teacher appreciation gifts & a graduation card

The last few days I've been a busy bee working on teacher's gifts AND a graduation card.  I used the Estate Sale Line from Bella Blvd. that I bought from their warehouse sale last month:
one teacher LOVES peanut m&m's:

The other two like Scrapbooking so I went to my favorite scrapbook store and bought gift cards which are in the little pockets on the front.  This idea came from THIS post by Lisa Truesdell a few days ago:
here's a good closeup of the flowers.  I got this idea from the GCD studios blog, THIS post has a GREAT detailed description on how to make them.  I didn't like the centers so I decided to make pom pom's with embroidery floss and hot glue those on to the end of the bamboo skewer and pull through the flower...
 They are pretty interesting to look at...

And finally I made this fun little graduation card for a niece who is graduating today:
The girl is a silhouette cut..
This was SO much fun to play!  yeah for the last day of school--mixed emotions?  yep, excited for NO schedule--YOU BET!
Thanks for the visit today!
