How to make a successful one-color holiday card.

Here's a very creative holiday card by Robyn Short of "Speak Life Greetings".  What a great concept.  She honors the tradition of calligraphy with an angel design and also does this by using one color.  That is very difficult to do. I could easily see this card in red, green or blue versions or by using the same calligraphy concept for other holidays like Valentine's or St. Patrick's.

Mechanics Are Artists Too.

You might wonder why you haven't seen a post on this blog for the last 11 days -- well, I've been in Indiana with family.

One thing I learned from being there is that mechanics are artists too.

My uncle Tom Allis built this specialty truck that tows semi-trailers (when they break down). He took an old Walmart truck and cut it in half and added a towing attachment.  I call that creative! 

Notice the mix of red and green colors in these pictures.  Using images like this can be a great way to personalize a holiday card. You can print the picture and add your own text, or you could design a card with an open blank space where someone else can add their own photo.
