Mans best friend

Oh  I think Andrew is all scienced out, school teacher this morning for 2 hours and done an  English essay practice question and then chemistry and then 2 and a half hours physics revision all on electricity with Ohms law and resistance and electical conductivity. When we got to wiring a plug I could see him glazing over so it's break time, even lunch didn't restore him, maybe we'll do some more later, nuclear fusion and fision next. I actually feel I could sit next to him and do these exams , it's amazing how things come back to you, things you can't remember doing at school all those years ago in my case,oops showing my age now.

This card I did with a few challenges in mind, I'm actually not that daunted any more by male cards but can honestly say having male orientated images does help such alot. Now pretty pink girly cards is another matter, they scare me and I find them so hard to get right so I am happy with them.

I used a high hopes image that so reminds me of my brother when he was little, different kind of dog but inseprable nevertheless. The layout is for lili of the valley , which I rotated . I think it might just be easier if I just list the challenges below, then I might get chance to finish the post before have to go and do dinner and more physics. Thanks for popping by and all the kind wishes for Andrew with his exams. I really do feel for all the teenagers doing exams but its just a necessary evil of life and something most of us have to do.
