View Full Version : It's that time of year again.....

12-06-2011, 07:32 PM
Last year I did a draw for a few cards left in my gallery. This year I have posted 10 cards to my gallery, they are marked 'hold for draw'.

This is in memory of my dad, he passed 10 years ago on December 23rd, also his birthday.

So, if you fancy a card please post here and your name will go in the hat :)

I love your trees and your cottage....and I will gladly do a swap for them! What a sweet idea you have!

12-06-2011, 07:44 PM
I am posting for the draw...I really like so many of them! Into the Woods and Goldfish are especially wonderful...but I would like any!

This is a very sweet idea...and a nice way to remember and honor your Dad!

12-06-2011, 07:49 PM
oh, thanks for joining in. I worry that no one will want them :)

12-06-2011, 08:40 PM
Ooh what fun! I love your cityscape, and all the landscapes :)

12-06-2011, 08:47 PM
I want to join in also....Your work is totally amazing! It took me about 10 minutes to pick a favorite but I think the white trees are my favorite. They evoke memories of beautiful winters before I moved to the coast 30 years ago.

12-06-2011, 08:48 PM
They're gorgeous! What a lovely and generous idea.

12-06-2011, 08:53 PM
I didn't try to pick a favourite, so went back to have another look. Closest I can get, is the row that starts with Lovers Lane and ends with Goldfish. If I'm lucky enough to be drawn, I'll be happy with whichever one I get.

12-06-2011, 10:01 PM
If I post a bunch of times, can I get a bunch of cards?? LOL ;)
I love the sunset silhouette and the woman shopper...and all the others but those are my faves.

What a lovely way to honor your dad. I seem always to be putting in a lone bird or a lone leaf or a single something or other into my cards for my dad. It will be two years Dec. 28 for me, I will be thinking of you Dec. 23, Janet...

12-07-2011, 04:05 AM
I would be thrilled to win any of those beautiful cards, if you are doing a "list", I think that Sunset silhouette and Lonely cottage are particularly great.

Your idea of doing a memory series is such a lovely way to honor your dad. :)

12-07-2011, 08:59 AM
Your cards are simply wonderful! I would be honored to have one in my collection! Thank you for doing this.

12-07-2011, 11:26 AM
What a great idea! Id love to try my luck

12-07-2011, 06:52 PM
Put my name in please.......My Dad's birthday was December 21st......miss him.
My avatar is his picture.

12-08-2011, 12:04 AM
All your cards are beautiful, Janet! I especially like White Trees but would be thrilled to have any one of them. Please put me in the draw...what a generous and thoughtful idea!

I also lost my dad this time of year and burn an annual memorial candle in his honor.

12-08-2011, 09:48 AM
Thank you all for joining in. We have to focus on our happy memories of course, but it's a hard time of year for so many.

12-08-2011, 09:49 AM
I would love to be in your draw please,and think of my Daddy often too- he has been gone 30 years now. Sigh.

12-08-2011, 10:03 AM
That's an awesome tribute, your art is great. Please could you add me to the draw?

12-08-2011, 10:33 AM
Oh me! Pick me! My favorite is also Goldfish. Though Lover's Lane and Autumnal are also lovely.

12-08-2011, 07:53 PM
Would love to be in the draw and what an awesome tribute to your Dad. Must have been a very special person.

How generous of you! I would be honored to receive a card in memory of your Dad......(.as would any one of our ATC memebers)..........:)

May every joy be yours this Christmas and throughout the year.....

12-14-2011, 10:04 PM
Janet, I'd like to be in the draw, too. Your ATCs are wonderful & what an awesome way to remember your dad. The holidays are always a rough time to lose someone.

12-14-2011, 11:22 PM
That is a very nice thing to do!
My faves are City on the River and Spent Up but I would be happy with any of them!

12-15-2011, 12:18 PM
Thank you for kind comments. All welcome :)

12-15-2011, 08:42 PM
Janet this is such a lovely tribute to your Dad. I would love to be part of your draw. My favourites are sunset, autumnal and white trees; but really any card would be special.

12-15-2011, 09:16 PM
Now this thread has been moved from 'Lounge' to 'Trades', I should make it clear that there is no trade involved at all.

Nothing is expected from anyone taking part. When I draw the names I will post to the thread and get addresses. Cards will be posted after Christmas, to avoid the usual hold ups.

No itrader required. A pm would be nice to say 'received'. If any cards aren't received, I will make sure another one gets to you. :)

12-15-2011, 10:50 PM
they are all so beautiful... Put me in.. I hope to win something one day...lol

12-17-2011, 10:49 AM
Your cards are lovely, please include me.

Am I too late?

12-21-2011, 09:28 PM
Am I too late?

No, you're in. Will be drawing it tomorrow :)

12-21-2011, 09:51 PM
Please add me too. What a wonderful tribute to your Dad.

12-22-2011, 04:13 PM
Drawn a few hours earlier than I expected. I'm feeling a bit rough with cold and sore throat so I may be in bed early tonight.

These are the names that came out

Janet - Thank you so much for the gorgeous card! My son practically ripped it out of my hand to get a better look at it. And both sides were equally stunning, I do good to get one side looking the way I want!

01-05-2012, 11:50 AM
Janet, my beautiful card arrived!

Thank you so much! I can't wait for my daughter and hubby to get home tonight so I can show it to them.

01-07-2012, 07:43 PM
Today I received the beautiful card that you chose for me. It's wonderful thank you.
