Day Three (and don't forget the giveaway!)

Welcome to the Green House on the Hill.  Today is the third day of my Christmas card sharing.  Today’s card holds a special place in my heart.  I made it back in 1998, when my older girls were just babies.  The artwork featured on the cover of the card was done by my oldest daughter, Isabella.  At 2 ½, she was quite the artist. 
It was a simple card to make.  Isabella drew a picture of Santa and a Christmas tree, which I took to a color photocopy shop to be reproduced … I told you it was an old card!  My feeble attempt to decorate the card was just that!  But I love that I preserved this little bit of artwork on a card.  Today, it would be super simple to recreate this card.  All you need is a creative child (pretty much any child would do, since they are all super creative), a scanner (or a digital camera) to capture the artwork digitally and some photo editing software and voila, you have an adorable card!

I added a credit for the cover art on the inside of the card.

Tomorrow, I will be sharing a more recent card!  So stop back into the Green House on the Hill.  And don’t forget to post a comment on Monday’s post to be entered to win a copy of Scrapbooking Holidays and Celebrations!  I hope to see you tomorrow.


  1. What a wonderful idea Patty! I love the card. I can't wait to see what you come up with for tomorrow.
