House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #126

It's Monday Again, and time for another House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.
Thanks to everyone that played along with us for our "Double Trouble" Challenge.
This time, the theme is "Back to School or Work.
The children are all preparing to go back to school, and some of you have been
vacationing away or at home and are returning to work, so we thought this would
be a great theme for this challenge.
I chose back to school for my card.
