School Bus



Here's a card I made for Kara's bus driver, who is SUCH an awesome person! She not only introduced herself to Kara and helped her find a seat toward the front of the bus (kindergarten kids sit up front) on that first day of school, but she also took the time to introduce herself to me and DH. She has to be THE most cheerful bus driver I've ever met. She's getting this card along with some chocolate-covered pretzels.

The adorable School Bus stamp is from Whipper Snapper Designs. The black matted square behind the bus is up on foam tape and I added Stickles to accent the bus.

Have a great day!

hehe! That bus is so cute! Great idea to give her a card! Sometimes they are overlooked and really they have a very important job. After all they have our children to take care of. So thoughtful of you Denise!

Your card is adorable and I'm sure she'll love it......but....you might want to hold off on those pretzels for a few days or she'll have a bag of chocolate syrup with pretzels! LOL!!

I can't believe it.. I HAVE this stamp too.. I bought it to make cards for my son's kindergarten bus driver. She was so awesome.. Doesn't it make you feel good to have a great driver. Especially when they are so little..Love this card and stamp.

Adorable! And so thoughtful of you, sounds like the bus driver is a keeper. Glad that she helped your little one and also just being so sweet and talking to you and DH. That is what I like to hear. :0)

I sometimes wonder how school bus drivers survive! What a wonderful token to give to her. I'm sure she was very touched to get it. Wonderful to know Kara is in good hands :)

What a cute card!! Love it!!

Krissy said...

love this card! My son has a bus driver as wonderful as your daughter's. My little guy had a few rough mornings last year (in Kindergarten) Mrs. O was so kind and loving toward him and had him sit right behind her and she would reach back and hold his hand when she stopped the bus all the way to school. Such a wonderful woman!

I like to make little treats for her throughout the year, this bus image would be great to add to my collection! Looks like I need to do a little shopping!
