Holiday Splendor

All year I look forward to my annual October-ish visit from Mary Ann…She’s one of these awesome fiery ladies with a personality that keeps me laughing almost constantly. And every year when she and her friend stop in to work on Mary Ann’s holiday cards, we are tasked with coming up with something “even better than last year’s” (which is no small accomplishment since we’ve been designing her holiday cards since we opened in 2005.) Last year’s card was a beautiful creation from Tag & Co.  but in 2010, we created this whimsical dancing reindeer card. Mary Ann loves bright colors, particularly red, so that was an obvious choice as the top layer, and the tiny dot pattern adds a sweet and simple touch. The most important decision each year with her cards is the sentiment- always unique, heartfelt and sincere, it can’t be something we’ve ever used before. Mary Ann challenges me to keep reinventing her cards, and keeps me giggling well into the New Year.
