One Powerful Hour/Creative Corner Challenges


A cute birthday card which is fitting or 2 challenge this week. One Powerful hour has a "Children" theme and Creative Corner is to make a "Birthday Card". I have used scrap papers and edged with a chalk ind pad. The stamp is made and supplied my my local craft shop, a really sweet image I think. Coloured her with Copics. Added flowers, brad and sentiments which I think is Hero Arts. Kids back to school tomorrow. Daniel has been offered a 3 week trial at another mainstream school with a special needs unit attached. The unit only opened a few months ago and holds a max of 12 children so Daniel should be at ease there. He'll probably stay on till the end of the school year all going well, but we still need to place him in High School next September and are still trying to fight the LEA for funding for the school in Hampshire which is just for children with Aspberger's Syndrome. No doubt we'll be back to tribunal at the end of the year. Need to get the kids bits ready for tomorrow, me and hubby will be taking Daniel to school and he will then be taken and brought home by taxi everyday (which the LEA fund) as the school is 45mins away. Cant be in 3 places at once, not unless I clone myself. Have a good week, been raining here all morning, looks like summer is well and truly over.
