New opportunity, seizing chances, freedom
THE CARD’S STORY BY: JOANNA NELSON
The mysterious Yeti is a rare creature, reluctant to venture out. But with the snow blowing at his back and an urge to follow his heart, he emerges from his cavern high atop the mountain and steps to the edge. He realizes that beyond the edge is a ledge, giving him the courage to step down, and begin an exciting new journey. Bursting with potential, he is ready to embrace any opportunity this journey offers. He has no fear, thanks to his snowy companion Frosti, who will help him navigate while encouraging him to keep moving forward. Armed with a sack of resources and a renewed motivation, the mysterious Yeti embraces this new adventure one step at a time, forging his own path, ignoring uncertainty, anxiously waiting for the treasures he will discover.
