I'm tired of thinking of a new title everyday. I'd, personally, like to go back to numbering my posts. But a VERY loyal reader doesn't like it very much.

This is a reject from the most recent publishing call from Paper Crafts Magazine. I really thought it would bother me more, to not have any picked up. But I'm ok, Rome wasn't built in a day.

This is the first time I've submitted to Paper Crafts and I submitted 5 cards. I know there are some girls who submit 20 and more cards, I guess their odds are better. I also guess their cards are better, ha.

I'll try again next time.

stamps: PTI & Hero Arts
card stock: PTI rustic cream, hawaiian shores, kraft
ink: PTI hawaiian shores, pure poppy
tools: cuttlebug, nesties
accessories: Wright's 1-1/2" grosgrain
adhesives: scor-tape, eksuccess 1/8" foam

I love the colors.

Patti J said... least you are brave enough to try! I did about 18 mo. ago, and did have things publised, and for whatever reason, have been terrified ever since! Go figure... Your card is awesome! I love the layout and the colors are beautiful! Hang in there - it will happen!

Nice colors, layouts and everything! I wouldn't give up if I were you.

Purty! And if I have to make up blog post names, so do you. Hmph. Although, some people leave them untitled, not that I'm suggesting YOU should do that.

I love the colors .... I expect you to send me a card for 4th of July, or old high school friends day, etc.

Love you!

Keep trying I know that you will totally be published as your work is just amazing! Such a gorgeous card! I love the design! So happy to see your crafting again! Yay! It is hard sometimes to come up with titles, I sometimes go with funny ones although I wonder if anyone thinks it's funny!
