Birthday cards

My niece turns three tomorrow. Every year I make her a hand painted birthday card of an endangered species. I can't show you the one I'm working on right now, but here is a peek at the last two years...

This was her first birthday card. The image on the front is the Karner Blue butterfly. I was working on this card in a hotel room during a weekend getaway. Dan had gone off to get take out while I finished it up. I love painting when it's raining outside.

The Black-footed ferret was the chosen critter for the 2nd birthday. The paint is just about dry on the current birthday card, so back to work!
