I was inspired this year to create a new French Bulldog Christmas card. I wanted it to reflect the urgent need for love in today's world amidst so much conflict and pain. I also wanted to do something different artistically from previous cards. This is the result, with two variations -- one with colored lights, more Christmas-y, and one with white lights for any holiday or as a blank note card.

You can check out these cards and many others for both the holidays and everyday in my Etsy shop, JBalsamFrenchieArt.
