Back to School

There are heaps of challenges at the moment for 'Back to School'. The best thing about joining in challenges like this is that I have my cards ready and done for when I actually need them. Our major holidays here in Australia are over our summer months and back to school is late January. 
But look how organised I am!!!! 
I know a couple of 'book loving' children who are starting school next year so these cards will be perfect for them .... provided I put them in a safe spot and then remember where I put them. Hopefully, I will find those Christmas cards I put away last year.
I am entering this little fella in the following challenges: 
Incy Wincy Back to School    Top 3
Card Crafters Circle #38 For the Fellas
A Gem of a Challenge #54 A Boy Thing
By the Cute and Girly Men or Boys
Use your Stuff #50 Navy Blue and Orange   Top 3
Here Come the Boys #35 Teddy Bears   Top 3
The Crazy Challenge #128 Seeing Spots
Crafty Sentiments Male Cards
I have used Digi Stamp Boutique images, Authentic Free Bird Series 6 x 6 paper pad and my much loved Copic markers for both of these cards.
I am entering this little cutie in the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy Back to School
Just Some Lines Back to School
No Matter Which #2 Die Cuts and/or Punches
Marker Pop #6 Yellow   Top 3
