Christmastime is here...

Mary P. Traverse

I've started thinking about my Christmas cards... probably too late, I'm sure. Anyway, I'm playing with a few different options. This is the more graphic solution, probably with a simple type-treatment. I drew all the ornaments in Adobe Illustrator. The style is obviously retro-inspired.

I'm also working on an idea that will include the lyrics to "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", a carol that's brought tears to my eyes every year since I moved away from home. Sigh. Sometimes it's hard to be a girl.
