I’ve sent out all of my greeting cards, so it’s time to unveil my project. I’m so nervous. I hope you like it.
Every year an idea comes to mind which becomes a sketch and then transforms into some kind of 3-D popup creation. I know what you’re thinking. Most people don’t even take the time to buy and send ready-made greeting cards. I keep telling myself, “This year I will simplify.” HA! I don’t know the meaning of the word, “simplify.” Two things about me never change: I was born sunny-side up and I love challenges. “Bring it on” should be my middle name, but it’s not. It’s Mary which is pretty dull in comparison. Don’t tell mom. Her first name is Mary.
The front is very similar to last year’s. Take your complaints to Yelp.
So here it is. Drum roll please…………….
Here are the innards skinnards. Now you can imagine how weird they would have looked with duplicated drawings. That was a close one!
I like to call my illustrations, family updates. Okay. So I’m bragging a little.
Four people almost received cards with Danny and I on both sides. Dang HCDS! Hallmark-Channel-Distraction-Syndrome.
All done! Whew. No, really. Next year I’ll simplify. Oh sure! Those fraternal twins who live inside my head are at it again…
The winners of the cards!
They are all legit. I was going to send out four, but I picked Austin and The Guat at the same time. BONUS!
