Baby Shower prep

Hi There,

Thank you all for the kind comments on the reject :)  That was very sweet of you.  As I submit more for pub calls, I am coming to realize that a denial may not necessarily be a reflection on the quality of your card, but more of what they are looking for.  They have a particular style in mind, or they may have already selected too many cards similar to yours, etc.  While it’s hard to work so hard on something, I am learning not to take it personally.  And if you are interested in getting cards published, just go for it!!! You have to give it a try,  it is so fun when you do get one accepted and then see it in print. 

Okay, enough of my babbling, onto today’s card. I have two baby showers upcoming in February.  I have busily been working on invitations as that is part of my gift.  Thankfully, I already have some baby cards made. Today, I’m going to share one of them with you.  Hope you like!


You can see there is absolutely no stamping on this card.  I just love LOVE this paper.  The little animals are just so darling.  And the sparkly letters (Me and My Big Ideas) are so yummy.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day.

So cute! I love that paper, perfect for a baby shower. I have a few this year to go to myself. There must be something in the water.

Thank you for taking the time to explain a little bit more about the publication process. I am really wanting to submit something but have this really big fear of rejection as part of my ability, and your words here just made me think otherwise. Thanks for putting that in writing for me to refer to after my submissions. Your card is too cute as well, I'm sure the mom to be or new mom will really appreciate it!

I love it Lynnette! I, too, love those papers! Who makes those? Is that Me and My Big Ideas as well? So cute!!

I love that Twitterpatted paper! I used up some of my hoard to make a pack of girly cards for my friend. Don't you just love making cards without any stamps? Somehow it just seems easier to lay out and less likely to mess up. Wonderful job Lynnette.
