Birthday cards for 3 boys

Good Morning!

I'm posting these photos very quickly and I promise I will update the details later today.  I've had a very sick wee daughter over the weekend who has been very clingy - I'm sort of hoping it's chicken pox to get them over and done with (there's a spate of them in Nursery) but no spots yet so it may be just a bug.  I'm stealing few moments away while she's in bed....
Finally updated! - scroll down for details...








As I'd said before in a previous post, I have triplet nephews whose birthday was yesterday and I was late making their cards mainly because I was finding it difficult to think up 3 cards with a similar theme but having each different. If you know what I mean!

I came across these cute images at The Clipart Fairy printable store.
Perfect for what I needed and I ended up making all the cards very quickly - once I'd figured out how to resize them in adobe reader.  I printed 2 of them twice so I could cut out and layer them to add a bit of depth to the cards. 

also made library pockets, cut with this Sizzix library pocket die to hold their birthday money. I embossed it with a little cuttlebug embossing folder and went over it lightly with white chalk.

Thank you for your kind comments asking about Phoebe - she was ill again last night and I ended up steam cleaning the tiles on the bathroom floor at 3am... (I'm having to prop my eyelids open today) but so far no spots so it looks like it is a bad tummy bug.  She's sleeping peacefully now and here's hoping we get a full night's sleep tonight :)

Poor little munchkin! In some ways it would be best if it is chicken pox but I hope she has it mildly if it is. The cards are fab! Do wish the boys happy birthday from us! Vx
