Bus Driver Gift


Hi all! I hope all of you on the East coast made it through Irene okay. We made it through just fine. Only one tree fell in our back yard, but it didn't hit anything other than my wash line. That'll be easy enough to fix. We lost power at about 4 a.m. yesterday, had a generator to get us through the day, and by nighttime the power and internet were back on. Yay!!



I made this matchbook post-it note holder for Kara's bus driver. You can find the tutorial on Splitcoast under the Resources section. I followed the measurements for the 3"x3" post-its. Stamps are from There She Goes and I added some sparkly Stickles to different parts of the bus.



Today is Kara's first day of school....so on that note, I'd better go "crack the whip" (haha!) and get her out of bed, fed, dressed, pictures taken, and to the bus stop on time. Have a great day, all!

SUPPLY LIST ~
Stamps: Believe in You (There She Goes Clearstamps)
Paper: Black and Cream (PTI), Thrift Shop DP (October Afternoon)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copics
Accessories: Foam Tape, Stardust Stickles, Plaid Ribbon, Wavy Dot Punch (EK Success)
