The End of the Year was all a whurr....

I don't know if any other teachers were feeling like I felt at the end of the year, but I definitely felt that the end of this school year, was A LOT more hectic and chaotic than my first two years. I think part of the chaos for me was that I found out less than a week before school let out, that I was going to be moving to a new room. So for me that added another level of stress. So of course I had to turn to crafting to try to ease some of my worries. 

This year there were a few of my co-workers who are going to be a mommy for either the first time or the 2nd time and so for a week straight we had baby shower after baby shower, one of which I co-hosted for my awesome teammate! Nonetheless this called for some card making! I enjoyed making these cards, because it was the first time that I've really made baby shower cards and I was able to make each one different and special.

First up is the card I made for my teammate. She is having a baby girl right around the time we head back to school so we wanted to have her shower before then, just in case she made her arrival before then!

I just love the baby blocks from New Arrival. The rattle and toy are from Baby Steps.

All of the stamps used  on the inside are from My Pink Stamper's Sweet Baby set

Next up is the card I made for the teacher who was right next door to me. She actually gave birth to a healthy baby boy this past weekend! She is such a sweet person and I had a lot of fun making her card as well.

Rattle is cut from Baby Steps

Sentiments and footprints are from Sweet Baby by My Pink Stamper

This is the envelope for the card. These cute little jungle friends are from a set I picked up at Michaels

And last but not least is a card I made for my co-worker who does not yet know what she is having, but she did mention that she was doing a duck theme, so I took that idea and ran with it!

I used Baby Steps for the adorable duck pin and the sentiment is from Sweet Baby. I also added some stickles to his wing and beak!

I used My Creative Time's Just a Note to Say set to stamp the larger sentiment.

So there you have it! All of the baby cards I was making in those last few days of the school year. Come back by a little later today to see the gifts that I made for my parent volunteers and my teammates! They were all super sweet goodies! Thanks for stopping by and as always I LOVE to read your comments! They fuel my desire and motivation to create!

Until Next Time...
