TAKs cards for Daughter

It is that time of year for all third and fourth graders and teachers...the dreaded TAKS.

My poor daughter has been stressing about these test since Christmas, (of course with a little help from school staff) She has been freakin'!!!  Since first grade my daughter has had learning problems but this year, with the help of one AMAZING Woman -- Her teacher -- she has been a different student and person.

So, of course, I made her two cards (one for each test day) for a little encouragement!


Excuse the black blob in the 2nd photo, wrote personal message before taking it (opps).

Some cards...

Hello friends, long time no blog. 

First a hug welcome to a few new friends, thank you and enjoy!

Second, let me tell you how crazy the few weeks have been. We (family) have been passing around the sickness and frankly I am tired of it and so happy everyone is getting better. However my house is nice and sparkly from all the cleaning.

I have also been busy getting ready for the Basket Case Blog Hop that I'm in and I hope you stop by on April 15 & 16 to see what everyone has created.

Finally I leave you with two cards I made as Guest Designer for Karber's Digital Images Challenge - Movies.  Let me know what you think.
