Hi there and welcome to the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Thanks Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from the Lawn Fawn blog,
Although I haven’t actually been published in PSC…. I did have 5 cards picked for the April and May issues. I’m sad that they won’t be published but the excited and joy I felt when they were accepted will not fade. The thought that someone else ( a whole group of people – the PCS team!) liked my work ….. and enough to want to share it with people is priceless and this feeling will stay with me.
Even though this is a great feeling and memory, my best memory comes from not getting an acceptance email for the February and March issues. After not getting one in the Feb addition a tried again for the March … I really thought that I would have a card picked …. but sadly no acceptance email 🙁 The next day though I had a email that I will treasure forever! A message from Susan saying not to give up….. she said she liked my cards but they were just not right for that issue. I was not going to submit anything for the April issue until this email, but after receiving it I made some cards up and submitted…. I had two picked. Thank you so much Susan for being a cheerleader for me … your email will never be forgotten.
Before I got the dreaded closing email I was working on a card for the last submission call….. Farmers Market. I thought it was fitting to share this one today …….
So even though I will never see any of card cards in the pages of the Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine I am still truly grateful for the encouragement and joy I got from the acceptance emails 🙂
Next on the hope is the amazingly talented ( and my fellow NND teamie) Samantha Mann……
I would really love to know what you think of my card! Please leave me a comment, maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my blog If your interested I’m also on Facebook and I share sneak peeks of my projects (and my life) on Instagram.
Hope you have a beautiful day and I hope to see you again soon!
