School Thank You Cards

My class is taking a field trip next week to the zoo.  I currently have ten parents signed up as chaperones.  I wanted to send them a special thank you for going with us.  I made these cards about four years ago for the first time that our grade level ventured to the zoo.  I thankfully saved the design on my Gypsy so I was able to do a bit of adjusting for my paper and cut them out and piece them together.  I love this bus from the Doodlecharms cricut cartridge.  The road and grass is from one of the paper doll cartridges and the cloud is the Fiskars cloud punch.  All paper is Stampin' Up!

I used the white distress marker to make the lines on the road.  It worked really nice for this project.  (Not sure how I feel about those yet.  I bought a two pack (black/white) from HL and only the brush tips work on them.  I returned them for a second package and the same thing.  Has anyone else had this problem?  I've contacted Ranger twice and they have yet to return my email about the product issues so I don't know what I think about that yet!)

I used this Martha Stewart custom stamp setting kit to stamp out the school's name on the side of each bus.  It fit perfectly and was the perfect size. (I did blur out the first name of the school) I really like this stamp kit.  I noticed that they have a couple new fonts at my Michaels.  I'm going to have to pick up the loop script alphabet set because I think it is so cute.

If you have any questions, please let me know!  Thanks for looking.
