Eat Your Veggies

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!

  1. Congrats on all your satin-y goodness! You look wonderful, but those blue ribbons sure do bring out your beautiful eyes! :) Not sure what those two magazines thought rejecting THAT card, but thank goodness the Fair come thru and redeemed the situation. A Beauty! Can't wait to see all the cards profiled in the coming weeks! xoxo
