Birthday Card ~ Fall Is Coming {1st Post}

Tuesday was the first day of school for our students.
It was so fun to see all those sweet and excited faces.
While the start of a new school year marks a time for things to slowdown 
for a lot of you, it is the opposite for those of us in the education biz.
Autumn is coming and the leaves will soon be falling.
Right now I'll take and totally enjoy the few sunny days we have left.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Elephant  from the Leaf Your Cares Behind digi set from Deedee's Digis.
*Sentiment cut using the Happy Birthday Border from Lawn Fawn.
*N2, N4 and E000 markers from Copic.
*GR3, Y03 and OR4 markers from Chameleon.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
