"Sew" Rejected.....

Good morning!  I hope that you are having a great weekend.  Today is my workshop day, and tomorrow is a busy day as well.  We will go to church in the morning, and are going to the Fox Theater to see the live production of West Side Story in the afternoon.  Should be a wonderful day!

Since things have been "sew" hectic this week, I thought I'd share another publication reject with you.  This was for a "Sew" Thankful call.  Since sending it off, and having it declined, TAC (The Angel Company) went out of business, so I'm sorry to say that the stamps are no longer available, but I wanted to show the card anyway!






As you can see, this was created gatefold style.  The belly band was made so that the focal piece could be used as a magnet after opening the card.  I thought it turned out fairly cute...

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Monday should be back to normal.  I'm looking forward to seeing your weekend creations!

Hugs and blessings, my friends...off I go - wish me luck!

Sew neat. I don't understand why that didn't get published - what were they thinking? Their loss is our gain. I really like the bellyband/magnet idea. I always have trouble getting gatefolds to close. Have a great time at West Side Story. I haven't been to the Fox in years.

How creative you are! You know me, I love anything vintage and with a 'sew' awesome theme. Sounds like retirement isn't all about retiring to a chair and relaxing - hope you have fun this week-end and take time to relax on Monday!

Donna said...

What's wrong with those magazine people anyway.....this is beautiful. So many beautiful details....rejection is tough, but we all got to see it and admire it!
Enjoy the live performance and tell us all about it later.....

Wow Patti, what a fab card and gorgeous images (I hadn't heard that TAC had gone out of business, how sad)
Hope you had a brilliant time at West Side Story!

Theresa Momber said...

It's fabulous! Love the fancy fold and great color combo. Keep submitting. I've had tons of rejects, but every now and then something gets picked up. You're awesome!

Carolyn King said...

It is a great card!! Love it! Most of the time, rejection from a publication is not because your card isnt good... Just didt fit their need! Its a great card!! Xo

Amanda Mertz said...

So cute Patti! They were silly to not publish this one! I love the soft colors and the magnet part! TFS!

Audrey Frelx said...

Can't imagine anyone rejecting this beautiful card!!! Shame on them!!! Their loss as far as I'm concerned. However, it sounds as though you still had a wonderful day and I'm happy to hear that!

Deedee Anderson said...

I can't believe they didn't choose this, Patti! This is truly amazing! I think this is one of my all-time favorites of your cards. From the special fold to the interior decor, it's just so intricate, with so many sweet details. I really like how you used the neutral colors to give it that vintage feel, too. Absolutely amazing!
