Lili of the Valley - Anything Goes

What a week! I have had real problems at school this week for my daughter. She has a speech development delay that is affecting her language and literacy. Well last week for the first time ever she said "I don't want to go to school mummy" and again this week.
I asked her "why?" her reply " Because ***** shouted at me in our special class"!!! My mind tells me that is not the way to approach children with learning difficulties. They need someone who is patient and kind. Not someone shouting " Get on with your work".
I have been in and out dealing with it and feel quite upset with it all. I have never made an issue of her learning difficulties. Yes I shout at her when she is naughty but never in relation to her speech etc. She is undergoing some more tests at school and may need to see an education psychologist.
Anyway of course to alleviate all the worry I have been creating. I have made this christmas card for the Lili of the valley Challenge which is an Anything Goes challenge with a blog hop to launch their new range.
I have coloured the image with promarkers and copics I love this image of the boys renacting the nativity, oh so cute x I have teamed it with some papers from the "We Three Kings Traditional " collection available at Pascale's PAD
I added a sentiment some ribbon and a charm too from my stash.

Image - Lili of the Valley
Papers - Pascale's PAD
Medium- Copics, Promarkers, memento
embellishments- stash
sentiment - stamps away
die - nellie snellen

Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale

Hi hunni love your card the image is fab. I hope you get things sorted with your daughter at school sweetie, its not the right way to go on at all my daughter goes to special school & I would not be impressed if anyone shouted at her. They are supposed to be able to deal & handle things in the right manner when it comes to learning difficulties or disablement for that matter. I hope she settles down & starts looking forward to school. Snending you all huge hugs hunni.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xx
