Last Day of Term!!

End of term and time for cards and pressies - however seeing as my boys have the same teachers next term I decided to make them cupcakes!
I made a selection of cards using stamps from Papertrey Ink - I love these stamps and you make such pretty cards in minutes just by adding a few buttons!! I have used scraps of paper from my stash box - a selection of Basic Grey and DCVW, buttons are from my stash a selection from American Crafts and Doodlebug. Sentiments are from Stampin Up!





I made a goodluck card for Sam's PE teacher who is leaving - he'll miss her lots! I have used a Magnolia stamp and coloured her in using Promarkers and Prisma pencils, sentiment is stampin up as before and pearls are from my stash.
Cupcakes!! - A box for the ASD unit - there are so many staff that work with Sam I couldn't single anyone out so I made a dozen for Sam to take in - I got my boxes and cases from this site and I was so impressed by their quick delivery!
inside a dozen cupcakes!
I also gave a couple of cupcakes to Sam's bus driver and escort
and Jack took some in to his Form Tutor and another teacher who has helped him a lot this year.
The boxes included a vanilla cupcake with pink vanilla butter cream frosting.
and a carrot cupcake with cream cheese frosting dusted with cinnamon.

Yummy!!!
I also found on Monday that Sam's LSA - his keyworker who works with him everyday - is getting married during the summer! So a mad panic to make a wedding card!! I have used a wedding stamp from Whiff of Joy. I have coloured in using pro-markers. Papers are Basic grey - nook and pantry, lace flower is prima, ribbon, lace and pin from my stash.

Veil and flowers are covered in stickles
Sentiment and punches are stampin up
I decorated a wooden horse shoe with prima flowers, stickles and pearls
Used a Perebo fabric paint to write goodluck on the horseshoe
And now to start all over again and tidy up ready for Jack's birthday tomorrow!!
Thanks for looking
Love Sarah xx
