Christmas Cards - I Need Your Help!


Trying to figure out which card to print for Christmas is HARD.

Only one or two cards can be printed each year.
Help me choose a favorite.
I will only keep these up a very short time.
Can you tell me which is your favorite card?
One or two will be chosen to go into my card line this Season.
Which one do you like?  Please leave a message below!     Thank you for your assistance.


1.


2) 2 versions of skaters




A.  Have A Merry Merry Christmas
or
B.  Merry Christmas
c.  Seasons Greetings



3)  the little house 

 Merry Christmas 
inside
Happy New Year



4)  Kids Christmas morning 




5)     Sugar Plum Dreams 






6)     Santa Card
Have a Merry Merry Christmas!

or 

May your days be Merry and Bright

7)    Santa and Apples Deer
  
 6)  Fresh repaint with polar animals, no kids...maybe next years?

My favourite is Sugar Plum dreams, followed closely by the wider version of the children with the stockings - May Your Christmas Be Filled With Joy.

But of course, they are all lovely!

Annelies said...

Oh I love them ALL, but if I had to pick, the second and the fifth are my MOST favorite!!! You have such a gift....many blessings this holiday season. XXX

My Mother and Dad (not blog friendly)voted for the little house with Merry Christmas in the Sky and the Stockings being hung! Thanks Mom and Dad! But, Sugar Plum dreams wasn't up when they voted. : D

Linda said...

I LOVE the Sugar Plum Dreams & the Santa w/ Reindeer/apple. Love your work :)

Annelies said...

Wow....honored that you addressed my email!!! So the sequence DID change, and my favorites are the third ( wide one) of the children with stockings, and my other favorite is kids Christmas morning ( which I think is my VERY favorite). XXXX

This one did't post....Thanks Kathy, good idea on the Nativity.
All of these are so beautiful! Darling pictures. I would love to see you create a card that depicts a Nativity scene, the star over Bethlehem, angels announcing good news to the shepherds, or the Magi visiting.

Hope you are enjoying a glorious autumn!

Blessings,

Kathy

This one didn't post either...Hello Becky!
Just a note to wish you HAPPY HOLIDAYS and tell you how much I enjoyed seeing your new Christmas cards. I especially liked the SUGAR PLUM DREAMS. However, I think that the LITTLE HOUSE would have wider appeal for the general public. They are all great! As usual, your work is so magical and inspiring!

I also wanted to ask you if you ever teach workshops or classes. I know you have your hands full with your business and your home life, so I am assuming you probably don't, but I thought it would not hurt to ask!

I wish you and your family a HAPPY THANKSGIVING and a wonderful holiday season!

J- classes (sounds intimidating : )...someone mentioned creating a video class ...in a prior email... but I am not sure how to do that and make it look professional? I'll need to give this idea some thought.

another one not posting- hmmm? This one said...
"My favorite 3 are

The house in the snow. Beautiful and serene.

Skaters on ice with berries hanging down. Love it.

The Christmas morning celebration with the kids throwing their arms in the air. Expresses the joy and wonder of Christmas that children have and adults tend to forget about. : (

Cowboy Santa dancing with sock monkey. Funny and appeals to the country western crowd too.

I like the snowy border usually, but if the card is “busy” go with plain."

It is very hard to pick but I really really love (5)Sugar Plum Dreams the best and I think the third card from the top (version 1) would be my second choice. They are all very beautiful though...

becky kelly studio said...

Another one - wasn't able to post-
liked the snow scene

Marina Alonso said...

Well, it's a little hard to choose, but I like them in this order: #6, #2 (second version), #5 and #4. Love your art! And, I got my box yesterday! Love it all! Thank you.

Marina Alonso said...

Oops, I wasn't #6, it's the last one, with the winter animals!

Brittany said...

I love #4 Kids on Christmas Morning, #1 May Your Christmas Be Filled With Joy, and #2 the Skaters...they are all so cute!

Martha said...

Wow! What a treat to see all of your beautiful Christmas creations. I love them all of course, but if I have to choose I would say #1 with the decorated border and #5 Sugar Plum Dreams.

I love them all, but I would go with sugar plum dreams! I love all the children sleeping in one big bed :)

becky kelly studio said...

Thank you so much!
Wish I could do all of them.
This has been incredibly helpful. I'm going to review next. (There are more comments on Facebook and more in emails) I wish I could do all of the ones you mentioned, if not this year then maybe next year.

Thank you all so much! I am truly grateful.
Becky
