Christmas Cards

So I got back my adorable Christmas card design from African gray...I love it!  While it doesn't quite capture the cuteness that is Miss Bunny B, I understand that really what could?!?

Have you guys ever seen Whitney's work before?  She has a great shop on Etsy and she is SOOOOOO talented!  I have wanted some custom illustrations from her for all of my furry four-legged friends for some time now, and when I saw that she does holiday card illustrations I knew this was the right time!

She sent me the file so that I can print them myself (I elected this option as I have a print shop set-up in my house) and so I can customize the insides for who I send them to...which was a perfect option for me.  So for $30 I got the cutest Christmas card design, plus I can print a large version out and have it framed...a nice piece that I can bring back out each December!

So it started with needing to send her some pics...both pics of the pups faces and their profiles so she could draw them accurately.  So I sent here these:

And then I got this...

Which was adorable...but Bunny's coloring was a little off (she looked gray and not the warm browns that she actually is) and her smile was crooked.  So Whitney made the corrections in a day and I got the final version...which I love!  What do you guys think?


  1. omigosh!! absolutely adorable! I should get one made of my little lady too!

  2. , and I know they come in a bajillion different colors. Were I ever to design a ring for myself, I would totally go for something that is more in the "stone" family than the "gem" family Silver/RHINESTONE CRYSTAL EARRINGS
