CPS230 - be the kind of woman....

Yesterday was a difficult day.  Not personally, but because I need to try to make sense of why some people make the choices they do. I was left wondering if they will ever understand how their choices impact the lives of those around them.   Sadly, I think not.  We took dinner to a family who has a member in the hospital.  Her life is changed forever, her family's life is changed, her friends lives are changed, all because of her choices. 

The experience left me more determined however to:


I used the sketch from CPS230


Supplies:
Cardstock - PTI , Girls Paperie, Neenah
Stamps - Rubbernecker 582-10
Ink - Versamagic
Other - Flower - Petaloo, MS punch, corner rounder, string pearls, foam tape, SB circle dies, double sided tape




Pin It!

What an amazing card and what a fabulous use of the CPS sketch! I so hear you on the weight of our decisions and their impact. Sorry this has touched your life but these things do give us reason to ponder.

I believe I understand just what you mean, Charlene. Some of those bad choices did not have to be made. In this case it's true ... we live & learn. But hopefully we do that in time to prevent sadness or loss.

Love your card for sure!
