Kindness

I was thinking how growing up we have all the Aesop's stories that teach us a moral or a lesson. And how, in this day and age, it seems to be overrated. I'm not sure if all the technology is taking over or what. Anyway, I started to do some research about the stories that are forgotten. You can go here to see them.

I just like the idea, like parables, that while it is teaching a lesson it is also telling a story. People don't write like that anymore where they allow you to think about the results and let you draw your own conclusion and yet you arrive at the same point as the author wants you to go.

Anyway, absolutely have nothing to do w/ the card. I thought it's nice saying and I like how it used so little words to express such a grand idea. I love it and this is a great card as a thank you to my friend. :) One stone two birds.

Supplies:
All by Anna Griffin

To answer your question:
It is a vinyl template from http://www.dragginink.com/index.htm Draggin Ink. It is a tall gift bag but I don't see it on their website.
