Cards!

Good news... Chase and I are doing some painting this weekend, so you might get some long over due decorating posts (do bats count). So check back in for that.

In other random news, I just started a new book (see my side bar). It's pretty fantastic so far. What are you reading? Anything good?

Tonight I just have some older cards to show you. I made both of these for the Embellish magazine call. Unfortunately neither got picked for the magazine. Normally, I don't think I'd admit that, but I know I've had more rejected than accepted. And I think it's good to just admit it. However, now that I think about it, I never talk about the card that get balanced. Anyways, all that to say here's my nod to perseverance! These may not have made it, but other will. Actually my first boss taught me a good saying "SWSWSW - Some Will, Some Won't, So What." My first job I was in charge of sponsorship sells and obviously that was about persevering too!


Now that I look at these, they both look super masculine. Oh except that blue flower! Ha!

Also, don't forget to check back early tomorrow morning for a new EVERYTHING BUT THE KITCHEN SINK challenge! It's a good one, and certainly something to get you thinking outside the box!
