April ATC

April ATC

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 donít 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 doesnít 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 Iíd 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

    What a wonderful ATC Sara - I love the cool poem AND your pretty blue ATC!
    Really neat ATC Sara - I love it! Ditto what Sherry said! ;)
    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:
    You've made an outstanding card. Crafty Kids is perfect for this poem - I've never seen that verse before. It is wonderful.

    Lovely ATC, Sara and I really like your poem! Also really like how you used your favorite color as a background for your card and I really like the red hearts, too. Very creative and pretty ATC!
    Clever take on the challenge!
    Wonderful Sara. That poem is beautiful and so true. Love your ATC, all blue with splashes of Red.
    You are so clever! This is outstanding ... so glad I'm getting one for my collection!!
