Christmas Card Final

I ended up going with a simple 4"x8" card in an envelope and then did some ecrue note cards for my clients and artist friends.
I would like to spend more time with this but need to get it printed. I do feel a sense of accomplishment designing our cards for three years running. It's getting a teeny bit easier each time. I did have to print this out fairly small so I could paint it quickly. I plan on printing out a larger one to paint after the holidays. I'm starting to like watercolor more and more. Doesn't frighten me as much as it used to. A little progress, perhaps?

I'm always a little jealous of people who can draw and paint; sadly it's not a skill I've ever possessed. Your card is absolutely beautiful - how lovely for people to receive a card that's unique to you :-)

Kim,

I absolutely love your Christmas card! It's just beautiful! You did a great job with the watercolor. I find watercolor to be one of the hardest mediums to use...even Jason thinks so.

Have a wonderful Christmas! Jen
