I like to have a few "encouragement" cards on hand. I teach young children to swim and at times they hit a bit of a brick wall and feel that they aren't getting anywhere. It is good to have a fun image and an encouraging sentiment to get them through those times:
I am entering my card into:
QKR Stampede - Sports
I have used a chevron paper from Kaisercraft which sort of looks like waves. I added some blue mesh ribbon. The image is from QKR Stampede and has been coloured with copic markers. The sentiment is from The Alley Way Stamps and is one I have used a few times.
