Mellow Yellow

I was never into yellow, but the last two days have prompted me to re-discover this sunny color more! Now I only wish I have more yellow card stock...check this awesome video by uber talented Sheri Carroll and then I saw Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger An Idea in Yellow
Based loosely on this image, a sunny yellow house card was born..
Life is good
I was lucky to capture some sunshine for this card. Normally I do not like sunlight so much in the card photos. But this one CALLS for sunshine! I paper-pieced the house, pop-dotted the roof for extra dimension and then added the gems...Love the SRM Stickers sentiment Life is Good  on the MS ribbons and "smoke" Hello Sunshine
When you can create to your heart's content and having a safe roof over your head, keeping love, laughter and good health in your life, yes, life is good. Hope this card reminds us all that. I'm ending this post with a happy video (called wishes) that I took in Disney World's Magic Kingdom (Orlando, FL) last week. Enjoy!

From yesterday's comments at the SRM Blog, I want to thank Diana, Christina Traversa, Jennifer Ann and  Isha. I will send you each a card and some small goodies. Please e-mail me (becr8ive@rogers.com) your mailing addresses.

Oh, good for you that you were in Disney World! We went last August. Such a great time. They really know how to treat their guests, don't they?

Your card is soooooo cute, Virginia! You're right about needing lots of drenching sunshine for a sunny paper-pieced house. I love the clean design.

Thanks for leaving me a nice comment today at my blog; I appreciate it so much!

Oh, I love this... funny that a previous monochromatic yellow card of yours motivated me before... I think you might've done it again.

Love Love your yellow card!
I used to not care too much for that color but have discovered the beauty of it.
Your card is not only beautifully designed but it's also radiant!!

Emily Leiphart said...

This is gorgeous, Virginia! I used to shy away from yellow, too, but not anymore. I'm glad you braved it! I love the black rhinestones coming out of the chimney.

V your take on a yellow card is wonderful. I saw this at Moxie Fab as well and still have it on my to do list. But then again you know how slow I am these days with making anything. Lol. Love all that you do here and so impressed that you work too. Love the disney video. I have some dreams too that I pray come true. Thanks for inspiring. Hugs.
