<P>So,&nbsp;yeah, we lost the Hallmark card thing. blah. We took 4th place. not too shabby, but not first all the same. lol I always said if we didn't win, it was still a great experience (doesn't everyone say that?) and is WAS - we got a cool card out of it with my daughter's face gracing thousands of mantles and tables this past mother's day - pretty darn cool. :)</P> <P>I just want to say a HUGE thank you to all of you for the support and big love with Avie's card - you guys ROCK!!!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P>

    Consider yourself a winner! The Japanese has a saying they normally quote to each other in the form of "Gambatte!" They will enter a race and give it their best even if the odds are against them. The both of you have performed exceptionally well; be resilient in moving forward. "Gambatte!" ~Joseph

    It was a wonderful card and brought smiles to so many mothers this year. I am sad to hear you didn't win but fourth is pretty awesome out of so many entries. Congratulations on that. You still have my support and best wishes for continued success. Smiles from Lolita
