rainbows.......and all their colours

today i am showing a card i made as a just a note card, chose the stamp then saw on THE CRAFTY PAD that their challenge was for a "RAINBOW" themed creation, to show awareness for children with AUTISM , especailly one little boy who`s parents are trying to raise money for. as you know my oldest son is on the autistic spectrum and my youngest is going through a diagnosis, so a cause very close to my heart!!

for this card i used the sketch over on SKETCH AND STASH#44 (on it`s side)~ i have used one of my first stamps ever bought and not used, new prima paper and my new nestabilities label dies.
THE CRAFTY PAD#88 ~ " rainbow themed"
STAMPIN` FOR THE WEEKEND#46 ~ "shabby/vintage"
ABC ~ D is for distressing

used prima papers, personal impressions stamp, nestabilities label dies, studio g word stamp, basic grey buttons.

for all my friends who knew that we have been trying to get Aaron, our eldest son, who has aspergers syndrome , into a new school after being beaten up and badly bullied at his last school ~our appeal for a new school , which we felt would be so much better for him, was not successful. today i am totally drained from the 2 hour ordeal trying to put our case to the head teacher and panel, just days after speaking and fighting our case to the education welfare, senco and all the other people in suits that aaron could not possibly go back to his last school, after being home since the end of april. where do we go now???

Oh Nessy!!! I am so sorry to hear that! What is wrong with people-to not think of the child first!!? I wish some of the answers for you, but unfortunately I have no suggestions--but will pray that someone does!!! Good luck - and your card is absolutely gorgeous!!!
