SCT Publication Reject... but there's a reason why :)

Hello, sweet friends! 

THANK YOU for leaving me some love on my last post! I really appreciate it ❤️

As you know, it's been several years since I have submitted any cards or really had time in my studio (I barely get an hour or two a week now). Well, I'm trying to change that! It's my goal to submit creations per quarter in 2021. I don't care if they get picked up or showcased in a magazine. I just want to challenge myself to create again. 

My first opportunity to submit for a magazine was in January for the Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine!!! That was until I missed the deadline 🤦🏼‍♀️ GOOD NEWS!!!! SCT extended their deadline by a week or so--- HOOOOORAY

I had a few ideas of what I wanted to do for this submission, and I was able to create one project- haven't heard back so it's probably a reject as well. Oh well! LOL! The following card was also for this submission call and I already know it's a reject because...
I missed the second deadline! 🤦🏼‍♀️ Oh well. I had so much fun getting crafty. 

This card was inspired by a graphic design image I saw on Pinterest for an app, Pixo??? I've never heard of it and I can't click the graphic because it pulls up random stuff. Either way, I found inspiration in this photo. 

I used the sentiment and heart as my inspiration. I used all The Stamp Market dies, stamps, inks, and papers for this card (supply list below). I absolutely love love love it! 
I know rejection is hard. But I'm not looking at it the way I used to- it's more of a WIN-WIN for me. I have a goal to submit each quarter. I completed this goal once already- WIN  And if the cards are rejected then I have an extra card to sell or give away- WIN 

That's it for me today. MORE is coming!!! I have a few more projects using the Etc. Papers Synthetic EVO Papers and alcohol inks, as well as the other reject card!!! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! I can't wait to share more of my creations with you each week. #itsgoodtobeback 

Be blessed ❤️

Too bead it was late, because it's terrific! You have a good attitude going into this. Our card making should be fun, not stressful!

It is a great card and an awesome goal! I used to submit all the time too a d an just glad to be stamping but maybe have to try to do more like you as well. Still think that card is fantastic and someone will maybe want it to give to their Mom :-)
