Six Sheep A-Skating

For the last several years Saint Tim and I have been designing Equinox Farm Christmas cards. The first year we just thought it would be a fun way to introduce some new animals on the farm and nothing more. I painted the scene and we put a diagram with their names on the back.

There were originally seven characters - listed four on one side and three on the other. For anyone who knows me, knows that just. wouldn't. work. So, back to the drawing board and that's how "the neighbor kid" was added (the inside scoop).

He was a huge hit and right away folks were saying they couldn't wait to see what he was going to be doing in the next design. Next design? Uh oh ;-). Seriously, we've had a lot of fun with these cards and boy, it sure doesn't seem like five years.

Happy Holidays everyone. We wish you peace and joy for the season and upcoming year.

Great card! So clever---and I can see that you might need a bigger card next year, if the population continues to grow!
