2006-Published card art:
over 10,000 cards were sold!
My hand carved art is featured on the front of Boundless Playgrounds' 2006 HOLIDAY CARD!
My sister Kathy asked me if I could donate artwork for this worthy cause. I jumped at the chance! Boundless Playgrounds envisioned a card that would celebrate differences, and be appropriate for everyone's winter Holiday. I hand carved snowflake stamps, used direct-to-paper techniques with inks on and came up with this design for Boundless Playgrounds.
Note! As of December 18th, 2006: Boundless Playgrounds sold over 10,700 cards of this design to raise funds for their organization. In January 2007, the final accounting showed the 2006 Holiday Card program had brought in over $12,500.00! This was the largest amount of cards ever sold during the history of this fundraiser! : ) hooray!
