Sophie's Challenge Card

This is Sophie's Card she made a few weeks ago and im going to enter it into the
Simon Says Childrens Challenge....Easter Birthday Card
As you may know by now we have pulled Sophie out of School due to the hurrendous effect the bullying has had on her.Kids can be so cruel from taunting her baout her Dyslexia,to racist remarks to pure bullying.So im home educating her at the moment and yes any excuse to do had project to finish so asked her to make acard for me ,so this is the result below,it is now with it's rightfull owner so i can upload it.
I actually let her loose with my craft stuff and my copics......must be mad but have to say i think she has done a great effort,not a bad job for her first attempt with copics.Sophie has made christmas cards and loves Stamping Candles,but never attempted birthday/ Easter cardscards ect before so this is a first for her!Think im gonna have to put lock on my craft room!!
Sophie is 12 yrs old and loves art which she is good at this is all her own work,cant you tell not like mum's with loads primas
Hope you like her creation for your challenge

Update on Bullying and Couple of Creations

Morning all hope your keeping well before i get onto my cards &projects today.I must apologise for not being a good blogger this week.But my time has been some what taken up with the Bullying situation at school.Time seems to go so fast ,especially when your not getting very far with the school.They told us we had to follow the policy on making a complaint .So we did but unfortunately the Headmistress couldnt be bothered to reply in the given time she should of!!!So i have now taken further and thankfully we have some one from parent support with us 100%.After a 3hr visit yesterday do feel at least were not alone.Sophie is still off school .Yesterday was the first day we actually saw her smile,she went with her dad to work.He works in a college as Network Manager they have already broken up for Easter they get 3 weeks .She loved it ,and even one teacher there offered to help her with her studies!We now have a big meeting on Tuesday at 14.oo with the head as i rang her PA yesterday asking why the head hadn't written back to my letter in the given time scale that was printed in the policy booklet that they told us we had to follow.Funny enough she just laughed!!!Says it all really!So we arent getting far,but what really amazes me when i was at school you had couple days off we had truency officer round we have not heard or seen a single person.What has angered me alot is on Monday knock on the door 2 of her friends from school came to see how she was (they dont realise why she's off)It was lovely of them to come,but what they told my daughter absolutely fummed me no other word.They told Sophie that she had been moved out of all her classes into this class guess what where the bully is!!!Work that out,now first of all i think we should have had an explaination into why ?secondly it would have been nice to be informed first!The reason her friend new was every lesson they take the register and call Sophie's name out.
We are not taking Sophie to the meeting as she isnt upto it,and also i think it is better as this head i know will not talk to us and just sit and be sweetness and nice to Sophie.We want answers basically on why they arent doing anything about it.So i am now going to write everything down i want answers for before going to the meeting so i can go through the list when im there.Otherwise with my brain fog i will forget!Thankyou so much for all your kind cards sent to Sophie,messages of support for us all you truly are a great bunch of friends!
Thankyou with all my heart,& i will let you know the outcome of Tuesday!
Here is my first card this is another Tent Card made using SUcard & Designer paper.The image and sentiment is from the Gina K Designs set "Elegant Flowers".Coloured with copics and glossy accents added to the inner yellow flowers to stand out.Faux stitching used with ink essentials pen,a mixture of punched inner flowers & prima flowers,bow from papermania capsule collection and ribbon from stash.Tools used:Big shot ,Nestabilities Labels 2,scor-pal,Su Flower punch
This has been entered into the following Challenges:
Fun with Shapes & More:Faux Stitching
Gina K Designs:Blast from the Past
Raise the Bar:April Fool ...always to cute images never just flowers swo outta my comfort zone!!
