Merry and Bright

Let me introduce myself – my name is Barb Housner – and I am a new member of the Digit Team for I Brake for Digis. I am very excited to be a part of the team. Stop by my blog and check out my creations. I will be posting here regularly also.

I have been card making for 6 – 7 years – maybe – I do not know for sure when I started. My friend started me down this road and it has consumed my creativity. I use to sew in a former life and actually worked in a fabric store for over 10 years. I think that sense of color and balance transfers itself to card making.

I am relatively new to using digis and learning something new every day. So come along for the ride. I like the versatility of being able to make a digi any size you need. I am still trying to master that – my images are still pretty big – I get them colored before I see how they will work on a card – I don’t want to waste my coloring so I make a big card. Of course, people deserve special cards and if they are oversized – that is even better. Sometimes I feel that I personally am keeping the US postal service in business.

This card is for a special young woman in my life. She has taught me so much about life. I am the honorary grandmother to her new daughter Londyn. Purple is her favorite color so, of course, when you are a card maker – the fun of it – is that you can personalize each card for the recipient. One of my workers loves orange – if you pop over to my blog – I bet you can figure out which card is hers. Snowmen are pretty easy to color – I like that.

Well enough chatter for today – I must get started on my Sunday chores – Christmas is 3 weeks away and I have not gotten my invites out for Christmas dinner. Those need to go in the mail on Monday – so I probably have more cards to make also.

Everyone have a wonderful Sunday. Hope you find some time to create. Creativity is good for the soul.
