Fall Invitations

I got a call the other day from a friend on PTO at my dd's school. She asked if I would be willing to make some invitations for a Bus Drivers Appreciation Breakfast. My MIL has driven bus for 30 years and so I just couldn't say no!

We quickly picked out "fall" theme for the breakfast and I got busy. You know what I picked for my invites right? Yep, that wonderful pumpkin I love so much! Now, 17 pumpkins later, my hand is tired but I still love the pumpkin!

I used colored pencils and mineral oil on some and OMS on the others. They definitely turned out very rich in color! I used 3 layers of color on the pumpkin again and I just love how they turned out!

Here are some of them waiting in line to be assembled!

And here is the finished pile! What a fun and fast project!

I hope the bus drivers will feel special and know how much we appreciate them! They are wonderful people making sure our kids get to where they need to go everyday!
And to my dd's bus driver....Thanks Vicky, for all you do!
