The Contenders Blog Hop - The Sun Always Comes Out




Hello! Today I am playing along with The Contenders Blog  Hop hosted by the wonderful Annette Witherspoon.  Like everyone in this world of paper crafting that has submitted to magazines, sometimes you get cards picked up, and sometimes you don't.  Sadly this past call was a big fat goose egg "0" for me. Although I was fortunate to be one of 6 finalists picked by Paper Crafts Magazine for the Readers Choice so that did help with the sting a little bit. ;)  I am here to show you a card that I submitted that was not picked up. I loved this card, and that is what it is all about anyway...being happy, and creating. Here it is:



I used lots of Papertrey Ink goodness in the making of this card.  And the sentiment holds true, The Sun ALWAYS comes out again!
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful, and crafty weekend!
