I know, you have probably been asking, "Where has Jen been?" and telling me there is a glare on the picture. Well, for starters, the school year will begin soon, so I needed to work in my classroom. Got my classroom all done, then my principal said I had o move to another room. GGRRRR! At least there is an EXCELLENT custodial staff at my school to get it all done Wednesday morning. So, in the past 3 days I have set up TWO classrooms for the school year.

Now, on to this card. Sweet Sketch Wednesday posted challenge #10, and I had NOOOOO IDEAAA what I was going to do with it, then I was out shopping today with my DD and ran across some items to give as gifties to my fellow grade-level co-workers. I thought it would be nice to give them each a card to remind them to take time for themselves this year (because teachers have a habit of NOT doing that!)

The inside of this card reads: Remember to take time to play each day!
