365 Cards, Shades of Yellow

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

The picture cooperated with the camera today, but the sentiment has just a wee blur - it says Joy is the feeling of grinning on the inside.

Or the outside too I think.

Shades of yellow is the 365 Card assignment today. I don't use yellow often enough.

The pretty swirly piece behind the flower is a SCAL cut - I am running my Cricut hard these days, and loving it.

Dom is in the midst of a huge acquisition at work, and everyone is working so hard - he asked me to make some encouragement cards to go with a gift card for some of the employees. The original card will be coming up at Papercraft Star in two weeks, when we have our sports team challenge. Be sure to watch for it - he says it is the best card I ever made.... lol

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥


  1. I love this card. Dom's employees will appreciate your effort!

  2. always nice on a busy day to take some time to admire your creativity. a very soothing card, on a very trying day. thank you

  3. All your colour cards have been great,especially the yellow one.I don't often use yellow either and we should cos it's cheery .Are we hoping for a purple or maybe orange, only two colour days to go.Have a good weekend.
