spring is in the air

good morning , well the weekend is here, paul now has to work saturdays (so home alone with both boys ~help!!) ..and i am showing another easter card , today i am using the sketch over on SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY (turned upside down ~is that allowed??) also followed the following challenges :~
SIMON SAYS STAMPS ~ "easter/spring and some glimmer/glitter"
CREATIVE CRAFT ~ "2`s company" ~ (used 2 papers, 2 flowers,2 nesties!!)
CHARISMA CARDZ#12 ~ "spring has sprung"
FUSSY AND FANCY#7 ~"easter"
SECRET CRAFTER ~"pink, green and flowers ( not sure this qualifies with the added yellow ~well it is easter!!!!) flying close to the wind today aren`t i???

anyway i used papermanis papers, lili of the valley bunny (again), nestabilities pinking circles, quickutz swirls and sizzix corner die ~with plenty of glitter on eggs and corner.

HELP!! can someone tell me how to keep a post at the top of the page for 2 weeks?? i have a stamp up for grabs on monday and need it to stay on the top of my posts!! please............... someone!!! you know me and computers!!
well hope you have a wonderful weekend and hope to catch up with you sometime ~i have been trying to visit you all over the last few days!!
ps ~for those who have e-mailed me about pauls job ~he was found guilty again (after 8 months) of all 4 charges ~so is now going to court ~we so have to fight this injustice.
also i am 99% sure i am going to home educate aaron, he is just so scared of going back, especially as the two boys are still in the school. so any mums who have a child with autism and home educate ~some helpful advice would be wonderful.
sorry rambling today aren`t i???

Oh fabulous Nessy, love the colours and not forgetting the sweet image.
To keep the post at the top, what I do is publish post, then edit the page, at the bottom it says Post option and in the right hand corner it has date and time. Keep it in the same format and change date. Hope that helps.
Sorry to hear you're still having a tough time.

oH NESSY! I am so sorry to hear that-well, keep your heads up high--there is so much unjust in this world-and you never realize it until you are stuck in a position where it happens to you or your family!!! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers! I think that I would choose to home educate with everything that has happened at the school too!! Good luck to you with that-I am sure you will do a great job of it!

hugs to you at this stressful time. I didn't home educate my boys, but a good friend has for a few years and very successfully - she was a teacher before she had her children though. The children started in state school and then one was having a tough time with bullying so she home educated them both. After a couple of years one child asked to go back to school as she was missing her friends but the other was home educated until secondary school level. It's not an easy thing to do but can be very rewarding and is made a little easier if you join in with other home educators in the area - otherwise it can be quite lonely for both teacher and child.
I love the card you made, such a cute LOTV bunny - I must get this one!
hugs, annie x
