This month I'm a guest designer over at Sparkles Christmas Card Challenges and with the 100F+ temps it has been a little cooling relief :)
Each week the team challenge you to make a Christmas card to add to your stash. They have a challenge you can play along with but it's always optional, as long as you make a Christmas/Holiday/Winter card then you are good to enter!
The challenge for this week is "Recycle". Now this is always a hard challenge for me as I don't tend to recycle items for use in my crafts but I found a piece of trim from a gift box and I think it worked out great.

The Christmas envelope image was a journaling spot in the paper pad and I thought it was the perfect spot for Ollie to sit.
