Mary and Baby Jesus

Hello all,

The count down to Christmas continues.  I know we say it every year, but where does the time go.  This last weekend was a busy one.  I participated in the Craft show at the Senior Center on Friday.  Then I made cards with the kids at a local store in Corning.  Connor helped with a charity event to help raise money to help hungry children.  We had a great time, but the threat of bad weather kept people at home.  As I type, the TV is whining about the 6-10 inches of snow headed our way. It is a shame Mother Nature couldn't cooperate a little!

I have an unusual card for you today.  It is a new take on scene with Mary and Jesus.  Many have commented that it must have been windy in the Manger.   I agree the hair might be a bit much, but it is SOOOO much fun to color!

Copics used:
If I were to color this again, I might make Jesus's blanket blue.  I went with brown because of the bible verse, but I think blue would help break up all the browns in the photo.
Blue:  B12, B14, B16
Hay: Y21, mix of browns.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Lips: E04, R20
Blanket: E50, E51, E53
Hair: E30, E31, E33, E35
Wood: E43, E44, E47
