Holiday Cards

Below are the holiday cards I designed this year. As usual I started a bit too late to paint and print just one, so instead I decided to paint ALL originals!!! How hard could that be, right? 4 evenings and 27 cards later, I am all done! (If you count them, there are only 26 - that's because one card has already found its owner.)
Enjoy, and have a wonderful Holiday Season!

Lovely work, you obviously have a very good work ethic to be able to do that any cards in so little time. Did that include coming up with the designs or was that in addition?

I design my own card every year and kinda went to far this year by making it a hand constructed Christmas picturebook. My wife is already talking about topping that next year by hand painting fifity cards. She's talking about one a week. I'm hoping she doesn't have you on her Googlereader.

Thanks, Peter!
I don't know about work ethic... I think I just like to challenge myself with crazy projects on top of work and other things.
The time includes coming up with the designs. I did very quick doodles, did some research and started painting. I worked on all 27 at the same time, just feeling my way through he colour palettes.

Good luck with next year's card challenge to you and your wife!

I am such a Peanuts fan! I enjoy those tree cards! It's a great idea I am seeing more often this year... So generous!
