Thoughts On Submitting and Rejection
1. First and Foremost, you can't get accepted unless you submit: Sometimes Submitting lives a normal life and walks hand and hand with Rejection. Just a matter of fact.
2. Don't take rejection personally: It could be that your card couldn't find its soul mate for the magazine in terms of color, style or product. Who knows, it just might find the love of its life in a future issue if you decide to give it the chance again!
3. Dare to be different: Perhaps Rejection decided to be an unwelcome house guest this month as it knew it'd be comfortable with the familiarity of design and product in your projects?
(The same thoughts I apply to challenges as well.)
Just had these thoughts in my running around in my head recently and decided to share them with you. They don't really have anything to do with the cards...unless you received an acceptance email recently or gave your first go-round to the submission process-then Congratulations!
Today marks the 20th Challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. Thank you, everyone, for making this such a great and go-to challenge site. We love to see your creations! It's all about making mini cards this week and the fabulous sponsor is Annabelle Stamps. For more about the challenge, challenge rules, sponsor prizes and to see great inspiration from the Girl Fridays, mosey on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog!
For me, mini cards and card sets go hand in hand so that's what I've done here! I limited myself to work with one stamp set. It offered a variety of different sentiments that allowed me to keep the same design for an overall cohesive look. The size of each card measures 3.25 x 3.5 inches.
