Sorry I have been “pre-occupied”. I just have so much going on here, that I have hardly been online.

I so appreciate the warm thoughts, prayers and wishes for Alexa! She is doing great today-lots of emotional outbursts (gotta love steroids-and roid rage), but I can’t complain (OK maybe a little).

I stamped today, and was on a Yellow kick!

All I wanted to do was call this post YELLOW. Thats it-plain and simple.

I wanted to investigate WHY I am suddenly drawn to this color (since lately I have been in a pink and black mood). I am always drawn to pink, and that soft sky color. Also celery and chocolate. This was just not my norm, so I did a little “research”!

I thought I would share it with you as I found it all very interesting. Just Google your color.

I think I may research colors more often in my creations BEFORE I make them for specific reasons, since I may want to convey a certain feeling or message. It really is a cool idea.

After my research, and recent news I can see WHY I may have been a in a YELLOW mood.

So read on!

I also think its funny-Im a Taurus and my “color” is yellow. HMMMMM.


Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention getter. While it is considered an optimistic color, people lose their tempers more often in yellow rooms, and babies will cry more. It is the most difficult color for the eye to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused. Yellow enhances concentration, hence its use for legal pads. It also speeds metabolism

Hope and Happiness: Yellow is sunshine. It is a warm color that, like red, has conflicting symbolism. On the one hand it denotes happiness and joy but on the other hand yellow is the color of cowardice and deceit.

Nature of Yellow: Yellow is one of the warm colors. Because of the high visibility of bright yellow, it is often used for hazard signs and some emergency vehicles. Yellow is cheerful.

Culture of Yellow: For years yellow ribbons were worn as a sign of hope as women waited from their men to come marching home from war. Today, they are still used to welcome home loved ones. Its use for hazard signs creates an association between yellow and danger, although not quite as dangerous as red.If someone is yellow it means they are a coward so yellow can have a negative meaning in some cultures.

Now onto my YELLOW cards.

 This first one is for a friend going through an emotional time. Its hard to be there for someone so far away.

I LOVE this sentiment.

I thought my friend could use a little card, to let her know I am thinking and praying for her and her situation. This will go postal tomorrow.

I LOVE the Elzybells images. I was about to come off my stamp spending probation when we got hit with the several hundred dollar vet bill :C So its back in effect.

Lynda was super sweet to send me several of these images, to tie me over.

This one came in handy!

I can’t buy MORE Elzybells till I use what I have more. BUMMER, I know.

I thought this girl was perfect for the situation, and message I wanted to send.

The moon sparkles, and so does the star, which was done using my SU! star punch (love that one! I heart stars).  I love the girl hanging for the star.

The stamped stars are from Green Grass Stamps-Card Greetings (retired).

The little stars are Creative Card Candy Twinkle stickers by A Muse.

Next up-a super simple and under 10 minutes card.

YES! Another SU! sample! WOW!!!

This card was so super fast. It uses the Spring Solitude bundle.

It would have been faster if I didn’t add bling flower centers, and tie my ribbon trough the card the way I did.

I could have fiddled with it more, but decided to leave it be.

As busy and simple as it is, its kinda pretty with just these colors.

Made me happy. Even though I was SOOOOO tempted to add something to the top. Oh well. Maybe I should have left the ribbon off?

Anyway-I wanted to share it just the same.

Tune in tomorrow for our blogger’s challenge.

Kids School vacation starts too-OH BOY! That should be a fun week.

Thanks for checking in here again.

Till tomorrow.
