They Call Me Mellow Yellow....

...well not really but be prepared for a lot of yellow in this post LOL!
I joined in for the first time over at A Swap for All Seasons hosted by Linda. The fact that the theme was "Spring" was just what I wanted to work on! Three items needed to be created and sent to another swapper starting with a handmade card.
I have always loved this image - I have two postcards from England from the late 1950's  featuring images done by Berta Hummel. I copied this one to use for my card. The background is fabric I copied on to card stock (one of my favorite things to do). 
The second item was a handmade tag...
This is similar to another I did for Tag Tuesday awhile back. I had all the materials still so I figured "what the heh" and included yellow birds on the tag.
I included a little stand for displaying.
Last was a little yellow "destash" - the timing was perfect as I have been doing a lot of that lately.
Though surprisingly I don't have a lot of yellow...
See those clothes pegs - my decorative painting "phase" still comes in handy now and then LOL. Any who everything has been sent to Elizabeth. Looking forward to seeing what I will be receiving from Bev! Enjoy. Jewels

  8. I feel that yellow is the colour of hope and promise, Spring and renewal - add in a bit of fresh green and your away! A delightful collection of lovely bits and bobs you have put together there. Do your needles blunt a great deal when sewing paper?

    Have a lovely yellow, sunny day
    Best wishes

  9. Oh, what a fun package you put together. I am in love with the blue, white and yellow quilted piece and will pin that pic on my Pinterest To Do board so I can copy it.

    Thanks for the sweet words on my blog which led me to you.

    I too will be back.
