Design Contest: World’s Best Dad!

May 24, 2012

Father’s Day is around the corner (June 17 this year), so let’s do Design Contest: World’s Best Dad!

Post a link to your Father’s Day card on GCU in the comments of this post. On May 31, I’ll post all the nominees and open the voting, which will commence until June 7. On June 8, I’ll announce the winner, who will receive their choice of prize: a $10 Amazon.com certificate or 5 free card credits.

BONUS
Artists will have TWICE the opportunity to win this time around! Nominate your own card + you can nominate another artist’s card too. If the artist you nominated gets the most votes, BOTH OF YOU will receive a prize. How’s that for fun? 🙂

Now show us your best work, and good luck to all our participating artists!

    And might I suggest that we each create a page on our websites or blog listing with a link to the artists that participate. I will be posting all the entries to http://www.FrankzPawPrintz. If anyone else wants to join in, just post your web address also and I will add it to my website!

    Being a painter, I usually zero illustrated cards. I really like this painting by N. Needham…http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/collections/outdoors-landscapes/scenery-and-nature/fathers-day-friend-boat-on-385709

    Here is my Father’s Day Card… It’s not one of my illustrations, but an old photo of my father, who passed away in January 2000, holding my younger sister Fran in his hand..I have always loved this photo and made it into a Father’s Day card…. I only wish my dad was here to see it.

      I’m getting a blank card when I click on A True Reflection! Can anyone else see it?

        I also got a blank card but thought it was just my computer so I viewed via the ‘front’ larger view icon. Thanks Renae, I’ll put a report in to GCU. I purchased one of your cards at Mother’s Day (would have been a sale from Ontario, Canada) – it was beautiful!

        WoW! Lisa, That is really a compliment…to have another artist purchase one of my cards. Thank you so much!
