The cutting cafe blinkie
Happy World Card Making Day!! 
I hope everyone has a great day of crafting planned, if not, you can find some great stamps sets and files to play with over at The Cutting Cafe! Regina has such wonderful cut files and images for all occassions and events, always a pleasure to create with. So head on over there and see what you can find! And what's even better is today in honor of World Card Making Day, Regina is offering a fabulous sale!!!!!!! She's offering a 2 for 1 special until 11:59pm, October 2, 2010! That's any set and you can get another for free at equal or lessor value. Click HERE for more details!

The project I'm posting today is made with the Bus Shaped Card - Cutting File. What's great about Regina's files is that you can use them with your cutting machine or print the pdf file and cut with your scissors, which is how I made my card today. Sometimes I just feel like creating the old fashioned way, and The Cutting Cafe allows me to do that! I have a great friend that drives a bus and she's been a little stressed lately, so I hope this card puts a little smile on her face. I tried to make it after the colors of the schools she picks up for, and put the name her kiddos call her on the side of the bus where the school name should go and then personalized it with her bus number. Of course I had to use the cute little monkeys that I found on some paper from the Animal Crackers stack from DCWV. We need to remember to thank our bus drivers, so Michele, this ones for you!!
Thanks for looking and hope ya like!
