Sympathy Card Using Imagine That Digis Freda's Flower Basket

Hello friends!  It's a sunny day in Southern CA!  I hope your weather is nice wherever you are; and that you are having time to enjoy it.  It was already too hot this morning for me to ride my bike; so I wasn't able to ride today.  

I thought I would share another creation that I made with Imagine That Digis "Freda's Flower Basket".  I love these sweet images; especially the colored ones. They are fabulous, especially when you need a card in a hurry and don't have time to color an image.  I am spoiled when it comes to using Kris's digis.  I rarely color one; because her colored ones are perfect.  How can you beat perfection?  

Path of Positivity Challenge - The Beauty of Nature.  I really do believe the saying "Take time to stop and smell the flowers".  I think we get so busy with everyday life; that we forget nature is our greatest stress reliever.  I love to see the changes in nature from one season to the other.  We still have some of that in Southern CA; but nothing like MO, where I grew up.  I used to do more activities outside; but life gets so hectic right now; that it is hard to just take the time to sit outside or take a walk on the beach or just a walk around the neighborhood. We have to remember that nature is calling.  Are you going to answer that call or sit inside all the time?
