I am using Sparkle N Sprinkle's "747bb Holiday Cheer". You can find it here

Friendship... Is special, necessary to our well being, encourages us, makes us happy, helps us to see ourselves better, teaches us to care, be selfless, to put others first.
I wrote the verses for my tag and card. I had an elderly friend in mind when I wrote the one for my tag. She is deceased now, but I knew her for 9 years. She was one special person. She taught me a lot and made me realize I want to be more like her. One day she fell on the ice. A teenage boy saw her and went back to help her. She offered him some money for helping. He told her no, I am a relative. His Mom was related some how to Viola. He acted as a friend that day and saved her life. It was below freezing and she would not have lasted long. I am so thankful he stopped that day.
The verse on the card I wrote with some friends in mind. I have many in different places. Far and near. I think of all of them often but at holiday time we seem to think of them more often. 

The tag is a double sided tag. I have the image on the front and a verse on the back. It is meant to be used as a decoration.

Tri Shutter Card.

Hello my friend! Thank you so very much for being our guest designer this month over on the Path of Positivity. It has been an absolute pleasure having you with us. I truly miss your work as part of the 12MoC team (and know your spot is always waiting for you when you are ready and able to come back) so it was a treat to have you guesting at PoP this month. Your tag is absolutely gorgeous and so is that shutter card. Your cards from the start of the month were also wonderful.

Take care!
