Free Digi

The Best Dad Ever

Happy Weekend Bloggers.  I hope everyone is having a lovely, crafty weekend.  I wanted to share my latest creations with you and give you a fun freebie for the 4th of July.  The freebie is available for a limited time before it shoots back into the shop. 

My new digi is inspired by my dad.  He loves trains and passed that love down to my brother and the grandchildren.  When creating a card I normally sketch a surprise digi for the recipient but dad had me stumped.  When visiting a few weeks ago dad mentioned that he used to have a model train set years ago.  BINGO!  I got right to work sketching the
 "R.B.G. Express." 

This card is on it's way to N.J. it's for the best dad ever.  The photo on the inside is my brother Bob, sister Donna, Dad and me.  It was taken in 2007 by our mom who sadly, has since passed away.   Bob, Donna and I are not small.  Each one of us is over 6 feet tall and mom had a small couch.  We were trying to fit on the couch and not squash dad as mom ordered us to "squish" closer together so she could fit us in the frame.  Our smiles were from laughing at mom for being so bossy.
It was a good day. <3 

I hope this inspires you to create, get crafty and make happy memories.  Scroll to the bottom for your freebie.  Happy Crafting! <3 -Kim
