Wool-tide Greetings

I actually sketched this card back in July, right after I'd built the Charlie Brown Christmas tree for the robin family.  I toyed with making their "tree" the focus of this year's card and that led me to think about everyone waiting out by the mailbox to see if the robins, who had migrated for the winter, had sent them a Christmas card.  Much more plausible.  Obviously ;-).

I didn't go ahead and paint it however, because they don't call me the CRAZY sheep lady for nothing.  If you give me a birthday gift early, I never open it until it's actually my birthday.  Jumping the gun might jinx something.  Painting the card too early might do the same thing!  There are a couple of old guys on there.  Don't get cocky and assume anything.  Much better to wait until the last minute and be stressed out ;-).

Of course, being a glass half empty sort of person I only assumed something bad would happen and I'd have to remove someone from the design.  It never crossed my mind that something good could happen and I'd have to add someone in.  June fit into the card design as easily as she fit into the family.



Merry Christmas!

I had fun guessing who was who (I was mostly right ;) ) So glad you were superstitious- ah- careful- and waited to color everyone in. So glad the Sheep Chicken is there (can you tell, I am just fascinated by your Adventure Chickens?)

So nice. :-) I figured out almost everyone. I was afraid we were to identify the Ts, and was glad to see "the Ts"....... :-) That much, I knew. :-)

Another lovely card. :-)
