Sending love your way....


Hello!
A quick share today, as I am down with a bad cold. Breathing through my mouth.I sound like Darthvaider. I cannot stop laughing when I hear myself lol! Both my kids have NAPLAN (National Assessment Program-Literacy and Numeracy) from today till Thursday. Apparently yesterday  the teacher asked the students to relax and not get stressed. So my son put on his PJs and listened to music  the entire evening while my daughter read books. How cool is that? I used to study until the last minute and get tensed lol! I was till I dropped them at school this morning. My kids take things easy. No stress unlike the mother :)

Ok here is a card I made for two challenges.
The first is Embellish's The Bicycle Trends Challenge and for the Moxie Fab World's The Postage Challenge.

Supplies:
Cardstock: White cardstock from Wplus9
Stamp set: You've got Mail from Lawn Fawn, Postmarks from PTI and Bicycle stamp and die set from Hero Arts/Sizzix.
Inks: Tangerine Tango, Tempting Torquoise, Perfect Plum, Kiwi Kiss and Going Gray from SU. Archival Jet Black Ink.
Accessories: Bicycle stamp snd die set from Hero Arts/Sizzix
 
I wanted to do something funky with the postage stamps.Not the usual vintage postcard.
 My postcard is a snail mail. Comes by bicycle lol!
 I have used the colour from Embellish Challenge. 
Here is the challenge colours for you.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Time for school run.

See you soon.
Ta!

Very cute card, Gayatri! I really love it!

Your kids have the right idea, taking a relaxed approach to NAPLAN is better for everyone. :-) My daughter is on an in-between year this year, so she REALLY gets to relax, no test! She told me this morning that she didn't stress about NAPLAN last year, but that she didn't like the boring long days of doing tests, LOL!
