Old, new and recycled

This card uses the sketch for Polka Doodles 51, which also states that there must be an image coloured:
The PB caroling hedgehogs image was coloured with Promarkers, so I'm linking for I love promarkers 47 where the theme is 'recycled' - the red glittered card is recycled from a Christmas cracker.


It's another card for my own challenge 1: anything goes as long as it's a Christmas card, on my new Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog - if you haven't visited yet, I'd love to see you there - perhaps you'd like to join me and link up a Christmas card - you know it makes sense to start them early. If you've made new Christmas cards for other challenges, then perhaps you'd like to also link them to mine.

Another new Christmas card challenge blog has started this week called Jingle Belles and their first challenge is asking for us to use something old and something new. The papers I've used - Bo Bunny'tis the season carols' , SEI Christmas mint and Creative imaginations studio basics 101 - are all old (I really should have used them well before now) and the PB stamp is new - it was one of my Christmas presents and I've been itching to use it. This is good for Drunken stampers 48: new - use something new, Stamp n doodle: new, Order of the opus gluei 84: show us what's new, Paper sundaes 50: something new and Paper issues: new.

This is also for ABC Christmas: A for anything Christmas goes and also Christmas cards all year round: anything goes.
