    Congrats to the winners! I'm curious if the second one is a digital photoshopped photo? It's lovely.

    Thanks for the feedback...very kind. Yes, it's a photo of my zygocactus that has been thoroughly photoshopped. Lots of layers and filters.

    Digital art is always welcome in our contests. As I work digitally myself, I appreciate the time, effort, skill, and creativity that goes into a piece of digital work. I really liked the two winning pieces done in two different media. Congratulations to you both!

    Congratulations to chilibibi abd Joarty1! Jo, why not do some private trades and join some swaps? There's so much more to AFA than the contest!

    I have been swapping for years with other groups, now I have SO many ATCs in albums that I've given up swapping except for one or two here and there. We'll see how it goes in the New year.

    I'm sorry to hear that you only take part in the contests here, rather than swapping and trading and joining in the fun. You're very talented, I see by your many wins. I'm sure you have a lot to share with our members, so I hope in the New Year we'll be seeing lots of your beautiful work for trade and swap.
