An idea in yellow...

An idea in yellow...it can be the beginning for many happy thoughts. That is the "idea" behind this bright and sunny card inspired by the Moxie Fab World Tuesday trigger photo.  Reminds me of spring popping up and pushing the grey skies in the background. What do you think?

Where did my creative adventure take me today? Can you just imagine a big, rambling Victorian house painted creamy yellow and trimmed in bright white. On the porch is a big white rocker surrounded by moss-lined pots of flowers --- just starting to burst open. Wish I was there now with a big
 glass of homemade lemonade.

Stay warm harted,
