Freshly Made Sketches: Eggs Come From Where??

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


We are in the middle of the Holy Week of Easter, although I have to admit to being a bit amused that Easter Sunday is also April Fool's Day!!  We are a Christian family and we worship, mourn and rejoice throughout the week. However, when it comes to cards for my sons - 18 and 22 - I tend to go a bit snarky.  This card is exactly the type of humor that works.

FMS Eggs

LIFE UPDATE: For the first time in 27 years, we are moving and I am beyond thrilled!  The new house is just a few miles away but it's exactly where we want to spend our empty-nester years.  We are currently on 5 acres with a view of the Colorado Rockies and that will be hard to give up. I'd say we are downsizing but it's actually a bigger house (although that's not saying much because currently we have "big land, little house"!)  It's a ranch style with a full basement - recently renovated top to bottom and is more than I ever dreamed that I'd have.  It's two blocks from a major bike trail through gorgeous open space that's world famous for bird-watching.  It's less than a mile from groceries and coffee.  And the biggest news - - I have a craft room instead of being tucked into a corner of the family room!!  It all happened quickly so now I only have a month to clean and upgrade our current house that's full of 27 years of life and has perhaps been slightly neglected.  The move date is May 1. My blog won't go dark during that time - I'll have to keep making cards just to stay sane and grounded during this overwhelming month.  I'll also have the joy of reading your blogs as a break from the insanity!  LOVE this hobby (and might LOVE it a bit more in my brand new craft room!)

I hope to see you playing along with our sketch this week - and have a HAPPY AND JOYFUL EASTER!!  He IS Risen!!

  1. WOW! You have a lot going for now; but it will be worth it, especially with a whole room dedicated to stamping. I hope you'll post some pictures once you get settled. Meanwhile, this card is adorable. I never could get what eggs have to do with bunnies. I think it may be a plot "hatched" by candy companies to sell more chocolate...

  10. Congratulations on the new house, Kim; it sounds fabulous! A new adventure on the horizon. Craft room: bonus! I soooo love our new house...bright, spacious and yes, my craft room is my haven. Still plenty to be done (basement/yard), but all in due course.
    Your Easter card: oh my stars! Only one response: LOVE!
