Are you like me? I can't seem to toss those beautiful holiday cards I receive. They're starting to really pile up, so let's do something constructive with them!

Here's my idea: Take two or more old holiday greeting cards and use them to create your own original card. You can collage, add drawings, sayings, ephemera, stamping... you name it! Use any of the Winter holidays you want. Please don't rate down if your partner chooses a different holiday than one you celebrate. This can be either a PC or a notecard. Be sure any elements are fastened securely if you are mailing as a PC. You may use an envelope if you fear elements will fall off in transit.

Whatever else you do, you must use elements from at least two different cards. You might use one as the base card and remove or add to it with other cards.

This is Sender's choice, so you can start work on your creation as soon as you sign up. Include a nice note to your partner. You might describe your process in creating the card, or whatever else you want to mention.

Have fun reusing, recyling, and recreating!

International, since this shouldn't take much postage. Have fun!

Changed the send date to a Monday, makes more sense, I think. If you drop it in your mailbox and the carrier gets there late, on a Saturday, it won't go out until Monday. Anyway, you have more time to send!

II've been dealing with back issues and doctor appointments. Extended the deadline for me and one other swapper. I hope that helps us both get them sent on time! I don't want to rush this!
