Miss You - Free Sentiment Digi

Hello! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving. I count all my crafty online friends and fellow OWH card makers among the many things I am thankful for.

Well... my intention of trying to get back to making more regular posts hasn't been as successful as I'd hoped. I miss card making and blogging a lot and some days I feel like I've entered into an alternate reality after having reached a point where I'd been posting every day for months. My card share today uses a digital sentiment that I created to share with you. I thought this would be a good one for OWH cards, since Missing You sentiments always seem to be on the 'current needs' list. The script does make it a little fancy and formal but not so much so, I hope, that you can't use it for a guy card. You can't really perceive it in this photo but the little heart is covered in glossy accents and popped up with a tiny bit of foam tape and the background paper also has some glossy areas, the off-white pattern is actually shiny in person.

Here's the digital sentiment if you'd like to have it.



Just remember that you may use my freebies in any of your personal crafting projects but if you'd like to share it with others I ask that you post a link back to this post so that they can come and download it and see this usage policy. Please do not sell it in any form, repost it,  pin it or claim it as your own. If you want to pin my card, please do and then you will always be able to find your way back to the digi when you're ready to use it. Just click on it and then use the 'download linked file' or 'save as' command to save it to your computer. 


On a personal note, I've finished my first ever website design. I've done freelance design for quite a few years but didn't have a site until now and in 2013 having a website is an absolute must for any business no matter how small. When I was studying design at Parsons in 1987, computer technology in the graphic design arena was still in its infancy and now it seems that in addition to understanding traditional design most every job in the industry requires a whole heap of computer coding and web development skills. It's absolutely bewildering how fast things have evolved and I'd be lying if I didn't say I've had some moments lately where it's making me feel very old. LOL! While I don't have any interest in becoming a computer programmer I am interested in finding a way to expand my skills and make the leap into doing more web related work. If you're so inclined, stop on over (www.desmarsol.com) and let me know what you think.

Happy Crafting!
