The Big News!!!

Good morning everybody! I wanted to post this bright and early, because I just can't wait any longer! :) Well, I would like to introduce you to a new challenge! It is called........ The very talented Courtney, has asked a couple of us ladies to join her in this fun challenge, and now we are asking all of you to join us too! :) The rules to the challenge are, once a month one of the challenge hosts, will come up with an object from around the house, to use in a project. It can be a card, layout, or any kind of crafty project! This month, Courtney wants us to use something from the mail! You have from today until October 9th, to come up with a project! You will need to go over to Courtney's blog and submit your project in Mr. Linky! We will pick a winner and they will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to.....

Whoot! Whoot! :) I hope you all will join us for some fun! It really makes you get creative! I can't tell you, how much fun I had with the challenge!
I don't know about you, but I am still old schooling it! I still pay alot of our bills with a check book! :) So it was perfect timing, because it was time to pay bills, and that means, we get too much mail! For my card, I used the cellophane from the front of an envelope for the pocket, and the inside of our light bill, has these cute polka dots, and a credit card (not a real one, but one trying to sell me car insurance) for the little book mark! So here is a picture of the supplies I used.
Here my card!
The little book mark, comes out of the pocket.
Then the little fabric flower (I'm lovin' these things! :) ) with the "Go Green" pin can be taken off the bookmark and wore for St. Paddy's day or Earth Day! I am also going to submit this card to the CARDS challenge , we are to make a flower on our card!
So don't forget to go by Courtney's and submit your project in Mr. Linky! And go check out the other ladies too!
