A Get-Well Card for our Lovely Bus Supervisor

My eldest son catches a shuttle bus to & from school each day, as it’s too far for me to take him to school & also the Dept of Education pays for the priviledge of being driven to school.

Earlier this month, our lovely Supervisor – Tammy – had a small operation & had to have some time off work.

Our Bus Driver – Trevor – wanted to organize a card for her, so all the kids could sign it & give her a BIG lift to get better sooner. I suggested I would make one large enough for all the kids to sign.

Below is what I came up with:

I used a few “retired” products – because I still LOVE them.

Cardstock: Orchid Opulence (retired) & Whisper White

Stamp Set: Cottage Garden & Sincere Salutations

Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive & Pale Plum (retired)

Other: Scallop Trim Border, Versamark, Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Ribbon (retired), Old Olive Button – Playground (retired), Butterfly Punch, Cottage Wall DSP (retired), Hemp Twine, Jewels Basic Rhinestones & Large Oval Punch

The Supervisor LOVED her card so much, she cried! She is now back on the bus with the kids – it’s lovely to see her bright & happy smiley face every morning & afternoon.

Thanks for popping in! Hey I blogged for the first time in 6 weeks! Woohoo!

Mojo Monday 122

Hello & Welcome to my Blog!

Below is my Mojo Monday card – I ‘ved used colours I wouldn’t normally use. But I love the way they work well together.

The flower design isn’t actually a stamp – it’s a sheet of Designer Series Paper & I’ve just trimmed it to suit. Quite effective, don’t you think?

Cardstock: Whisper White & Basic Black

Stamp Sets: Inspired By Nature & Butterfly Prints

Ink: Basic Black

Other: Urban Oasis DSP, White Gel Pen, Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Oval Punch, Oval Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Butterfly Punch & Gold Brads


I really enjoyed making this easy card – hope you enjoyed looking at it.

Thanks for passing through!
