Christmas Card- first & second renditions

I started my Thanksgiving break today, although it really, technically, officially begins after I finish and submit two projects that are due this weekend. :( Nevertheless, I had a wonderful day today (except when I was thinking about my projects). I spent it cleaning, shopping*, reading, and oh yes, developing my Christmas 2007 card. :)

Here is the first rendition:



Second rendition:



I'm going to try to add some patterned paper and maybe some other embellishments like glitter and ribbon. Also, I want to add a 3-D Christmas box for the finale. :)

*Joann's Fabric and Craft store has a sale on its remnant fabric. 75% off the current price of the fabric!

Wow, I so envy people with artistic talents. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment on my mommy site recently.

Ok, so this might be a crazy request, BUT, any chance you have thoughts of making a paper doll-like illustration for Christmas?

I loved the one from the Small Object last year, and Jack and I had so much fun coloring on them. Your art is just so darn cute, and if you made one we could make more ornaments from it. (I am practically dying to use your cute illustrations for something!)
