That greeting card contest is super fun! I got *really* excited there for a minute because I thought the contest was to find a greeting card WRITER (and I have always wanted to be a greeting card writer…!).

Oh well…I’ll go ahead and pass that link on to a few of my artist friends. Sadly, art is not my forte. ;)
