Black Cat Scraps-Recycled Cards Holiday series (card 6)

It is always good to recycle, and it is even better when what you recycle looks so pretty! My grandmother would support me in my internet business if she knew how to work the computer better, however she is super helpful by saving all of the gift wrapping paper and holiday cards that charities send out with asking for donations. She also saves all of the holiday cards she get from friends in family and gives them to me. It has only been recently that I have started to get Christmas and Holiday cards in the mail of my own, so I too get to save some. It often helps to a have a few cards to choose from when making a recycled card. You get a wider opportunity of inspiration when you have more to choose from. I have a stack of at least 100 different card fronts to use, therefore I have a lot of cards I can recycle!!! That is what I plan to use for my holiday cards.
