It's okay... I'm use to it...

Oh man I'm about to be a debbie downer. Quick! Someone punch me in the arm and snap me out of it! Ha! Actually, I'm not too sad but I'll admit to feeling a twinge of disappointment. I went gung ho and entered myself into the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol and, alas, did not make the top 20. In retrospect, it's a good thing because I really can't handle any added pressure at the moment. But... as with any rejection (such a harsh word) one can't deny that wee bit of disappointment that seems to envelope us. Thankfully, it's brief and it's not stopping me from creating. That would be silly!

And I do love the cards I entered. I stuck true to who I am and my style and will still enjoy these cards. Can't wait to actually give them to someone to celebrate with them!

You did it Congrats

Here is the other one...

Congrats
Supplies: Paper: Pink Paislee, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, The Paper Company, Bling: Kaisercraft, Tool: Silhouette SD
Shapes: Nested_Butterfly and Congrats

This was another favorite. I love that butterfly shape from the Silhouette and the word is so fancy.  It's like fancy meets simple. And who doesn't love a little bling trail?

So I can't be too disappointed! After all... I still get to share them with you, right?

Hope your Friday is going well! I am so glad it's the end of the week. It means I'm that much closer to vacation and this poor, fatigued, brain-fried lady can't wait much longer. Just holding on....
