tilda and her purple squares

well another day, another challenge, today i`m showing my card for the magnolia challenge, which this week the theme is "serendipity" ~ using small squares no more than 2x2 inches!!(hope that`s right!!) another card that looked better in my imagination than on card!!! looks better before tilda was added!! :~)
used lots of ripped hand made paper (mounted it on pink card), tilda with crow~feet, fence scene, and high hopes sun!! ooooooooh and plenty of glitter!!

i would just like to say a very big thankyou for all your support, -and hugs ~i needed everyone ~but please don`t be so nice ~as you started me blubbering again!!

Great card, what a brilliant way to use up some odds and ends, I just end up with a box of them!
I love the sun!
Glad you feel a little better, like you say Terries blog is truly inspirational, her layouts are amazing but I also think her posts about "life experiences" are so touching and I would imagine you can identify with some her expressed thoughts in the posts for "autism awareness" that she made in April. She has a way with words :-D
Hugs - ChrissyX

great card love it
oh poor aaron people really don't understand do they how their lives can be so disrupted just by a change of teacher
as for the bullying this makes me so angry what are they doing about it poor lad had enough to deal with just getting through each school day without being bullied too
i was so glad my lad got his place in the wonderful special school that he went to his school years were happy and productive and he is now on a mainstream college course doing his btec next year so don't give up nessy he'll get there is there an autistic outreach team attached to the school if there is call them in and get some support
take care you know where i am if you want a chat
