A holiday greeting!

OK... a little later this year than usual. I have finally put together the outside of our family holiday cards this year. The girls each drew a tree in pencil and I assembled it with the text on this card. I did this by scanning each drawing into the computer. I added a little color to each and fixed any broken lines using "GIMP" on a mac. I miss my photoshop on the pc but that poor computer is still ill. Then I pasted each tree onto a single card and formatted it to fit on an 8.5x11 paper. We did this same card format with ornaments one year and I think I will continue this theme for a few more years (angels, snowmen, snowflakes, ....)

That's fantastic. I wish I'd thought of it myself.
