Waltzingmouse, Trigger and a few others

So, I am trying to check other things off my 2010 list, and one of those is to get published. OK, I actually just wanted to start submitting in 2010 and I have checked that off my list. What is a list if you don't add as you check off? So, I added getting published.  Here is the quandary, I never know if I should post cards on my blog and still submit them for consideration. Thankfully, many of the publications clearly state, "please do not post submission online." 

SO, today I am taking a risk. I submitted this card for consideration but I am still posting it because I wanted to share with those who follow me. I mean, I might not ever post here if I only consider the concept of publication. I want to be published, but it is more important to me that the people who actually follow my blog get what they come for when they visit. 

This card is for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger. I also listed a few other challenges it works for under the link section at the bottom of this post.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest creation. I'd love to hear from you so leave a comment or ask a question. 

Happy Day!
