EDM Challenge 97 - Christmas Gift

I've been looking at these teapots for some time. My dh knew I wanted one, so he gave it to me for Christmas. That's why it's special. I can sure tell I have not done any drawing for a couple weeks. I tried this with ink pen and the proportions were so off! Even this one is a bit wonky but it is what it is. Life has been hectic the past couple weeks. I did my annual cookie baking with the grands. They love to color the royal icing and paint the cookies. Very messy but lots of fun. I'm grateful that all the family was able to be together. We had a wonderful Christmas. I have already put away all my Christmas decorations. I feel so good! Yeah!! I did it because we're having some work done on the house and wanted all the extraneous stuff out of the way.

For a Friend

I was inspired by SARK's work. I'm always attracted to vivid colors, but in addition, I love her whimsy and casual attitude toward her art. She has a great gift for writing as well. If we all lived by her principles, we would nap a lot and not worry about anything. I own several of her books and a set of her inspirational cards. If you have not seen her work click on the link in my sidebar.

Christmas Card Challenge

This is my Christmas card - I make my cards every year. This year I decided on something very simple because it becomes such a production-type project with so many to make. The dots are red glitter glue with platinum glitter glue for the star. I used a harlequin stamp on the green background paper. My wish for all is a peaceful, abundant holiday and lots of wonderful art for the group!!!
