Sympathy Card Using Imagine That! "Pretty Petunia's"

Hello friends!  How are you this fine Summer day?  It is super hot here again; supposed to be over 100.  When I moved to Southern CA in 1998; it was always cooler here; but not anymore.  What happened to our nice cool weather?  So sad. It is just too hot to enjoy anything outside.  It even feels hot indoors; with air conditioning.

Have you seen the adorable images at Imagine That! Creative Playground?  I love the images and sentiments created by Kris.  She is so talented.  I love that you have an option of black and white images or use her perfectly colored ones.  I of course have to use the precolored ones; since her coloring is perfect!  Here is my latest Sympathy card using Imagine That "Pretty Petunia's".  I love this gorgeous set.  It has so many possibilities for any occasion. 

I used one of the precolored images for this card.

Inside card
Using Imagine That! "Sentimental Thoughts" for both sentiments.
