Freshly Made Sketches: Warm My Heart

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Rita.


Awhile back, I made a gift bag and card with a moose. Then later, I made a fox gift bag. It dawned me at that point that if I just made a fox card - I would have a fun gift set for my older son and a fun gift set for my younger son.  I quickly realized I wanted to use this sketch because it had to be just a little quirky for a 15-year old.  Even at 15 sometimes he's still quite young (and sweet!), so I decided to add a cute snowman. 

FMS Warm My Heart

Now I just have to get some Christmas shopping done so I have something to put in their little gift bags!  It's going to be an interesting year for gift giving.  My older son is 19 and is taking a gap year before college. Living on his own, what he really needs are things like gas gift cards or Starbucks cards or new tennis shoes or a month's free rent!  He's not used to "practical" gifts but I'm stumped. My youngest wants a desk.  A desk?  Seriously? What 15-year old wants a desk?  (And how will it fit in this gift bag?!)  

If you are closer to being done with your Christmas shopping than I am - I hope you find time to play along with Freshly Made Sketches.

This is so cute! Warms my heart for sure! And yep the older they get the harder to buy for! I miss the tearing into the toys days! This year I have bought a microwave, pot and pans and boots so far.......boring!

This is darling Kim, love the little fox!

Your snowman and fox combination for your son: marvelously sweet...er, I mean, masculine! He'll love it! Yes, it will be a challenge to fit a desk into that little bag...but a picture of the desk would work, and you can surprise him with the real one elsewhere. Buying for teen boys sounds like a challenge; my nephew's 3, so he's easy...cars, cars and cars!

This is really cute, Kim! I love how you've made a tag work with this sketch. I had to laugh when I read your post because my 16 year-old son only wants two things for Christmas, and one of them is a desk.

This is so cute! The snowman and the fox work so well together! My teenage boys only want cash for Christmas - easy on the shopping front, but a bit boring!

Such an adorable card. I love the background paper and the smiling snowman and his foxy friend are so cute! I love how your younger son wants a desk for Christmas. I've always been a fan of practical gifts too!
