Above is my submission for this week's I.F. theme of "Explore." As per my last I.F. submission, I talked about needing to return to the grindstone for making Christmas cards. And, well, here we are!
I wanted to make some Christmas cards that didn't entirely use the traditional colors of red and green, and this deep yellow-orange has been making an appearance in quite a few new cards. There is still a lot of red in the various cards I've done, but some have been more pink and green instead-- the above card a case in point.
I thought this one fit well for the "explore" theme, as this girl is going on an adventure and exploring with her magical (and enormous) Christmas kitty, as they fly through a holly, ornament, and heart filled atmosphere. Apparently, the kitty's baby sibling didn't want to mix any of the exploring fun, so he secretly attached a leash to Kit-Zilla's tail! Hopefully they'll all find fun things while they explore.
Anyway, must get back to freelance work and card-making, so, onward. Oh, and have to get to bed for tomorrow's event! Details in the links below.
