In 2003, my sister Jane & I were heavily into... altered books & the like, so it was the various accoutrements from that art form that inspired my Christmas (or New Year's) card that year.
Besides being one of my all-time favorite winter birds, the Cardinal has a great song, which is "Cheer! Cheer! Cheer!", so I thought it be fun to "cheer" in the new year with this little guy. Anytime I can combine some bit of trivia with an illustration is a good time for me.
Also a good time for me: YOU having a Merry Christmas!
Do so, wouldya? ;-)
