Welcome to this weeks challenge at MFPaHC!! This week we are going green. Yep--we are recycling Christmas cards that we recieved over the past holidays. Now for me, most of the cards that I recieved were either picture type cards or beautifully hand made cards. Sort of made my deciding which one to use a little easier.

So, here is my card for the week:

And here is what the original card looked like:

What I've used:

I inadvertently used a sentiment from a set that is no longer available
JOY JOY JOY stamp set offers lots of great options
Memento Tuxedo black ink
Paper & ribbon from my stash

Have a great week!! And HAPPY STAMPING!!!


  1. Beautiful card! Love the sentiment and ribbon you added! I found only about 3 or 4 old Christmas cards...(I wasn't ready to part with the few I received this year) and one of them was from the same creator as yours! I recognize the art style! My image was different but the style is the same. Love what you came up with. I ended up choosing a different card to recycle.

  2. Kate--this is wonderful! Very creative use of the original card. TFS

  3. So pretty, Kate. This was a perfect card to recycle. I really like red and blue together for Christmas colors.

  4. Your cards remind me of the Less is More/More is More challenge. I love what you did with the original card to make a stepped-up version.

  5. Kate,
    Your card is so very cute - big smiles!
