards that a small piece of plastic has clung to the card. This WAS removed before passing it on!!! I did add a couple of things to Kerry's original (apart from an extra sheep!!!) I sponged in a sky and also sponged the sheep in Crumb Cake, not black, just to soften it a bit. I also managed (by luck rather than good management) to do the "ewe" in the same font as the top of it. I used the 'e' and 'w' from 'best wishes' and viola.

Here is a close up of one of the sheep......

...and yes...these are the same wee bows I tied on their original birth card too!!!!

I put the fact that they turned "1" on the inside of the card......

Both the Mum of the triplets and the Aunt were very happy with the card....and I have another 12 months to think of something for 2....if approached....LOL!!!

How amazingly adorable! You are such a clever little chicken! I am thinking 2 girls & 1 boy??? Is it really a year already? I can't believe Bree is already 6 mths! Time is just flying far too fast! She will be graduating college before I know it. Hugs xx
