{Keep Trying, Keep Trying, Don't Give Up}


Well, if any of you have small children, then you have probably seen an episode or two of "Yo Gabba Gabba". The title of my blog today is a song from YGG that gets stuck in my head for days whenever I hear it. lol  The words ring true today....I did not have any cards picked up in the PC Magazine "Go To Sketch" edition card call. It hurts the pride I admit, and briefly made me question whether or not "I've got it". But after I lick my wounds for a few hours my love of paper crafting overshadows the pangs of rejection and I start thinking about my next card. =0) Today I am  posting one of my "rejects". I used paper from the new Jillibean Soup collection "Dutch Mustard". Aren't the colors fun? I used sketch #69. I made the flower using basic heart shapes that I glued to a 1" circle punch. I still love this card, and will keep trying, and for my fellow paper crafters, keep trying, don't give up!

     On a much happier note though I am extremely pleased to announce that I was chosen to be Pink Cat Studio's Guest Designer for the St. Pattie's day Digi stamp release!!  Yay me, and thank you Melissa for the honor of representing  PCS!

   And I can't believe I forgot to mention this super exciting news, I signed up this week to be one of the very first A|Muse Creative Consultants! If you have not checked out the new catalog here is a link:

 I have never seen so many stamps, and matching supplies that I love, and I truly mean that.The prices are great on the stamp sets which is what made me decide to become a consultant. If you would like to put in an order let me know. I would love to be your creative consultant!

Congrats on the Guest Designer Gig! Love your card - great colours. Keep trying - it took me several tries at submitting before I got accepted. You go girl!

Hey.. don't be afraid of not having picked up a card! Your card is soooo beautiful and I think it sometimes is just the right/wrong color combo or something like that, that makes a card get picked or rejected? It's definitely not the quality of your card.. it's adorable!

haha, well my kids must be old enough b/c I have no idea what "Yo Gabba Gabba" is. :) Still love your card though and how well those papers match each other - reminds me of quilt strips. :) You've definitely "got it"!
