Haven't I seen that somewhere before?

I made lots of cards today - all sorts - birthday, sympathy, get well etc etc ... and some more Christmas cards, ready for the church mini market tomorrow. I got to the stage this afternoon where I just wanted to put a few more together and had one or two bits and pieces that were suitable to be used - don't often do this, but decided to do a bit of recycling, as called for on Saturday's Workout 77: 'recycle it'.

The theme this week on Die Cuts R us is 'an earth friendly challenge' - well, I'm not sure whether I've interpreted this in the way that was envisaged, but to my mind recycling is very 'earth friendly', so I'm linking for that.

The pictures used on these cards were all recycled - the rest of the materials used weren't.

The 'music' paper is English Paper Company, the paper on the 3rd card is Dovecraft, the fourth card background greetings is vellum (I ran it through my xyron so it stuck perfectly on the embossed card blank).

Challenge 9 on Stampin' sisters for Christ is based on Luke 2:11: 'Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.' 'The challenge is to make a card or project featuring the nativity or other religious theme about Christ's birth.' - most of these cards fit the bill for that.

The third card is good for challenge 19: 'winter wonderland' this week on Die Cut Dreams.
