Thank you for Bus Driver


I think this is finally wrapping up any school themed projects I have least for the next few months.

This is the first year my son has had to take the bus to school. His elementary school was close enough to walk. The bus drivers have tough jobs. I sent a treat on the first day and did a little something at Christmas. Although my son doesn't think she appreciates it, (She hasn't come across exactly as the most friendliest person) I feel it important to thank them for the important job they have!

I think this is maybe one of my favorites out of the recent set of cards I have created.

I started with a blue textured card base onto which I added my school bus patterned paper down the middle. I had a scrap of apple paper on my desk that I added about 3/4 of the way down.  I took a length of blue twine and wrapped the card front and tied in a bow to the left side. I had some other scraps on the desk that I used to create a frame for my focal image.
The bus is cut out using my Cricut. I used the Recess cartridge. I added it to the PTI limitless layer circles. The sentiment is part of the GWP I received a few years back from Peachy Keen Stamps. A final finishing touch of enamel dots in the upper right of the frame to finish it off.

I am sharing at: Crafting from the heart - Anything Goes, Pause Dream Enjoy - Circles, D.L. Art - June Linky, Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes, 613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Cardz TV - Anything Goes.

I hope you enjoyed all my school projects and various ways to use up those papers. (I think they secretly have more papers daily because they seem to multiply)

Please have a Terrific Thursday!

I totally agree -- they have one TOUGH job!!! We had a teachers strike here in AZ this year, and I was more worried about the bus drivers, cafeteria workers and support staff, as they had no income during that time. I loveeeeeeeeee this! LOVING that bus ... and LOVING that you did this for her!!!!
