friends ~thankyou!

well i`m starting today with a card using my first ever pennyblack stamp, for the "pennyblack saturday challenge". i thought this card was ideal for a card for emma (elf~creations), as i wanted to send her a thankyou ,and some of my new magnolia images, (for sending me this gorgeous card and images below).
for my penny black card i used "everlasting" stamp, papers and ribbon from my stash, quickutz photo corners, then finished with some glitter.


as you can see , emma has sent me me this gorgeous card and images, even a capital "N" with the name nessy!! ~a very big thankyou emma, it is so heart warming to know, at what is being a difficult time , there are still some lovely crafting friends!! a big thankyou and hug!!


last but no means least is this fantastic card from maureen (mycasestudies), my SBS13 card swop partner, the amount of work gone into this card is unbelievable ~thankyou so much maureen, there was also lots and lots of images, including "here`s a scoop" from my favourite things, i did photograph them but cannot find the photo in my pictures (so sorry). thankyou again maureen for your card and images ,i`m so glad you liked mine ,and sorry i didn`t enclose some images!!
this card arrived yesterday morning , and really did brighten my day , for you who know me ,understand things can be difficult with my oldest son aaron (who has aspergers), at the moment he is finding school challengeing ,as he was beaten up by a class "mate" a few weeks ago ,and this boy is still picking on him ,to add to his problems his class teacher has been away for three weeks now , so the class are having a different supply teacher in everyday ~so you can imagine the disruption /excitement , which aaron his finding so diffficult , with others behaviour and noise levels. so yesterday he refused to get out of the car and go to school ,he cried for nearly 2 hours , so upsetting for me , got him into schol , where i did get some help and was able to leave him with the pastral carer. the school did phone me later and said he was having quiet time, with another child who was also finding the classroom challenging!!
lewis is still ill, with a cold/cough virus with a ichy rash all over him!! so i was physically/emotionally exhausted yeasterday , so i`m afraid i didn`t visit any of your blogs yesterday (just cried and enjoyed some chocolate)
hopefully today ,things wil be easier, and i can pop around your blogs .byeeeeeeeeeeee xx

Awwww come here babe and have a big (((hug))). Don't ever apologise to us
lot on here. You have so much on your plate and I hate to thinking of you being at home alone crying. Kids can be so cruel. Just remember that not only are you a fantastic friend to all of us...you are a fantastic Mum to the boys and they will always remember the love and support you give them. Keep smiling babe. Emma.x

Aww Vanessa, *big hugs*! Sounds like you are having a rotton time. Hope things will improve and that teacher gets his/her butt back into class soon (the school should be doing something about that boy)!!

Also, I feel guilty about not visiting etc sometimes but then remembered this is all just supposed to be FUN and we shouldn't feel that sort of pressure, so don't worry about it!

Take care of yourself now and stock up on choccies. xx

Vanessa, I am glad you got some lovely cards and they are lovely. The one you did with the Penny Black is gorgeous.
But, you shouldn't be feeling so sad by yourself. If this keeps on, I think something needs to be done. Have you ever read Terries blog and the trouble she had with bullies at her sons school? The link is from mine and called "Alien Adventures". Her son experienced terrible problems due to autism and the bullying became a major problem...
Anyway big hugs to you - ChrissyX
