Today begins a nine-post series on my annual adventure at the NJ State Fair. This year, I submitted nine cards and was thrilled to win ten ribbons: six Firsts, three Seconds, and for the frosting on the cake, a Best in Show for one of the Firsts! The categories in which I entered were Birthday, Baby, Holiday, Wedding, Anniversary, and Other.
Here's a pic with all of my satin glory . . .
Now on to the lineup . . .
This card was submitted to two magazines and rejected by both of them. OK . . . I can take it. Onward and upward to Plan B: submit to the NJ State Fair . . .
. . . where it promptly won a Blue Ribbon. Humph – so there!
