A Christmas Card

Front of card

Since I was a child I have loved the custom of sending Christmas cards.

This year it seemed especially important to extend this tradition, to reach out to say hello to a few family and friends and wish them “Peace and Good Health In The Coming Year.”

Each holiday season I think I should design and send out cards featuring something from my garden, but many Christmases have come and gone without that happening—until this year, 2020.

I used a watercolor effect on a photo from an “In A Vase On Monday” arrangement for the cover. Inside the card opposite the message, I used the actual image.


For the back I chose a gladiolus, lilies and a dahlia in holiday colors.


I am sharing the card today to send you and yours traditional wishes for the season.

Peace and Good Health In The Coming Year
