Back To School Card with Attached Bookmark!

OMG! I am in one heck of a mess! Scrapbooking supplies from one end of my basement to the other. I am waiting for new flooring to arrive and now I have decided the walls need painting, so yes that means more mess. LOL! But I did go down there last night and make a card for a few of my favorite challenges.
 
 The front of the card I designed using and this weeks Freebie from Bear Hugs Art and Scrap and my Cameo.
 For the card base I used a piece of card stock that measured 4.5 X 12 inches . I scored the card at 4.5 inches and then used a perforated score line at 9 inches. This way I was able to make a bookmark that could be torn off and used by my granddaughter who loves to read. I used both my Cricut and my Cameo for this card! ( I love the sound of both machine just humming away at the same time! )

For the bookmark I used Kate's ABC and Recess Cricut cartridge for the cuts.
I found the poem on the Internet and just smiled when I saw it and said this is just perfect for Jan!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges.

Cameo Creations- Back to School
Fantabulous Cricut Challenges- Back to School
Exporing Cricut- back to School using the following colours, red, green, black, purple, yellow, orange, blue and brown.

Oh Jenny I know what you mean about your craftroom being in a mess. I have been painting, removing stuff and adding new storage for months and it is still not finished. Working around a mess has become the norm for me. lol

Love your card too cute. The owl is adorable and love how you made it to become a bookmark, how creative.

Would love to have you link up to our
SVG Saturday Challenge.

Hi Jenny,
Your comment on my blog was so funny, I had to come over and say-- the funniest part is that the video I made is only 2 minutes long and you had so many interruptions.
