Bus Driver Card

So rewind to about a month ago and I was deep in the end of year card making craziness. I have no idea who came up with the brilliant idea of modifying the loads of love truck into a school bus, but my sister (the school bus driver oddly enough) was the one who showed it to me.
Seriously isn't it the cutest?

I even wrote our school name on the side. I paper pieced the windows and tires ( I just think it looks better that way and I am sure I saw it on someones blog/gallery but I have no idea where since it has been awhile.)
Fortunately, I do remember where the idea of the gift card pocket came from. Roxy showed it as a stand alone card on her blog, found here. I adapted it to sit inside a standard invitation sized card. We collected at the bus stop and put in a Panera Card. I hope she enjoyed it.

SU Materials Used: Stamps: Loads of Love; Ink: Basic Gray, YoYo Yellow; Paper: Basic Black, Bashful Blue, YoYo Yellow, Whisper White, Basic Gray, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Brown
