Hey there! This year I sent in ten cards for the Paper Crafts Magazine Stamping Royalty contest, and I wanted to share my "rejects" with you today. I won in 2012, so I was a bit surprised that I had a card chosen as an honorable mention winner this year. Yay! But now I have to wait until July (?) to find out if I won the big prize. Boo! lol Anyway, on with the rejects....
