Getting Cricky Blog Hop Preview Day 3!

Have you been over to Getting Cricky yet?!  I am going to keep sending you all week long!

Here is another card for you from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.  When I first got this stamp set I was thinking about ways I could use the stamps and I am pretty excited about everything you can do with them!


Today's stamp is "Challenges are just opportunities disguised."  This card is for my daughter's Title 1 teacher.  Reading is a struggle for my little one.  That is so hard when you teach other kids to read.  You wonder why you aren't able to help your kid but you can help others.  I watch her struggle and see her frustration and it is heart breaking.  HOWEVER, she has the opportunity to work with an INCREDIBLE teacher every day as a result of her reading challenges.  We are so thankful that this teacher has come into her life.  She finally has tested out of Title 1, in large part because this teacher believed in her and helped her.




This is the gift she gave her teacher to go with the card.  It is a name sign for her desk or classroom.  My kids want to give EVERYONE name signs right now!


Recipe:
Core'Dinations cardstock for the grass.  I sanded it and tore it.
The blue cardstock is Bazzill
The butterfly and flowers are K&Company
The stamp is K Andrew's from Positive Thoughts

Challenges:
Flutter by Wednesdays
