For most of us, the start of school is near or has already happened.  In my famuly, we have a preschooler, a kindergartner, and 2 second graders.  And, 3 of the 4 ride a bus to school.  This Grandma wanted to acknowledge this milestone with a card of course!

Although I created 4 cards, one for each of the kids, I am only showing 2 because they are all basically the same.  I started with a Whisper White Notecard.

The names were created using the Little Letters Thinlits & Basic Black Cardstock.  It's the first time that I have used the letters and what a surprise.  They are so easy to work with and they produce a nice size letter.


After scouring the Stampin' Up! catalog for a school bus, I came across a way to create one using the photopolymer What's Your Type stamp set.  Lining up photopolymer stamps is so easy!  Thanks to for the idea.  Of course, I had to add my own touches too.

My road was created with the ever so useful stamp set - Gorgeous Grunge.  It was an afterthought so it was stamped after the bus was in place on my card.  But, it worked just fine – whew!  

The wheels on the bus go round and round with Regals Candy Dots in the center.


The envelope gets some special attention from the Envelope Liners Framelits & piece of Crushed Curry paper from the Regals Designer Paper Stack.  If I just knew how to draw, my bus could be filled with children.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
