The Library bus!



I had a request for a card for a Library Bus driver for his 65th birthday. I found the bus on clipart, added the Library wording and then used this little Edwin, which I coloured cut and 3d in front of the bus. Photo not good as I had to take it inside.

Image - Magnolia and clipart
Papers - AC botanical set
Embellishments - circle embossing folder
Medium - he is coloured with promarkers and pencils

I would like to enter this into
The Official Magnolia Inspiration challenge - followed their sketch and Edwin
Crafts and Me - birthdays
The Poodles Parlour - when I grow up (library bus driver)
2 Sisters - anything goes
Saturday Challenge - spots and stripes

Sorry I have not been visiting much, am having a lot of trouble with my stomach ulcer which has reared its nasty head:( Hoping to get around tonight.
