Before we get to the Challenge I have 2 new Design Team Members to welcome. Lois Bak and Gail Scott will be joining us starting with this month. I am sure you will enjoy their blogs and their cards. Welcome ladies. 

  This week take a Christmas card you received and use part of it to make your card for our challenge.   Can't wait to see your ideas. Thanks so much for joining us each week. It is so much fun looking at all your Challenge cards.  Lots of talent and inspiring ideas out there.  Here is what our Design Team has come up with. Hope we inspire you. 



                                          Pat  ---Changed out the centered die cut with a glittered outline sticker. Removed the 3 green rhinestones and exchanged them for the 3 holly leaves. Then added a sentiment.

                                             Lois - used ornaments that were on a card

                                            Shirley - added a MFP a HC Santa to a card front

                                              Gail - used part of a card front to make her card front

                                                 Patty - The Santa was taken from another card
                                           Wendy  - added the Friends and ornament along with the Greetings and scalloped border.

When I first saw this challenge I couldn't figure out how I would do it because I only have one MFP stamp set, Garden Art. However, I realized that the gnome looked a lot like Santa if I just colored his outfit red! So I went for it! Love the idea of recycling parts of a card to give it a new life!
