Which Came First?

I know what you're thinking: "Easter cards are for old ladies and cats."

I beg to differ. I remember getting handmade Easter cards from my great-grandmother every year when I was a young girl -- she was a fantastic artist -- and I have great memories of receiving those cards each year. You don't have to be religious to recognise that Easter can be a day for celebrating Spring and the new life that comes with it -- be it eternal life, or cute little baby chicks.

That's why I have created three different cards for Easter: a couple for the not-so-religious type, and one for the religious type:



Who doesn't remember the classic causality dilemma about the chicken and the egg: "Which came first? The chicken or the egg?" Clearly, that was the inspiration behind this card. I often get the little song stuck in my head, but I can't figure out who sang it -- no, it's not the one that was on Sesame Street...it's much older than that.



The religious Easter card is simple and to the point, yet powerful. If this isn't your cup of tea, that's fine, there's more where the chicken and the egg came from -- which ever you think came first.
