Bliss...


Hey girls!

I hope you all have had a wonderful New Years. The hubby and I rang in the New Year with a few friends and popped the champagne cork at midnight! Whoo-hoo! I actually stayed up this year. I won't bore you with my New Year's resolutions this time because they are pretty much the usual except that one involves crafting. This year I am going to start submitting to magazines. I have noticed that most of you (my blog friends) have and were published, so I thought, why not? Who cares if they are never picked but at least I can say I tried. Right?

Anywho, I wanted to pop in to share a card I made for the latest Play Date Cafe Color Challenge #62. I used a few of my new stamps from Papertrey Ink that I recently purchased as a gift to myself for Christmas. LOL!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

You are a perfect candidate for a published artist! Go for it! And with gusto and confidence, my friend, as you are an excellent card maker.

Well it's about time you start submitting! You WILL get picked up - just keep trying if not the first go 'round. Good luck to you :)

I love your card too! The faint musical notes paired with the hot pink is just... HOT! lol

Yes you definitely must start submitting Brandi, your cards are beautiful! I love the two backgrounds you have used here - the music and polka dots and of course the dress form.

You will do great...I can't wait to see your name and cards in the magazines that I get:-) I started to last year and then got discouraged way too easy. Maybe I should start again too??

LOOOOOVVEE this! Fab use of the colors and I'm such a sucker for polka dots so I'm swooning over that scallop!!
I'm so glad you're going to go for it and start submitting!! Your work is gorgeous so its about time ;)
The only sure way to NOT get published is to NOT submit. I'd rather have a chance then a sure thing anyday!! :D
