my christmas card.
oh, how i wasn't looking forward to doing a christmas card this year...
for me, doing the card means that i need to immerse myself once again into that wacky watercolor world that i created for gretchen, hank, and jake to have their holiday fun and, even though it's been 8 months, i didn't think i was going to be able to come up with anything funny.
and i couldn't.
for weeks i agonized over what to do, but it just wasn't happening. i've continued to hear jake's 'voice' in my head these past months, but not anything very funny. i wanted he card to be the light, slightly humorous silliness that it had been in years past, but it just wasn't coming.
my heart heavy, i resigned myself to going with the somber 'silent night' piece i'd started years ago.
then, when it was finished and i'd gotten that out of my system, purged the emotional gravitas, as it were, inspiration struck.
i asked God for some help, for something humorous that i couldn't see--but it was jake's voice that said, "that cat's getting away with murder."
so here's my card for 2010!
hope you like it.
stop back friday--christmas eve!!--for some more scared of santa, some fun holiday pictures, and the awesome sketch that lauren monardo included inside her christmas card that made me and sharon laugh out loud!
and some christmas trivia? should we do some trivia...?
okay--and a 'five for friday!'
smell ya later!
