Teacher Gift Sets

Hi everyone. Sorry, I haven't posted a blog entry in a week. I don't know where my time has gone.
These are some teacher gifts I made a few weeks ago to thank my son's teachers. I bought some travel mugs at Starbucks that you can personalize. I have one myself with a photo collage of my Sweeties. Kalino's teachers loved mine, so I knew even several months ago that similar mugs would be a great teacher gift. I coordinated the design of the cards and the mugs.
I used this sketch from Karen Giron for
my cards. I forgot to post them on her blog June 11th. I remembered about an hour after the deadline. Oh, well.
On these cards and mugs I used the Chloe's Closet set of goodies by Making Memories.
I tried to place a Stampin' Up! order earlier, but the website went down. All of you were ordering too, right? That's OK, I'm not in a rush. I may wait under the Bermuda Bay ink is back in stock, since you can't even order it yet. I heard about the ink problem with this color.
I've been itching to craft. I've had my QuicKutz Silhouette for a week now and I've only used it a few times.
