End of Year Teacher Gifts

Hello!  Today I have the cards I made for my cute kiddos to give their teachers for the end of a great school year.  I have loved all the teachers and thought they deserved a break in the sunshine!  Don't we all, actually?  My baby is done with Preschool tomorrow and my heart is so heavy that she's growing so big.  She has two of the best teachers around and we were so fortunate that she got to have the same ones as my 8 year old!  I hope I don't cry too much while delivering them!  Their gifts are sunshine related.  A beach towel, sunscreen, a water bottle, some treats and a magazine!  It was so fun to put together and I hope they love them as much as I do.  

Here is the card I made.  And I gotta say, I LOVE my Cricut Explore  I used a ball point pen in the machine on a whim and it totally worked, and my card just fell together!  I used Create a Critter and wow is that a cute cartridge!   The inside is from All Mixed Up and the stitching is just a computer font I turned and twisted and added to my writing!  I was SO excited and I cannot wait to do more sentiments with my Explore!

My 8 year old said "It looks like the crab and starfish are having fun!"  Good thing, 'cause that's what I was going for!  

Thank you so much for visiting today.  Hope you all can enjoy some fun in the sun!
