Snowflakes and Chicken Pox


One year in the very early 1950’s Harvey and I got chicken pox and our family couldn’t go to Maniwaki to our Grandparents for Christmas. This happened at the very last minute, so no tree no holiday food laid in.
Mommy gave us paper bags and new crayons to color and draw pictures with. We thought we had it made in the shade. We were itchy and fevered but we made those paper bags sing.

 
I would like to enter this CAS Vintage Christmas card into these challenges:

Simon Says Stamps…………Snowflakes
