school's out for SUMMER!

My eldest's last day of school is tomorrow ... I know, where's the time fly, eh?! I, being a natural-born procrastinator, put off 'til this weekend to both pick up gifts and make cards for the teacher, 3 classroom aides, bus driver, and bus aide. I picked out some potted Gebera daisies for the classroom folkes, and found the cutest bright plastic pots.

My eldest's older so I actually get to make less cards now - he used to have a speech therapist as well. T'riffic gal and VERY crafty - we used to exchange Christmas ornaments, which I miss. But I digress ...

I made 4 of the same cards - just switched the inside sentiments - for the teacher and classroom aides. The background's digi - I took pictures of the cute bright plastic pots and then used a PhotoShop's color picker to make matching cardstock, then stamped black on white and mounted the silhouette print on black cardstock.
Another digi for the bus driver and aide - I picked out some clipart bus pics - one features a bus driver, and the other looks like it may be the back of the bus. I used the color picker again for the background cardstock, and a couple fonts I love for the sentiments - Tahoma and BlackJack. The bus driver and aide are both getting some bright yellow potted grasses - hope they like 'em! We picked up some grasses that we added to a planting in our back yard too, and some fresh annuals for a hanging basket that I hope I can get planted tomorrow! Ran out of time today.
