Last Friday the acceptance emails went out for the Paper Crafts magazine special sketch issue. When your project/s are chosen for publication, you receive an email with your next step of instructions. Its a very happy email day when those arrive! While I had several cards chosen for the issue, and that is always a huge honor, I also had several rejects. This being one of them. Does it make me sad? Possibly, but you know what? Not really. This is a card that I would never had made on my own. But I love it. LOVE the way it turned out. LOVE the way the sketch pushed me out of my usual comfort zone. I made something that makes me happy and when I send it, someone else will be happy. I guess my point is, submit, submit, submit. You never know what they are looking for. Maybe this card didn’t work in the color scheme. Maybe this was not creative enough. You just never know, and because of that, just submit. :)
I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! We did some Iowa exploring. Its nice to keep learning about our new home. And yes there is more than corn, pigs, and cows here! :) thanks for stopping by!
