Long time no post!

Hey bloggers,

I know I've been MIA. You know I think as card makers we sometimes get lost in the envy mode. What I mean by that is, we'll no one comments, my counter is not going up, and look I can't get published.

I know my Nana, has gone through this lately, and I think for me not getting in to the OWH book, I just got really down.

I am not giving up, I love this hobby way to much. I love the smell of ink, the feel of paper and the stickiness of glue..LOL

This is my card I made for the book, it did not make it, I assume she never responded, And that really ticks me off. At least take a sec to say hey, sorry it's not what I wanted. Oh, well live and learn.

I also tried out for MO's design team and did not make it. Oh well, at least I tried.

This card I really love, the flower is with this really cool techie thing my friend showed me, you take your image after it's been embossed and spritz it with water a lot so it's laying on the paper, then you take your ink refills dab a brush into them and lightly dip it onto the paper it kinda just sits on the paper and when it dries you get this fab mix of colors etc. Love it! The background was done with castaway ink, I had not played with it for a while, and forgot how fun it is.

I have a few great cards to share, and some other neat news. So stay tuned for more!

Keep trying, Dawn! Not everyone gets published the first few times around, whether it's making cards or writing a book. You'll get there one of these days. You have some great talent! Someone in the publishing world will recognize it one of these days!

Thank you card!

This is a super quick and easy card today.  I love how The megaphone comes out of the paper.
