297 is exquisite!

Laila September 6, 2017 at 1:45 pm

I am stunned by the level of talent. Some leave me wondering if they are photos or paintings.

Tina September 6, 2017 at 1:46 pm

These are incredible. The cat with the tree is really something.

Lois September 8, 2017 at 1:44 pm

The photo of the hydrangea is gorgeous! You really should do a box of all flowers on the front of the cards, all blank inside.

Tracy September 8, 2017 at 1:46 pm

I wish that picture of the bird was close up. I love birds and butterflies and they make such cheerful cards.

Rene September 8, 2017 at 1:48 pm

I look forward to seeing the new crop of finalists for the scholarship contest. You get some professional looking entries. Good luck to all!

Kendra September 8, 2017 at 3:18 pm

Ok, I have 2 favorites. Definitely that cute little bird on a reed and that super colorful flower. Such a great close-up of the petals!

Ruthanne September 8, 2017 at 3:19 pm

I admire all the talent your scholarship entrants have shown through the years. I wish them all the best of luck in the contest and in the future.

Helen September 8, 2017 at 3:28 pm

I guess I’m sentimental because I love the drawing of the toys. Reminds me of toys in the attic when I was a little girl. Very appropriate for Christmas.

I just started the school year as an art teacher in a middle school. Too bad my students are too young to enter the scholarship contest. I will mention it to them in case you’re still running it when they get to high school.

My vote is for the card with the nutcracker looking sort of guy & of course the cat.
Who doesn’t love pet cards/photos.

Elaine September 12, 2017 at 3:42 pm

Please pick that beautiful flower as a winner. It’s so colorful and cheerful!

Joy September 12, 2017 at 4:09 pm

It’s such a pleasure to see students participate in your scholarship contest. Even students who don’t plan on having a career in art can try to win. That’s very fair.

I came here from Hungary over 40 years ago and I am still amazed at the generosity of the people here. Your company is a wonderful example of giving young people a helping hand.

Ajanaye Fleming September 13, 2017 at 1:18 pm

Wow, these are all amazing! Best of luck to all participants and to the judges for their difficult decision.

Jackie September 14, 2017 at 1:17 pm

The photo of the flower is really done well. You can see the drops of dew on the petals. I think that’s a winner for a get well card or a blank note card.

Mason September 15, 2017 at 12:30 pm

I have a favorite but I don’t want to tell. I’ll vote instead of revealing it. I am looking forward to seeing the Round 3 winners.

Jan September 15, 2017 at 12:32 pm

That one picture with the wild sky gave me an idea. What if you did a box of nature scenes, photos of sunsets, clouds, etc. That would make a nice assortment box.

Ginger September 15, 2017 at 12:35 pm

I’ll be so glad to see the winner’s card next year on your website. I hope it’ll be one of the cards I voted for. I’d like to see a new card with lots of red & green & gold on it.

Susan September 18, 2017 at 3:40 pm

That toy soldier card is really stunning. It would certainly stand out on black paper. And toy soldiers are a traditional decoration for the holidays, as much as toy trains and gingerbread cookies.

Joy September 18, 2017 at 3:42 pm

I like the elegant Xmas tree in the window entry. With all the white lights on the tree it lights up that corner of the room for sure.

Carolyn September 20, 2017 at 9:50 am

The photo of the toy soldier is just the best. My kids have gone to see the tree in NYC for years and the holiday lights make it a wonderland for them. I vote for that photo to win.

Jesse September 20, 2017 at 9:53 am

Coming from horse country in Kentucky I have to favor the drawing of the horse. I give credit to all the young artists who enter and wish them all good luck.

Curtis October 9, 2017 at 1:01 pm

barn photo. the lighting on that looks really great.

Berta October 9, 2017 at 1:05 pm

Astounding talent! The art is extraordinary. Great work everyone! And good luck!

CJ October 9, 2017 at 1:06 pm

I am a big fan of photography. Looks like a lot of talented photographers are in the running this year.

Kenny October 9, 2017 at 1:09 pm

That cat really looks in awe. Or scared!

Dolly October 12, 2017 at 10:11 am

I love seeing all the different card ideas. It is great to see talent in young people.

Kim October 26, 2017 at 3:30 pm

I love 300 – it sets a peaceful homey Christmas scene.

Jana February 15, 2018 at 2:56 pm

I really like 257 with the round tree and bright colors! So many talented artist! Good luck to all!
