Another recycled Christmas card.....

OK, being serious now.. Thought I would make all my cards for this year using recycled cards from previous years, and more or less similar takes on the same basic design elements, to save time.
The image and the sentiment are from a bag of Christmas cards my sister passed on to me a few days ago, and the holly leaves are punched from some old sheet music that Lean sent me as part of a blog candy prize.

Right.. back to work tomorrow, and I will try and catch up with you all over the next week or so. I owe so many of you a visit! Thank you for all your kind messages in the past few days.

  5. Hi Chris, Sorry I've not commented while you've been so poorly. I confess to not having visited the blogs I follow for several days. I am glad to find you're feeling much better though.

    You must be as you've made 3 lovely cards while I've not been around.

  6. Fabulous idea - I must remember this one! I've just sat and cut all my 2009 cards into nifty gift tags for next year. For next year's wrappings I've decided to use brown paper and raffia so a colourful tag will be needed lOL!
