It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.  It is card season, whether it be client, personal or promotional.  The snow boy and girl above are illustrations for cards that will be going out to my nieces and nephews.  The three dimensional embellishment of the hat strings and pom-poms are made from my grandmother's yarn scraps from decades ago. 

There is no snow here yet, but walking through the neighborhood today I spotted a yard full of wooden cutouts of various cartoon characters.  Each character was painted in holiday attire.  Nestled among them was Sylvester the Cat singing carols.  Think about it, and if that doesn't bring a smile to your face, well then humbug to you. 

An update on my holiday card for 2014 is coming soon.


  1. I love these adorable snowmen, Anne :) And what I REALLY like is that, since their coloring isn't "Christmas," they're for anything "winter" :D

  2. Thank you, Donna Marie. I agree. My holiday card will have similar versatility.
