A Child Is Born

Filed under: CARTOONS,DRAWINGS,Religious — Tags: , , , , — Colby @ 12:47 am

This is the last Christmas card in the set and is most people’s favorite; probably because they’ve all witnessed the humorous chaos of trying to put on a youth Christmas program. Outside on the top; inside on the bottom.

I hope you have enjoyed this tour of Christmas cards. Regardless of your faiths and beliefs, I wish this Christmas Day brings you joy. And again, thanks to David Hopson and his artistic skills for putting these together.

And Lo, The Star

The structure is the outside of my church. Do you recognize the bells from a previous card? Beside our church is a pathway enveloped by rows of live oak trees. We like to call that “Oak Alley.” I represented that within the silhouette of the sanctuary, then added the nativity scene. David Hopson added the star.

Glory To The Newborn King

Remember the outside, “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”? This is the inside of that card.

Thanks once more to David Hopson.

This is the outside of the card; front on top, back on bottom. I thought the inside and outside of the card both looked nice so I decided to show them separately. I’ll show you the inside of the card with the next post.

Thanks again to David Hopson for putting these together.

Ring The Bells

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Religious — Colby @ 4:03 pm

A member of my church took a few selections of my existing artwork and designs and came up with some really nice Christmas cards. In the next few postings I’ll share them with you. This first one, “Ring The Bells” comes from a design I did inspired by the bell tower above our sanctuary. In this edited version, the left side is on the front of the card, the right side is on the inside.

Thanks to David Hopson and his artistic skills for putting these together.

Girls wearing lighted candles in their hair was scary enough.
