Thinking About You During Christmas




This card came together because a great sketch was still in my head...

As for my non-traditional colors...


Someone recently told my daughter that she didn't like Christmas...

 I get it.


It can be painful for those that lost a significant other~

or a family member is deployed...


This is a subtle way to let them know they are thought of during Christmas without being all up in their face about the holiday.


Plus, it can stay displayed throughout the whole season~
