School is ending soon and my kiddos have some awesome teachers this year. Here is the Thank You card that I made this year. I ended up making 7 of these cards for my kiddos’ teachers and teacher aides. The layout and sentiment is the same for all the cards. The books and calculators are colored differently on each card.

Antsy for Summer card

The weather was cold and miserable this weekend. What happened to spring? To help improve my mood, I made a summery card in hopes of warm weather soon. I tried to double stamp some of the ants, and that did not turn out well. I still love this card design and may try it again someday.

Fintastic Birthday Shaker Card

My father in law’s birthday is coming up soon. The kiddos and I made him this shaker card. The kids painted everything with their cheapy water color set and I cut everything out. I combined a sentiment from Fintastic Friends and Loveable Legends for this card. I did put too many fish in the shaker portion but otherwise I think it turned out very well.
