This past school year, my DD went to middle school and rode a different bus from her brother. She absolutely loved her bus driver. And, in return, he spoiled her horribly (along with the rest of the bus). On the really hot days, he had bottled water for anyone who wanted it. He bought cupcakes for the whole bus on my DD's birthday. He had even promised to take her to Wendy's for an end-of-the-year treat. Due to unforseen circumstances, he was unable to do the Wendy's trip, but did give her a gift certificate. Well, with budget cuts and changing school times, a whole bunch of drivers lost their jobs for next year, with his being one of them. So, I wanted to make him a special card and placed a little gift in it. This uses the For Father retired set --- love it!!! It was colored with blender pens and a little texture added with the square lattice folder. To give it some interest, but not make it too girly (or, hopefully, not girly at all), I added the gold brads and a little hemp twine.

I really appreciate you stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!!!


  1. Great card for a great person. I'm so sorry to hear he was laid off. I sure hope he'll find something quickly. Card is so well put together - love the coloring, texture, and added touches - nice!
