Back To School Challenge @ Penny's...

The new challenge is up at Penny's and this time around the challenge is "Back To School". My kids have been back at school for about a week and this is the first time that all 3 are going a full day. I can actually clean my house and it stays clean, so that means more time for "Crafting"!! YIPPEE!!

Okay, so onto my card...

LinkEverything on this card was pulled from my stash...I really need to use my older stuff more often. lol The digi is a freebie from Anne Bodil, she was colored with color pencils.
