Some texture, some trees, and saving some too...

Happy Friday folks!  Here we are at the end of another work week....whew, we made it!  Two days of freedom from the daily grind, and hopefully some time spent relaxing (aka, crafting!).  I would like to share 3 cards I made last evening with you today:
In keeping with tradition, the ladies at Jingle Belles are asking us to reuse and recycle for the next couple of weeks, in celebration of Earth Day on April 22.  All 3 of these cards were made using bought Christmas cards that were sent to our family last season.  Also, the ladies at Holly Jolly are looking for trees on our projects, so I made sure I looked for cards containing said items.  Lastly, Hazel is still asking for some texture, for the next hour or so anyway!  The middle card especially fits the bill here.  Once I had all the images cut down to what I wanted, the rest of the cards just seemed to flow together!  LOVE IT when that happens, which isn't!
Anyway, here are the links for the challenges I'm entering:
CHNC:  Texture
Holly Jolly:  Trees
Sparkles Christmas challenge:  Use Kraft card (third card base is kraft)
Papertake Weekly:  Words, words, words
Creative Card Crew:  Add a sentiment
12 Months of Christmas:  Anything goes
Thanks for stopping by, and take care!  :)
