||Hattie Lace spent several years using her four sons'
artwork to make their annual family Christmas card. Once the boys grew
older and less interested in participating, she decided to try creating
the designs herself. Hattie says, "I sat down and drew an angel with
knobby knees and big feet. She just seemed to appear before me."
This card caused such a positive reaction among many friends that eventually
Hattie had it printed, and her little greeting card company was begun!
Fortunately, Hattie's delightful illustrations are available for stampers
to enjoy, as well.
