Okay...so most of you know that I'm a little...let's say ... off.  Julie and I were trying to come up with a festive holiday themed card featuring the pups....I got a little carried away.


Hold on now...this is a weird ride:


The rejected card images:


We're fans of Charlie Brown"



We also like Rudoph:



Which gave me an idea:



Julie's favorite Christmas movie is the original Miracle on 34th:



Because the dogs are in fact related....& step sisters:






This almost made the cut:



This too:



Not sure what this is:



My sister is a fan of Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney & of course, Elvis:





she's also a fan of Lori Grenier from Shark Tank:



I'm a guitar player and there's a rule that you must worship Jimi Hendrix at least once per year:



My nieces like the Kardashians:



Everybody likes the wizard of Oz:



this one's fun:



so's this:



& of course:






but of course don't forget:



and last but not least:



Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will not themselves be realized.

All so very fun, but I like this one:

Brilliant! Repeat after me "I am not off, I am eccentric".  "Off" is for depressed people, intestinal destress and expired milk.


I like the ones with the old Christmas movie Characters. Anything Kinkade-esque has been trumped for all time by this: http://alienartisan....ery/?rnrd=88000

I like eccentric people...they are always more interesting. ;)

I like your card ideas China, all very fun.  -_-  I'm with Allison as far as favorites.  :rolleyes:

I like the wars on Kinkade....it is an improvement on his work....  :lol:

Went to a Hendrix concert in Portland, OR back in the day...


Saw him play but didn't see him sing..... The placement of the speaker tower.... 


When he stepped up to sing, he disappeared behind the speakers.  He'd step back to play and I had my binoculars focused and could see, hear and feel.....


Loved the Hendrix Holiday card..... among others....


Happy Holidays and a Sublime Solstice

For Now,
