School Bus Card

Hello everyone. My grandson starts first grade next week, so I made him this cute school bus card for the first day of school. I welded the school bus from the Cricut Lite Recess cartridge, then added his picture to the inside window of the school bus, along with some Peachy Keen face stamps. I think he is going to laugh when he sees this. Enjoy ☺
