This card is going to a former co-worker and friend. Each year, my friend Pam and I co-host a Christmas party for a bunch (the attendance varies each year) of former co-workers/friends. Our workplace closed down in 1999 but, thankfully, we continue to stay in touch. This annual party is SO much fun! Each year, one particular friend brings gifts for me and Pam. She is just so sweet. Even though she has dealt with the loss of loved ones, 2 years in a row - in November...she still is so thoughtful and giving to others. What a blessing she is to those around her.
This card is going out to her, in thanks for the sweet gift...and her friendship.
I'm participating in the following challenges, with this card ~
