Rejected cards - but nevertheless happy (again)

Oh, yes, I submitted to Papercrafts Magazine, too - a few of the amazing number of 2760 entries were mine - but sadly this time all of my cards were not accepted... I felt very sad, because that´s the only opportunity to get a copy of this special issue (I´m already a subscriber of the regular magazine and enjoy every issue - we don´t have anything comparable here in Austria!).
I can´t buy the special issues here in Austria and I don´t buy it in the U.S., because it´s far too expensive because of the shipping costs they charge.

First I wanted to just forget about it, but then I saw, that some of my most appreciated bloggers show their rejected cards - and they´re stunning!!!

Just take a look at Lucy´s cards - amazing!!!   http://hedgehogsandladybirds.blogspot.com/

And - she´s such a sweet lady and picked one of her commenters - ME - for a little gift - THANK YOU!!!!
That´s why I´m happy! :-)

Her example encouraged me to show at least one of my rejected entries, too:
it´s a wedding card - enjoy! ... hopefully ... ;-)




I´d like to join in these challenges:

  13. Hi Du!! Wow, Deine Karte ist absolut der Hammer!! Mach Dir nix draus, dass sie nicht genommen wurde! Du musst bedenken, dass sie wahrscheinlich nur 4 Karten pro Sketch nehmen - und die sollen zusammen auf zwei Seiten gut aussehen. Oft passt da eine wunderschöne Karte nicht zu den anderen dreien! Lucy hat recht, versuch auch mal CARDS, die nehmen auch Karten die schon auf dem blog waren. Aber falls Du noch mehr so schöne Karten hast, poste sie lieber noch nicht und hebe sie Dir für nen anderen PC call auf - ich hatte schon oft Karten akzeptiert bekommen die sie für eine andere Ausgabe abgelehnt hatten. Du weisst nie was sie gerade brauchen! Und wenn Du mal eine Special Issue suchst, schau doch mal bei hier: http://www.scrapbook-center.de/onlineshop/index.html
    Aus Deutschland wirds nicht so viel kosten, oder? Liebe Grüsse, Vanessa x
