Take risks


Okay, so here’s the thing!  About a week ago, I published a post about some cards that I had submitted for publication.  The cards were not accepted, but I thought I would share them for inspiration anyway.  Well, thanks to my pals at DCWV, the story of my rejection got out, and before I knew it, I had page after page of comments from all of you sharing in my feeling of rejection and encouraging me to craft on!  🙂  The comments were wonderful, and I was so humbled that so many of you took some time out of your day to post your comments of support.  It really did mean a lot to me!

From there, I just did some layering with the great patterns, added a bit of ribbon from May Arts, and topped it off with some brads (because really, what is a “collector”card without one of my favourite things to collect – brads!)

Thank-you again for your kind words and encouragement!!!  I read every single one of the comments here and on the DCWV blog, and each comment was something special to me!

Live-dimensionThanks for stopping by!

  2. This is SO pretty!!!!! I love it! And please DON’T give up on submitting!!!! I KNOW it can be discouraging, and I know it takes a lot to put yourself and your work out there. Even after having a lot of work published, it’s STILL hard sometimes to take a risk, and share things I’ve made. Please remember, that just because a card isn’t picked up for publication, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t fantastic. Sometimes they’re looking for certain colors, or they need more of a certain style and they have to pass on a LOT of really fabulous projects. So keep trying!!!!!!! Okay?! 🙂
