Hand Painted Christmas Cards

Such a sweet picture by Sam Pearson. Each year one of my girlfriend's husband paints
a picture to be used as their Christmas card.
This is the picture for this year.
So sweet!
This was last year's Christmas Card.
I love the little holly wreath around the
bird's neck.
Love this birdhouse with two "cuties"
building a nest

This painting is so beautiful.
Cardinals are so colorful.
My mom used to love to feed the cardinals
when she lived in Tucson, AZ.
Nice memories.
Sweet Tweets to you all!

I adore birds..and cardinals are my favorite, cause they remind me of my mom too.

What a special thing to receive every year!

Those cards are amazing, what a talented friend you have. I think I would have to frame them all, even if I just displayed them at Christmas. Gorgeous!!!

Beautiful cards. I, too, love the little bird with the wreath around his neck. I wonder what it would look like if my husband tried to paint something? Cute blog.
