The Living is Easy in Summer

Well, summer is almost over, and I can't say that I'll miss it much. I don't have younger children enjoying summer vacation, I don't have summer off, and the weather has been a little weird to totally enjoy the season. So, on to Fall, but I hope gradually, producing a glorious burst of colors and smells with a bountiful harvest to follow.
To celebrate all that summer was (and should have been), I created a card using the featured image at DeeDee's Digis. It's called Seasonal Baskets and includes 6 outline images (includes bonus "Empty Basket" image!), 5 pre-colored images, 5 white-filled layering images, and 3 sentiments, in JPG and PNG file formats. And crafters, this image set is half price right now, through the end of the month, for just $1.25!!
I received this image free, because DeeDee's Digis challenge blog hosts a progressive freebie challenge. When you use the featured image during the month and link up to the challenge blog, you receive the next month's free.
Back to my card - I used the pre-colored Summer Basket and popped it onto patterned paper. After framing it with both cardstock and a couple file tabs, I added another image from DeeDee's Digis, the black kitty. He's from the image set "Open Window." This is just one of the many things I love about digital images. You can pick and choose from several different sets if you wish.
Before I list the materials I used, why don't you check out the store at DeeDee's Digis. I hope you'll be interested enough by all that is offered there to start playing before the month is out, so you can start stacking up those free digis throughout the year. Have fun!
