Freebies...

I'd be the world's biggest hypocrite if I got all "Jesu-fied" this time of year, considering I don't sing his praises January through November. Still, I play the Christmas ball game. As the bible-thumpers like to say, sometimes you've got to break bread.

I've been drawing my own Christmas cards cards for about twelve or so years now. Some have been borderline sacriligious, others just thought provoking. Here's the 2005 version. If you like it, feel free to pull out some card-stock and print it out. Send it to anyone who might appreciate it.



Here's an alternate for the single and childless or for the devout with no sense of humor:



If you'd like a high-resolution copy, I'd be happy to e-mail you one if you request it.
Thanks to Geoff, via Michele's blog for your input.

These are great (and I guess I'm pretty Jesus-fied as my husband is clergy). How generous of you to let people print 'em for free.

forgot to add, I'm visiting via Michele

It's what you DO do and not what you DON'T do. I refuse to believe that we all have to become mindless religious zealots in order to be considered good people. Piety takes many forms.

Juggling Mother said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. Shame you felt the need to lie completely!

i will certainly not be returning & have asked michele that she also disallows you

Prego said...

Aginoth, I miss you already, old gal.

(Apparently satire is a concept the Brits haven't discovered yet.)

You draw well. Like the manger one. Couldn't imagine who I know who would share my sense of humor but I got a kick out of it.

Hello, Michele sent me! :)

I totally got the joke over at the other place. :)

Hi Michele sent me.

Curious cat that I am I went to see the Aginoth fuss first.

Hm, Christmas cards. They look nice. I tend to be more into climbing the tree myself but as the chaqu'un son gout.

YellowRose said...

Well, for some reason I can't see your artwork. :(

But I'm here via Michele's!

Suburban Turmoil said...

These are wonderful! But if Jesus was perfect, surely he didn't leave poopie diapers for his parents to clean up... ;)

Plain Jane said...

I just love it! Santa in the hizouze! *grin*

Hi, from Michele's!

ribbiticus said...

you are one pretty talented artist. i don't think the manger joke was anywhere near sacrilegious.

michele sent me your way today.

Kat said...

Hilarious! I love both cards. And I love that you used the phrase "bible-thumpers." It's one of my favorites.

kimbofo said...

These pictures are absolutely brilliant. You should be working for a card company!!

Michele sent me to visit, Prego.

While it's very kind of you to offer those Christmas cards, I'll have to respectfully decline. I'm afraid some people--not me, mind you--will find them lacking in holiday spirit. LOL Good try, tho.

Carmi said...

Hey Prego. I love these cards. Great artistry and humor....do you do this professionally as well? If not, you should.

Back from Michele's.

Chas Ravndal said...

Sorry that i deleted that previous comment of mine. Made a wrong one. Well I don't really care between Jesus or the Santa thing.. All I want is just to party on Christmas Day

Zephra said...

Hello, Michele sent me!

Marie said...

You're quite a talented artist! Nice drawing.

Michele sent me...

The Gnat's Trumpet said...

These are really good. And I think we should all just stick to the commercial/fun aspects of this time of year and don't let the mystical-spiritual stuff get in the way of the good spirits and partying, everyone would be happier.

Michele sent me.

The Gnat's Trumpet said...

Or actually, Michele sent you to me and I'm here having a look.

And glad I did.

AverageMom said...

Hee! You made me snort pop out my nose! I would dearly love to send one of those to my Bible thumping parents, but I feel the need to try to be nice at Christmas. Sigh...

Last Girl On Earth said...

Hey Prego. You are quite the talent! Love your cards. Thanks for the linkage. I'll do the same. Will be back for an extended visit when I'm back home on my DSL! Come by today for Snippet Monday! Have a great week.

Very nice. I like your drawing style. That aginoth lady is still complaining I see.
