Friends

Ah, rejection, my friend!  It's not so bad when I consider the company I am likely to keep with rejection.  I am going to befriend rejection because I am sure there is something for me to learn here.

So....this is a little number I created for a recent Papercraft's Magazine submission.  You see, I would like to have my work published one day.  It's a dream.  In order to me to ever get there, I must submit.  So I have been submitting for a few months now.  I believe it will likely be a long road!

Eyelets seem like they are a bit dated, but I love the look they give here.  They are almost like little portholes!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend.

Lovely card, Toni! Love the embossed background, sweet sailboat and quote!

Well, I LIKE it... that's got to account for something! :) Recognize, too, that 'rejection' probably isn't the proper term. It's more likely 'darn! we can't select them all! Choices are hard.'
I 'horned in' here from your comment on Becca's blog and will look at more of your beautiful work.
