Don't forget the school bus driver! Thank you card #6

It can't be easy concentrating on driving that big bus with 50 or so kids bouncing around in their seats behind you.  And they are yelling.  And sometimes they are throwing things.  And they might go on a little walk up the aisle for one reason or another.  Oh the poor driver!  He or she is not exactly transporting little angels with hands folded in their laps.
Today's card is for my grandsons' bus driver.

I really wanted to use this CTMH mustache stamp on one of the thank you cards.  I asked Matt if his or his brother's teacher was a man.  He said no.  So I asked if any of the woman teachers had a mustache.  Not exactly out of the realm of possibility.   The answer was still no.  I explained why I asked.  He thought for a minute and then, as if a light had turned on in his little 2nd grade head, he smiled and said the bus driver was a man.

Inside sentiment was computer generated; bus stamp is from a children's set of Melissa and Doug play stamps; gingham is a self sdhesive fabric tape; school bus dp was embossed; and red bling are candies.

Now we are off to see young Matthew portray Rudyard Kipling in the school's Wax Museum.  I believe he will be sporting a mustache himself.

  4. For some reason I come to the conclusion that you must be a regular school bus rider, LOL! Great card.

    1. Not a bus driver, but I routed the buses for 2 school districts for many years, listened to many parent complaints, and many more bus driver issues. Used to have nightmares that they wouldn't have enough drivers and I would have to drive. Good guess, though.

  5. Great idea, Debi! I'm sure most people forget about the bus driver, one of the most important people for getting our kids to and from school safely. :-D

Make sure to stop by and join us again in another Challenge starting tomorrow. Leaving you with God's Word in Colossians 3:23-24 which says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." Have a blessed day!
