EDM Challenge 94??Just in the nick of time I got my


Christmas card done...I was in the flow...and i seem to be stuck doing grids...but they do make good Christmas cards dont they??? Lots of blocks to represent the symbols of Christmas...might have to do a religious one next....or one with the dogs and cats...of course wearing Santa Hats:>

I borrowed a trick of my grandmothers...I screwed up in one block so I replaced it ...glued another piece of paper over it...now it looks great:> sometime i will have to post the picture that she did this to...I defy you to find the place that she did it...I cant and i have the pastel...hmmm maybe with a magnifying glass???

Pigma Pen and watercolor...Winsor Newton and Daniel Smith....fun splattering...something else I seem to be doing alot lately...what a mess that makes...well off to bed...did not know it was this late...Merry Christmas!!!

The grid was a nice idea - and the drawings have a Victorian quality to them. Nice work!

It is beautiful!! I love how you designed the layout--looks so festive with the red ribbon around everything. Love those grids :) The little art inside the grids is just perfect--reminds me of your quilts.

I would never have thought to do a grid for a Christmas card, but it's a great idea. There are so many symbols. I like them both but the top one with religious icons are particularly nice. Good to do both, though, so you can be politically correct!
