New Year News.....FMS369





2019 is starting with lots of news around here! That rooster image from the new SAB set Home to Roost is perfect to announce the arrival of three new members to our Freshly Made Sketches Design Team. You will love the designs of these three very talented ladies - I know I do!  Stop by their blogs to say hello!





But that rooster has more news to crow about!  Miss Emma was very happy to meet Uncle Mike's adorable new pup this week.  He is a 12 week old Alaskan Malamute who has the biggest feet I have ever seen and will probably soon be bigger than Emma!  




But the best news of all is that Uncle Mike and Aunt Ria expect a baby boy in the next two weeks!  Emma is very excited to have a new cousin soon......and me??  Well I am pretty much beside myself awaiting a new grandson.......I will try not to crow too much...... :)  






Amy has a wonderful sketch for us to start the New Year!  Hope you join us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Happy New Year, Linda! Happy news is always fun to crow about and that rooster does a great job! Love the DSP you chose and that sunburst is perfect to show him off!

This card is a perfect way to ring in the new year! I love the sunburst behind this handsome rooster. I didn't realize that the new grandbaby's expected arrival date is so close. How exciting!

Linda... Wowzer... Great News all around. Something to crow about for sure.
I love the card and love the rooster. Not sure WHY I loved that rooster but I just had to have it.... and ..It should be on my doorstep tomorrow... fingers crossed.
Emma looks thrilled with the new puppy... but that puppy won't be small for too long. That's going to one big dog soon.
Most importantly... CONGRATS GRAMMA ... again. How wonderful! Can't wait to track the progress of this big event via your exciting news.

Hugs
