The World is a Better Place Because of You


The World is a Better Place Because of You

I made this card to celebrate the friends
who touch our lives and truly make the
world a better place to be :)

Additional symbolism:
1. Kuan Yin (top left corner): Kuan Yin is
an East Asian bodhisattva (Goddess) of
compassion. It is said that as Kuan Yin was
about to enter heaven, she paused and
heard the cries of the world, her compassion
was so great she returned to help them.
The qualities that Kuan Yin invokes, the
feeling of compassion and unconditional
love make her comparable to Mother Mary

2. The quilt symbolizes and warmth of our most
cherished friendships.It us that kindness is like a
warm blanket wrapped around our shoulders.
We feel safe and soothed by the kind gestures
of others. A quilt is often a community project
based on the connections and stories of the
women who make them.

3. The Blue Bird: The symbol of a bluebird
is the harbinger of happiness. Bluebird brings
the reminder that joy and
fulfillment are around us everyday.

4. The little boy hugging the bunny reminds
us to allow our inner child out every once in
a while. To enjoy and embrace warm fuzzy
feelings of softness and kindness for no
particular reason. Allow our inner child to be
vulnerable, tender, free to express our simplest
joys and to be loving.

5. The tree of love symbolizes that the love
and caring in our true friendships never stops
growing. A tree that is watered and tended with love,
kindness and empathy with grow forever.

6. The woman laughing represents the simplest
of joys we feel when we are touched by the
connection of friendships and knowing that
we matter to ones who we care about.

For this card, pink was chosen for the inside
because the colour pink represents caring,
compassion and love. Pink invokes feelings
of warmth, safety, kindness, grace and tenderness.
Pink soothes our fears and allows us to feel
safe in who we are. It is the colour of our
heart center and brings to mind the sweetness
of being cared about.
