Last Day Of School, Thank You!!!

Good Mornin' to ya! Today is finally the last day of school! And you know, I totally forgot about school gifts and Ronin came to me yesterday and asked if he could take his teachers flowers. Very sweet, but that meant I had to make up a gifty-gifty for them last night. I went to the store at 11pm and it honestly took me WAAAAY too long to decide what to get. Finally I picked up some small bonsai plants because they will last and were the only thing there that looked even remotely healthy. I threw in some chocolate for good measure. Hopefully that will make up for sad looking plants ; )

I did manage to get a bit of card making in so here is the first one I made up. I was inspired by an outfit in a clothing catalog: (using all Papertrey Ink schtuffff)

I must say the new Beautiful Blooms II is my new favorite set. I LOVE these flower tops!! I also use the ric rac die cut, Polka Dot Basics set (a total classic!) and the Inside and Out: Thank You set.
A vintage button and some nice pink ribbon. Loverly!

Here is my second card. Yes, Ronin has TWO teachers! This one is using Beautiful Blooms II as well, but a different feel based on the colors I chose:
The background stamping was done by using A Little Argyle set (endless possibilities with this one!) stamped in Versamark Ink. I LOVE the look of it!
I also love the Say It With Style stamp set. Isn't that a fun font?! You might be able to tell that I have done a bit of purchasing lately. I am having a really good time with my new stuff..... *sigh*

Ok. Thanks for stopping in today and for all your lovely comments this week. Summer is finally here and we can't wait to play! The last few nights we have had company over so we have all be up late playing. I'm excited because finally we can do that without sleeping in and being late for school!

Really sweet cards. What a good mom to go shopping at 11pm. And chocolate makes up for everything.
