Path Of Positivity Guest Designer Midway Post 10/17/2016

Hello, Today I am a guest designer for Path Of Positivity. The theme is Friendship. You can find the challenge here http://pathofpositivitychallenge.blogspot.ca/.


 Sparkle N Sprinkle is the sole sponsor for the main prizes of this challenge. You Can Find Sparkle N Sprinkle here http://sparklensprinkle.com/. They are offering up two prizes for this challenge, which will be:
  • $15.00 worth of digital images for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.

  • A small selection of digital designer papers from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky person who leaves a comment on posts published during the challenge timeframe. http://decossesdynamitedoodles.blogspot.ca/ 
One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge.

I am using Sparkle N Sprinkle's "747bb Holiday Cheer". You can find it here http://sparklensprinkle.com/o/product_info.php?cPath=82_223&products_id=8244

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.

Path Of Positivity Guest Designer Friendship 10/03/2016

Hello, Today I am a guest designer for Path Of Positivity. The theme is Friendship. You can find the challenge here http://pathofpositivitychallenge.blogspot.ca/.


 Sparkle N Sprinkle is the sole sponsor for the main prizes of this challenge. They are offering up two prizes for this challenge, which will be:
  • $15.00 worth of digital images for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
  • $15.00 worth of digital images for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
There will also be:
  • A small selection of digital designer papers from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky person who leaves a comment on posts published during the challenge timeframe. http://decossesdynamitedoodles.blogspot.ca/ 
One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge. 

I am using "April Showers." You can find it here http://sparklensprinkle.com/o/index.php?cPath=250_207_242.

I have 2 cards to share with you. Both have sentiments expressing friendship by someone being able to rely on the sender. Sharing is another way to show friendship. With a friend we tend to be ourselves. They know us inside and out. Yet new friends are made by being kind to a stranger. Kindness and care is what draws others to us. It is what builds on a friendship. We never want to take our friends for granted or to abuse our friendship in any way.
