I’ve added some Christmas cards to my Etsy shop, featuring a Nordic Christmas elf with her pet plant.

This illustration was inspired by a recent trip to Canada where I first tasted eggnog (with rum & cinnamon, yum), and sat in the back garden (sorry, “yard”) surrounded by snow, with a bonfire to keep warm. I created this image for a purpose – Christmas cards for myself & family to send out to friends/family, some of which live in Finland – not a dissimilar scene from the one depicted.
I have made this design available in my Society6 shop incase others would like to share with their friends too.
I also have a version with a sausage instead of a marshmallow that is available upon request – my mother said Finnish people don’t eat marshmallows WHICH I FIND HARD TO BELIEVE!
This image is available on a variety of formats from tote bags, to cushions, to clocks, to baby clothing.
There are a couple of things missing from the picture that were present at the original scene. A sweet Mexican dog called Rita chasing a moustache-ball, and two beardy dudes listening to The Darkness. Have I missed out the best bits?
