    It's that time of year again.....

    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 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!

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Oh me! Pick me! My favorite is also Goldfish. Though Lover's Lane and Autumnal are also lovely.
