That Says Christmas

I am a little late posting this, but I found out a while back that I was one of 19 winners for Hallmark's That Says Christmas Contest. We were to create a card drawing inspiration from one of these words: wish, fruitcake, joy, ho ho ho, or peace. I was inspired by joy. I loved the idea of a happy penguin, who was spreading joy to his friends.

If you would like to purchase my card you can go to http://bit.ly/d0RY8V and by it online.

I am excited that this is the third contest I have won through Hallmark. If you would like to check out my other cards, here are the links:

yourHoliday - http://bit.ly/cKdXcX

The yourHoliday contest was a career changing moment for me. In January of 2008 I had given myself one year to make something happen with my illustrations or I was going to have to move on to something else. I entered this contest in July and found out a few weeks later I was a winner. After that everything snowballed to where I am now. I can't believe how far I've come since that day. I know I still have a long way to go to where I want to be, but I'm glad I never gave up.

Illustration Friday - Early

The families woke up early to go camping. This is an illustration I worked on for Gospel Light's Summer 2010 Preschool Activity Pages.

Hidden Picture Puzzle

I can finally post my illustrations from the Spring Activity Pages I created for Gospel Light. This was a hidden picture puzzle I illustrated for preschoolers (ages 2 & 3). I had a lot of fun working on it. I tested it out on my own 3 year old first to see how many of the hidden food objects she could fine.

Hallmark's Birthday Your Way

I just found out I am a finalist in Hallmark's Birthday Your Way contest. The winning cards won't be revealed until March, so I will have to hold off on posting my design until then. As this is the second Hallmark contest I am a finalist in, I will also be featured under the Repeat Card Stars. What great news to come home to after a long drive home from Florida.

New Blog Header

Here is a blog header I recently finished. It is for a fantastic family blog called 2 Wired 2 Tired. I had a great time working on this illustration. However, I did find it a challenge to make the mother look frazzled and tired. Here is the link if you want to check it out http://www.2wired2tired.com. It has great information for mom's and funny stories too. Not to mention the occasional product reviews and giveaways.
