My Time to Craft Challenge Card

Hiya to all my fellow bloggers. Heres me entry for this weeks "My Time To Craft" Challenge which is animals. Its not a very good photo but I can blame the lighting due to the bad weather were having ATM. I used my monkey stamp from Stampendous and coloured with Promarkers. Used a border punch along the bottom and threaded with pink ribbon and added a rub on sentiment and butterfly.
Daniel had his 1st full day at the new school on friday. We really wern't sure how it was going to be for him. He was picked up and returned by taxi so we waited with baited breathe for him to come through the door and was pleasantly surprised when he walked in quite cheary!!!! He said he'd had a good day and was happy to go back. The satalite children work on a reward basis, so if they do the work, they get up to 15mins reward time at the end of each day to play with or game or something and on friday, all satalite children get 30mins golden time, so that worked really well. Daniel hasn't done a maths class for many months now as he would sit there and refuse to do the work, he did intially refuse but the reward time seem to have some effect and for a first, he done all of his lessons, he even went into a mainstream classroom to join in and it was nice that a learning assistant went with him so we will always have peace if mind that he's getting 100% support there. All in all, looks like its going to benefit Daniel and hoping he will get to stay on after his trial. Wont continue to bore you but we've waited what seems a very long time for this to happen and I am very proud of my son for at least trying. Have a good weekend!
