Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our 2004 Greeting Card Contest - receiving all your cards was great fun! Stop back in a day or two - we will continue to post cards in our gallery for the rest of the week. If your card isn't up here now, it will be soon. We will also be posting instructions for many of the cards later in the week.

Our choice was VERY DIFFICULT. There were many charming, funny, creative, clever, and occasionally eccentric entries and only five prizes available for this round.

We also chose 6 entries for honorable mention - though we would have liked to have chosen many many more for recognition.

All card entries have been resized to fit this page; a few have also been cropped or digitally enhanced in other ways - to better suit this page and our purposes. Our judges made their choice based on the original entries as submitted; many factors were considered.

All decisions are final. Prize packages (store credits) will be sent to winners by email during the week of April 20th. If you are a winner and have not been contacted, please email us.
