End of the school year thank you gifts

I know it's a little late but these were meant to be for a blog hop that I didn't end up participating in, so now I can show them off.

My youngest son is Autistic and he is in a classroom with 9 other Autistic students. The teacher and aides are  awesome and work wonders with these kids. They put up with a lot too. I could never do it, one is plenty for me. lol I like to show our appreciation at the holidays and the end of the school year with a little something for each of them. This year I made these cards and put a Starbucks gift card in each one. They were really fun to make and pretty easy too. I cut the coffee cup from Cricuts "Love You Latte" cartridge. 

The inspiration for the card as well as the background came from  eighteen 25. You can find it here if you're interested in making your own. It's a free download. =)

I wasn't sure my sons bus driver was a Starbucks lover so I made him this School Bus card with a gift card to 7-11 tucked inside. He is so awesome and takes great care of my son, we had to show him some love as well. The cutting file is from Creative Kuts. It was a freebie that was actually a mini album cover that I turned into a card. If you love cute cutting files, check them out!

 Thanks for stopping by and checking out my thank you gifts. I hope I inspired you today!
