No luck at all the good will or second hand so will go to TJ Maxx on Monday or burlington and see what Santa can find...a nice pastel blue, pink or a purple will go great with her new stuff!:> HO HO HO! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Love your picture! I know what you mean about kids without coats. We don't teach any more, but we get names of kids from teacher friends...kids who don't have coats. Raf went out and got two for twin boys at Wal-Mart...under $20, but nice and warm, and my friend says they are so proud of those coats.

Even in Texas, it get cold sometimes!

This card is really nice, Maggie. Very old-time, my favorite. Not like white Christmas lights kind of thing. Nice design and feel. No squares on the page, perfect.

Nice card,Maggie. I like the old time feel of the decorations. no new-all-white-light stuff. There are not squares on the page and the words adds artistic class. Perfect.

Maggie- This is absolutely gorgeous! Every image is outstanding. Is this watercolor? The shadows you've added to the poinsettia are so subtle and nice.

I love this, the colors the page setup, and your drawing is wonderful.

I *love* your style of doing multiple drawings to maximize page, drawing, fun, interest and general visual yumminess! The last three pages like this are WICKED! Cheers! Mary Ellen
