    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.

    One of the things that has slowed me down with swapping, is the exorbitant postage charges from Australia. It has become very expensive for me, and money is tight. Thanks for your kind words tho'.
    Regards, Jo

    Certainly! I enjoy seeing your contest entries, too, Joarty; I think we all do as proven by your contest wins! You do beautiful work. I just wish we had opportunity to enjoy it in the trading and swap galleries as well as the contests. Postage is forcing a lot of us limit our swapping and trading; personally, I haven't joined a swap (cheaper than trading!) for several months, so I understand that. I hope to either host or swap again in the New Year.

    Thanks all for your endorsements. I've had a pretty difficult year this year and have dropped a lot of my usual art activities. Hoping 2018 sees more participation. Have a wonderful Xmas....see you in the New Year.
