Busman's Holiday

I think most hobbies seem weird to others. My partner chuckles when he sees me reading 'Craft Stamper' magazine, seemingly oblivious to the comedy value of 'Bus and Coach Preservation Monthly'.

He asked me to make some cards for his classic bus enthusiast friends. He found a photo in a book of a bus stuck in snow and I scanned this for the image. I used a mix of die-cuts, stamps and punches for the sentiment and embellishments and added clear gems for extra-Christmas-ness. He was really pleased with them and in fact, got me to make one more after the photo was taken.
I'd like to enter:
