two days of school down and mostly successful! her class is super small – only 6 kids – 2 of which were her faves last year. Day 1 went perfectly. day 2 had a hitch at the end though. she kept asking to go wash her hands and after the third time the teacher told her no. well she got hysterical and the teacher had to call in some back up to remove her from the room until she calmed down. i asked her why she kept having to wash her hands and she said she kept touching the bottom of her shoe on accident. *sigh* so i told her that when she washes her hands with antibacterial soap it will kill the germs on her hand for awhile afterward. i don’t know if that’s true but i am hoping it cuts down on her freaking out-ness… of course i also told her to just not touch her shoes and then she would be ok…
i have been enjoying a bit of peaceful time in my craft room the last 2 days and today i have a card for the Twisted Thursday challenge over on The Outlawz – join in and you could win some really good prizes! There is a new challenge every day! The challenge today was to use punches or dies:
I started by cutting the card front (yellow bo bunny polka dot paper) using my damask decor cricut cartridge with the card feature at 5.25″. i LOVE the card fronts on this cartridge BUT i don’t use it to cut the card base because it is a waste of paper to do it that way. But when you do the card front actually covers the whole card front – i wanted mine slightly smaller. Next i cut two leaves and their shadows using the Layer 1 & 2 features – perfect and oh so easy matching embellies! a little well placed Distressed Stickles dabbed on with my finger finished it up!
i think this image is so cute – Pezza found it in her toys when we were cleaning out :P i colored on a piece of iridescent cardstock in a variety pack from paper temptress – if you have not visited her you need to! she has an amazing selection of papers! I colored with colored pencils of course!
i hope y’all have a great day!
