Card For A Bus Driver

We don't have may buses in my village - 2 each way 3 days a week but Wednesday is market day in Ringwood and we have an extra trip. It comes from Lymington and goes straight up the main road so it only takes 12 minutes compared with 34 on the service bus. We've had a great driver - he is semi retired and just does some school buses and this market trip. He always makes us laugh and  helps people on and off with their trolleys etc. Well yesterday was his last trip as he is retiring fully from next week so I wanted to make him a card to tell him how much he is appreciated. I've used this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

I've used a Forever Friends stamp from the Good Life Travel set which was perfect for him. I've coloured it with Promarkers. The papers are from the Forever Friends Good Life paper pad. The round sentiment is by Lily Of The Valley and I think the ticket stamps are by Kanban and I've added some red nail heads to finish. I'm also entering this into the first challenge at The Male Room which is Anything Goes
