Welcome! So glad you could join me!
Beauty in Simple Things is a sentiment I have heard in the past - But as I get older, I find that I am taking these words closer to my heart and they mean so much to me! I find myself with taking more and more time to rid my life of clutter and surround myself with time for those I love and the things I love to see and do. It was so perfect for this little card. The little bear looks carefree and just taking time to enjoy simple things!
Here is how I created this card!
