Speedy Fox & Friends Recycled Christmas Card Ch#141

Good Morning Card Crafters! I am excited to announce that I joined the Design Team at  Speedy Fox and Friends.  I am blessed to be part of the team and to have the opportunity to work with Pat Garvin, blog team coordinator and the other DT members. This is my first posting for the Speedy Fox and Friends Challenges. 

This was a fun card to create. The glittery tree with bird images was fussy cut from a Christmas card before I glued it to the card base. I like the results of my new birthday card. What do you think?

Be sure to drop over to Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge this week and join the fun! Grab a Christmas card you received and see what new creation you can make.

You could be the winner of a free stamp set from Marks Finest Papers - a Heinrich Co.
Thanks for stopping by and come back again. Enjoy your day! ~ Gail ~
