My Project Unveiled For All To See. Yikes!

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…………….

Front of card

Ta da!

Here are the innards skinnards. Now you can imagine how weird they would have looked with duplicated drawings. That was a close one!

Inside of Christmas Card

I like to call my illustrations, family updates. Okay. So I’m bragging a little.

Kids side

Four people almost received cards with Danny and I on both sides. Dang HCDS! Hallmark-Channel-Distraction-Syndrome.

Parent's rule 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!

Check out their blogs-

Jennifer Jensen

The Guat from The Wish Factor

Austin Hodgens from The Return of the Modern Philosopher

Thanks to all who entered. You really made my week.

Merry, Merry!

There are more holiday shenanigans to come. Watch your inbox!

    1. Thanks Maria! Maybe some year I can send everyone who commented a card! 🙂
      Danny and I live by that expression! I reeeeeally need to start playing hard at some point.
      Merry Christmas to you and your family! I bet you’re excited to have everyone back home!


    1. Thanks so much JB!!! I burn the candle at both ends for a week! I’m still in the NaNoWriMo energy hyperdrive. I just keep going! I’m sure I’ll crash big time in January. 🙂
      Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    1. Thanks so much, Robin!
      I like to keep busy and my annual card and decorating takes a ton of time. Every year I question if it’s worth it and so far, I’ve answered, “Yes.” 🙂
