CARDS, Christmas Cards

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas…

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

 Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

 The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

 In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

 The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

 While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;

excerpt of poem by  Clement Clarke Moore, or possibly, as the claim has also been made, Henry Livingston, Jr.

The Challenges that helped me make this  card:

I have some NEW IMAGES available !  I am so excited about these as I was so in the Christmas spirit when I drew them!   I really hope you like them too.

The first is my new image “All snug in their Beds”  that I’ve used in my card above.  I read the poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas (’twas the night before christmas) to my boys every Christmas Eve.  It’s a  tradition.  I just love it and always have; it’s evokes such a magical feeling in me!   So here are our boys all snug in their bed…
