Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Don't tell my boss, but while he was out on vacation I brought my stamp stuff up here to the office to finish off this card. I was intrigued with the Tri-Shutter Card that was on Splitcoast ( and thought it would fit to do it for this card. IT WAS PERFECT!!

My granddaughter, Audrie, is starting kindergarten this year and I just HAD to make her a card for the occassion (her Mom, Susan Liles, just told me that I need to make her another card because she is losing her FIRST TOOTH, too)!!

Anyway, the images are from Whipper Snapper that I got some time ago and have hung on to them for all the grandchildren. The 12x12 "chalkboard" paper is from ProvoCraft and the
8-1/2x11 paper is by Masterpiece Studios (purchased at Michael's when I took delivery of the Whipper Snapper school stamps). The images were colored with my Copics using the techniques that Jen DelMuro taught us last Saturday (thank you, Jen). I really liked the way it turned out. I'm going to get a "magnifying" dot to adhere to the 24th date on the little calendar. In case you can't read the sentiment on the front, it says "The wheels on the bus.....go round and round". I did it on my computer and printed it on the cardstock.

Hope you enjoy the card and be sure to make one of these trishutters -- they're fun to make and goes toward a great looking card!!!

Thanks for stopping by and come back again real soon.

Love this card! The bus is darling - what a great "start to school" card for your grand-daughter. I know she'll love it.
