Holiday Card 2011 by mleiv Holiday Card 2011 by mleiv
Medium: PhotoShop/SketchBookPro
Size: 4.25X5.5" (300dpi)

This is my winter holiday festivities card. I don't have the time (or creativity!) to make one up every year, but having exhausted all my snarky/nerdy/non-denominational purchasable sources this year, I was in a corner. Thank goodness I had Futurama as inspiration. I've been wanting to paint some Santa-bots for ages, so this was kinda testing the waters there. But 2011 will have Santa-bots. Somewhere. With a large arsenal of holiday cheer missiles. :)

I mailed one out to everyone whose address I know (the difference between 50 cards and 250 cards was $10 this year, so I have a big box of cards sitting here, ha). The rest of you, enjoy the online fun. You can read the inside:

Glad to see you're selling these! When I received this card in the mail, my first thought was that it was the greatest Christmas card that had ever been created. So festive yet so destructive at the same time. I love the broken English: a nice touch.

Yeah, I may have learnt my skills from Disney movies, but I've never been able to do adorable without disturbing at the same time. :P My general report back on this one is that little boys really like it, ha. Next time: fart jokes.

Again, Thanks so much for the card! The boys (Jeremy, the Sweetie & Dan, the Roomie) LOVED it!
I'll have to find someone to help me with the recipe :plotting:...I am not good on experimental cooking. Tends to make those I force to eat it a bit...ah nervous.

Yeah, no great cooking skill here either - that's the S.O.'s hobby. But it was the most delicious food I have ever put in my mouth (if you like butternut squash and maple as much as I do), so I had to share. :)

I have a few adventurous friends when it comes to cooking, and I really want to give it a try now...I'll have to bargain with what I can cook...some death by chocolate devil's food cookies.:plotting:
