The Sugar's Creations....

Fond Farewell: Anita Hovey

We are approaching the end of our first term with the Modern Sugar Blvd Design Team. Those gals we affectionately call "The Sugars". Every Sugar is so talented and their creations have been much appreciated over these last several months.

Some of the Sugars are continuing on but several of our Sweet Girls are stepping down, due to other commitments that they had already made. We will greatly miss having them design with us each month. Of course, we'll still be keeping an eye on them, checking them out and cheering them on in their future endeavors - that's just what Sugars do, after all. I feel like it's kinda like the Marines: "Once a Sugar, Always a Sugar!"

I wanted to give each gal a Fond Farewell here on the blog and hope that you'll enjoy a bit of insight into who she is and leave her some love at the end!

Anita Hovey

MSB: What is your favorite thing about digi stamps?
Anita: The versatility! Being able to change the size or direction, being able to use only parts of the image. And, of course, the amount of storage :)
MSB: What MSB image is YOU - represents you, your style, your personality, your soul, your interests, etc.
Anita: I am "I totally support you". I love to do charity work, support friends in new ventures, support my kids at school, etc. I think of myself as a very supportive person.
MSB: What color combo is your favorite?
Anita: That's a tough one. I love bright colors...Hot Pink, Lime Green & Orange is one of my favs, but I also like the classic simplicity of Black & Pink, Black & Red or Black & Yellow...can I have 4 favs? (MSB: absolutely!!)
MSB: What is your favorite technique?
Anita: I'm not a big technique person, really. I think a lot of times techniques actually take the focus away from the image/sentiment of a card. However, paper piecing is fun...and especially easy with digi images.
MSB: And finally 2-3 of your favorite creations using MSB images.

Anita: This Much
My absolute fav creation for MSB! I love this one because this is what my DDs and I say at night...we make a big joke about it to see who can spread their arms wider.

Anita: Deserve a Break
I like this card because it really gives the feeling of a comfy coffee shop break. It's also a great example of paper piecing (the chair).
Anita: Cake
I love the bright colors of this card. I made the sentiment myself and it just makes me giggle. (MSB: Me too! I love it!)
Anita: I'd like to thank the gals at MSB for choosing me...they were the first ones to give me a chance to be on a design team and I am very grateful to have had the experience.
Thank you Anita for sharing your talents with us these past few months. We've loved the creativity you've brought and wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
