Well, here we are at the beginning of another week. Did you have a nice weekend? Ours was busy and HOT. It didn’t rain on Saturday, so we took advantage and worked outside. Carlin trimmed some branches that had been damaged during storms and mowed. I spray washed the deck. We had some issues with the power washer we rented (couplings and starting), but we persevered. After nearly 4 hours of washing, our neck is quite clean now. It’s amazing how different it looks. I plan on staining/waterproofing it soon.
Today, we had church, and I was so exhausted that I came home and indulged in a Sunday afternoon nap. I love naps, I mean I really love them. Lately, we’ve been so busy that I’ve not allowed myself to take one. Today, though, I caved it, and it was bliss.
SO, enough of my ramblings. Because we’ve been busy, I’ve not spent much time in the craft room. However, I do have some projects to post. I have some projects that I submitted to the Paper Crafts publication call that weren’t picked up. I am very excited to say that I did have one card picked up! This is the first time that PC has picked up something of mine, and I am just thrilled.
So, here’s today’s reject :)
I still love this card even though it didn’t make the cut. I had the idea of this in my head for a long time, and the first couple of lay-outs I tried, I didn’t like as much. I my try the concept again in another lay-out. I just love the idea of the kitty dreaming about a fish for his birthday. (Yes, the cat is a boy in my mind, at least for this card…. I usually color him like Frodo who is a boy).
Anyway, I hope you like today’s post. And I’ve said it before, if you are submitting for publications, keep trying. Perseverance pays off. I had been trying for a year with PC and had almost decided to take a break. You just never know what they are looking for, and each magazine seems to have a different style.
Hope you have a fabulous day!
Hugs and blessings
