This just in. . .

I was featured in the Columbus Dispatch today along with several other artists in the area that make and send their own Christmas cards. Emily, Eva, and I all worked at the same place (at different times). I am a big fan of both of these talented ladies. Check out the article here (though most of the cards aren't online). This is the card I submitted.

The photo isn't great because I didn't stage it like I usually do. The Dispatch wanted it to be a simple head-on shot and it's too late to rephotograph right now. The stamps are all Papertrey. I stamped using Burnt Umber Palette ink and then colored with Prismacolor pencils. I'm happy with the card, but it really didn't translate in the newspaper as well as I was hoping. It's nothing like a magazine!

Wow, featured in a newspaper. I love this set and LOVE what you did with it. The colors are terrific -- so different for holidays.
