Hi folks! This card was made using my favourite 'New Home' stamp by Hobby Art. The word stamp is also one of theirs. I stamped the image just above the centre and using 'Post It' notes, I masked the design and added the green and blue colours using Color Box fluid chalk based inks. I then added the words and the flower, which is a little 'Anita's' stamp.
What a dreadful day weatherwise. My first day back at school and what a damp one it was. I got to the pick up point far too early but I'd rather that than be late. I am driving a brand new bus and I have three new 7 year old boys onboard. For the afternoon run, I had to do 2 drop off points. When I got to the first destination, I discovered I had a new boy who was on the wrong bus. I had picked him up in the morning but his parents wanted him dropped at a different place in the afternoon. No one told me. Well by the time I found out, the other boys must have told him goodness knows what, because he had big fat wet ones rolling down his cheeks. I wanted to give him a big cuddle but you can't do that these days. So I tried to make him laugh. I eventually got him to his parents very late in the pouring rain. They were OK about it but it wasn't a great impression for their son's first day. However, he was safe with me. By the time I got back to the school, very late, the boss was there, full of apologies. He's so nice you can't be mad for long. As payment, I made him park the bus in a small gap in the playground. I could have done it but it would have taken ages!!
