Recycle Bin Index Card Collages

I am continuing to challenge myself to create all of my index cards for Tammy's Index-Card-a-Day (ICAD) project using ONLY materials from the recycle bin--junk mail, discarded magazines, and lots and lots of business envelopes.  (For an introduction to my "take" on the project, you can check out my first post here.)
ICAD 2014 #6 Thirst For Life
I'm especially enjoying the cards with images tucked behind security envelope windows, though they are certainly the toughest to photograph!
ICAD 2014 #8 Awakening
ICAD 2014 #9 Next Step
Some are very simple, with maybe a security envelope liner pattern, an image, and a phrase.
ICAD 2014 #7 Ludwig
This is one of the simplest ever, but it makes me laugh every time I look at it:
ICAD 2014 #14 Hello Kitty!
From a couple of the cards, you can tell that I'm getting into the spirit of summertime:
ICAD 2014 #10 Paradise Excursion
ICAD 2014 #13 Jimmy Buffett
 And to round-out the ICAD collection as it currently stands, here are two more:
ICAD 2014 #11 By The Numbers
ICAD 2014 #12 Love Your Love

Love the cards you've done so far. Great idea to recycle.

More super cards :-)! I hold you entirely to blame for my current obsession with sticking animal heads on human bodies (and now, vice versa!)

Great cards! I've been all over the place with mine. I'm definitely going to use more security windows though!

Very fun! I love re-purposing and using stuff that others would just toss away. And yes -- the Hello Kitty is a riot!

Hi Andria....I love your ICADs...recycle or not...they are very creative! And the animal head ones a few posts back are wonderful! Looks like your children's art group is having fun! Sorry, I haven't been around sooner...I'm trying to catch up.
