Speedy Fox & Friends 141 - Recycle a Christmas Card

Hello!  Are you settled back into routine yet?  We had to get back at it on Thursday as that's when school started back.  I have to say I could have used another week for sure!!!  One thing I am always ready for is playing a challenge at Speedy Fox & Friends!  Speedy Fox & Friends challenge this week is to recycle part of a Christmas Card you have received.  Well...this turned out more difficult than I would have thought!  I went searching for past Christmas cards and couldn't find them!!! The ones I could lay my hands on were too special to take apart and I am just not ready to recycle any from this year, yet! Finally I found one made by a fellow stamper from many years ago (long before I had any notions of paper crafting)   My recycling is the green square of DP as well as the green holly leaves.  I hope you have an easier time of recycling than I did!!!  For all the info on this fun challenge and to see more fabulous inspiration just click HERE .

I used Holly Jolly Greetings for my sentiment and holly embellishment.  

Inside of the card: 
"Merry Christmas" sentiment from "Poinsettia Blooms" set

Stamp set used: 
Holly Jolly Greetings
