WooHoo! Summer holidays are here!!

Well…they will be after tomorrow!  And we’re definitely ready for them!  Can’t wait!  We’ve been soooo busy, I know the kids will be glad of the break!!

Here’s the finished teachers cards and presents:

Thanks card

This is for my eldest boy who is off to BIG school next year! Yep, Year 7 (or 1st year seniors to most of us!).  He’s sooo looking forward to it….and I’m dreading it! *sob* My little boy is growing up!!  I think it’s Year 7 when you start becoming an embarassment to them….he assures me he will still talk to me when he sees me though Smile.

I’ve used Wasabi Green and Early Espresso colours to make the card and added a little “Charlie” using the ‘All in the Family’ Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!

Gift boxes

My little middley is changing schools too!  He’s moving up to juniors and is fast becoming Mr Independent!  I asked him what he was going to write in his card.  He said “To Mrs Fish, from Max”.  He’s a boy of very little words! 

I added a acetate window to the bird house for this one, and a velcro fastener on one side of the roof.  I don’t want them to be destroyed when trying to get the chocs out afterall!!!  Again, I’ve used ‘All in the Family’ again to make a mini Max.  I’ve 3D’d his shirt and tie over the pair of trousers to make him slightly shorter than his brother above!  I’ve then 3D’d the image to the top of the card to give it dimension.

Teacher's Gift

And finally my youngest and pinkest!  Annie is actually changing schools.  But Annie was Miss Independent the day she was born!  She’s going to be fine, even though she’s leaving nursery and moving to the same school as Max (‘big’ school) in September.  It makes for easier logistics but we’re going to miss the nursery!  She’s loved every minute of it there and she’s loved being in Mrs Wyatt’s class.  I do hope these make it to Mrs Wyatt though.  It’s taken me all my time to stop Annie eating them all!!  Bless!

Again, I’ve used ‘All in the Family’ but have paper pieced mini Annie a pink dress.  I’ve 3D’d the image over a strip of card and ribbon, and tied a little bow to the side.

So hope you like them!  I’m entering the cards in the following challenges:
