Holiday Hugs

the Jingle Belles prompt this time is to make cards for people who don’t celebrate Christmas. as a bereaved parent, i know that people who have experienced a loss may not agree that ‘it’s the most wonderful time of the year.’


in 2008, a couple of weeks before christmas and my son’s birthday, he was diagnosed with brain cancer and passed away in june 2009. since then, we’ve changed how we observe the season. paradoxically, i enjoy making christmas cards year round; i just don’t look forward to the actual holiday.

i’m more sensitive to how people might feel about certain sentiments so i think sending holiday hugs will be welcomed.

i watercoloured this cute daricies snowgirl with twinkling H2Os; isn’t she cute? i made this for a family member who loves silly snowmen as much as i do.

i’m also playing along with:
kathy’s 30 day colouring challenge
simon says wednesday – clean and simple christmas
one crazy stamper – Christmas/Halloween/Fall (i submitted a halloween card already)

thanks for popping by.

  1. I adore your card, Linda! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  2. So sorry for your loss … and what a thoughtful sentiment for those who struggle with holidays … so very glad you joined our Hanukkah Song at Jingle Belles.

  3. I am ever so sorry for your loss, and I can relate (in a way).

    I absolutely LOVE your card and the sentiment is perfect. I think I will have to borrow that one (wonder if I can think of a good translation to Swedish…? :))
    The snowman is adorable and your colouring is fantastic. Gonna have to explore your blog further!

Thanks so much for commenting!
