I am part of today's hop, but after collecting a very upset daughter from school, I've had to abandon everything for some "mummy & me" time.  I will photograph my card later tonight when she's gone to bed and then upload it. So please bear with me.  I am very upset for her at the moment.  All I will say is that some parents are really not fit to be parents if they bring their children up to disregard the feelings of their friends.  It's not some petty playground squabble either, but something that has been running in the background, unbeknownst to us. I'm not quite sure why human beings can't treat each other with love and respect and consider each other's feelings. I could go on and on about this, but I know it won't change anything, it won't change people. So I will stop there. It just makes me so very sad.

  10. Oh hun! Don't worry about it. I hope things get better for your little one. I know exactly what you mean. It's been many years ago, my daughter came home with two black eyes, no call from school, a bully had picked on her. I had to take her and have her checked she looked so horrible. The bully got kicked out of school, but the damage was done. Hang in there!

    Hope your daughter is ok after some huggles from Mum

  21. I came back today to check on your card; It is way way cute! I am loving how the Kenny image just really stands out surrounded by so much distressed. I really do love it all!

    I know what you mean about kids being hurtful. My son just started kinder this year and I will tell you that some kids just love making fun of others and poking at them. My son wanted a mohalk for a long time and when he started school I let him get it. The first day he was just so so happy to go with his new cut to school. Then he just refused to go that way. I spoke to everyone I could at school to see what was going on. It seems that a few kids were making fun of him. He is now doing better and actually has friends. Sorry for going on about this but I understand that some kids can be really mean and just hurtful; and that makes me sad!

    Hope your daughter is doing well:0)


  22. Love those colour, its a greate card !!
