My favorite color is really blue but I find that when I'm trying to choose I can never decide between all of the beautiful colors God has given us so I found this little poem that kind of says how I feel about colors! The author is unknown, so enjoy! And I haven't been feeling very creative lately, so my apologies on the lack of creativity in my ATC..........

 

While walking in a toy store

The day before today,

I overheard a Crayon Box

With many things to say.

I don’t like red! said Yellow.

And Green said, Nor do I!

And no one here likes Orange,

But no one knows quite why.

We are a box of crayons that really doesn’t get along,

Said Blue to all the others.

Something here is wrong!

Well, i bought that box of crayons

And took it home with me

And laid out all the crayons

So the crayons could all see

They watched me as I colored

With Red and Blue and Green

And Black and White and Orange

And every color in between

They watched as Green became the grass

And Blue became the sky.

The Yellow sun was shining bright

On White clouds drifting by.

Colors changing as they touched,

Becoming something new.

They watched me as I colored.

They watched till I was through.

And when I’d finally finished,

I began to walk away.

And as I did the Crayon box

Had something more to say...

I do like Red! said the Yellow

And Green said, So do I!

And Blue you are terrific!

So high up in the sky.

We are a Box of Crayons

Each of us unique,

But when we get together

The picture is complete.

 

And I used ACA Crafty Kid's goodies for my ATC

I love that poem, I've never heard it before. I love the border you have given the card, and a beautiful shade of blue.

I love this, Sarah! What a great poem. I'm going to copy it and keep it. Gorgeous blue for your background, and the simple embellishments are perfect for letting the poem take center stage. You are delightul, Sarah! I can just picture you not wanting to choose any particular shade of blue in case that hurts all the other blues' (and the other colors') feelings. :lol:
