Path of Positivity Challenge Reminder - Present Not Perfect


It's time for our mid challenge reminder post on the Path of Positivity Challenge - our theme this month is 'present not perfect'.  

This is what Lisa has said about the theme here on our challenge blog:

"Our challenge for you this month is to step out of your perfection zone and be positive about what you have to contribute! Perhaps you visit the site and enjoy the work of others and share something with us for the first time! Maybe you’ve shared many times, but now you will try a new technique you’ve been afraid to try for fear of failing. Possibly you’ve wanted to try doing a video or pictorial teaching aid to go along with your art. Another idea, is to make a sympathy or encouragement card for someone who might need to know you are thinking of them. Don’t worry about the perfect words; a lovely picture can go a long way to convey your thoughts. Of course, you could always share a card encouraging someone else to step out of their zone or letting them know just how wonderful they are just by being present in your life!"

And our wonderful sponsors this month are:

For my card I've used a digi stamp set from Imagine That Digis called 'Freda's Flower Basket' - you can find it here on their website.
