December Papertrey Blog Hop: Holiday Leftovers Challenge



This month, the challenge at PTI's blog hop is "Leftovers".  Use some of the leftovers from holiday preparations or things you have received.  I love this challenge--what a 'green' idea--reuse and recycle.  I immediately thought of the sweet tag that was on the gift I received from Marybeth when we got together earlier in the month.  

Here is what I received from Marybeth that day:



It only took a few minutes to turn that tag into this card:

In keeping with the theme of recycling and reusing, I recycled this card layout, which was originally cased from this card by Elena.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas or just a happy Sunday with family and friends.  Enjoy the rest of the hop.

Supplies Used (PTI):
Tag:  Marybeth
Stamps:  Christmas Label, Hero Arts Envelope Pattern
Paper:  Holiday Flourishes & Swirls, Ripe Avocado, Fine Linen
Other:  Edgers Die


Thanks for Visiting
