Schools Out for summer!

Hoorah for the holidays!  6 weeks of not having to sort out 3 children in record time and no having to wash or sort uniforms!  
Last week I managed to whip up some last minute teachers cards, the ones in the shops werent really that good and then there is the price of them, when you have so many teachers to buy for the pennies soon mount up!
So here are a few of the ones I made.
Simple apple using a template, with I think some stampin up papers a bit of twin and some other bits and bobs some nice clean and simple cards.  I think they suit the men and the ladies.

Right must dash will be back tomorrow with CYDA challenge.

Here is my take on this months theme
The papers are from a Tatty Teddy freebie paper pack, the image is lili of the valley as is the sentiment stamp the ribbon is from my stash the flowers are from wild orchid crafts, the pearls are from carols crafts.  I have coloured with pro markers, glamour dust on the flowers and wedding dress and I have stamped the sentiment out with gold ink.  I used nestie and sizsix dies for the die cuts.
