PDCC #116

Hey Bloggeritas!  I'm consumed with publication calls right now.  Literally.  I mean, it's hard to create for design teams, challenges that are fun and pub calls too.  I try to think outside the box so that my cards get noticed and often times I feel like the box has collapsed on top of me!  In the grand scheme of things, getting published is not the most important thing.  I mean, I am a mama, a wife, a student and an employee so, I have other goals, responsibilities and dreams.  But, it's just a goal that has been gnawing at my crafty mind. 

So I said all that to say that this card is a product of my stressed mind, at 11:00pm, sitting at my craft desk, after working 8 hours, driving through traffic, cooking for my family, bathing and putting my son to sleep, doing some homework and STRESSING (albeit unnecessarily) over getting published.  This one is for the Play Date Cafe!



Sigh...don't judge me...too hard!

Your card is beautiful, it totally stands out in the gallery. But I do understand what you are saying, I've felt that too.

I love the gorgeous elements...especially the leaf. The colors are fab too. You are too hard on yourself. Design with your own style in mind and you will get published. :)

I love the big blue ribbon!!! It's so rich and vibrant and adds so much to your card. Beautiful!

And I know how you feel about getting published. Sometimes I worry about it too and then wonder...what am I worrying about?? Just keep making great cards like this one and i'm sure you will get noticed and published soon!!
