It's Christmas!

Yes, it's finally here, and there is actually a little bit of snow coming down, so it's a "white Christmas", as well. Family and friends are due to arrive in about an hour and a half, and Jeannine and I are relaxing at the kitchen table with cups of tea, fruit salad and muffins made with butternut squash and cranberries.

So I thought this might be a good time to share this year's Christmas card -- our second collaboration. I came up with the idea for the design (probably inspired by the various "trees with faces" drawings I've done recently), and Jeannine wrote the poem.

Here's the front of the card...


... and Jeannine's poem inside.


Happy holidays, everybody! -- PL

What a lovely card you and Jeannine have created. The second I saw the front it reminded me of the "Tree faces" I have hanging around my workstation. The poem inside is excellent.
Merry Christmas to you and yours Pete. I hope you have a great day full of joy.

What a cool drawing! Was it hand colored or computer colored?

Thanks for the compliment! It was both, actually -- the sky background was done with Photoshop, while the rest was hand-colored with watercolors. -- PL

Just discovered your blog, and I had to say that I love this card.

Beautiful!
