Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #103

Oh, it is so close I can almost taste it...
Back To School Time!!!
Not that I work any less than in the summer, but it does seem like I have a couple more hours of quiet time when the kiddos are in school and that makes all the difference in the world!
So if you are like me and soon to get that all important quiet time, I have a card sketch for you to play with. I designed this one for Sketch-N-Scrap. We have a super fun prize to win this month so make sure to upload your take on the sketch to the SNS blog for a chance to win.
I am still having fun playing with my crazy birds. They're just too much fun. And I get to color with my copics. It's just a win win.
