Recycled Christmas Cards

Been very busy for the past few weeks with work, home, seeing friends and so on.  I was asked by a friend to make half a dozen Christmas cards some with a religious theme.  I really couldn't find a stamp to use even though I have boxes of them.  In the end my friend Anne helped me out by giving me some images cut out of last year's Christmas cards.  Instead of using them as they were I scanned them into the computer, touched them up and cropped them, then printed out a few. 

I used the above three images for 3 cards.  I also used up quite a few "left over" bits of backing paper from my "scrap" box so felt I had done my bit for the recycling cause. 

These are the finished cards

I was really pleased with the cards even though I had not created the image.  It was still good fun matching them up with papers and embellishments.
