I have noticed that I woodwhittlers posts in particular that there are a bunch of anon votes with no name, this leaves me in a real quandary as it is down in the rules that you must leave a name. they way the vote is worded each time I have a feeling it is coming from one person if you are that person contact me and I will consider what can if anything be done.

The first card I want to show you is called "How Flaky" and it was submitted to the swap by Toby. It is a beautiful card and it is unfortunate Blogger can't show you how wonderfully shiny it is.
The next card is called "Snowflake Ornament" and it was created by the very talented Alamocito. The techniques she uses always make for the most wonderfully colourful cards.
This next card is simple in its design but so elegant in its presentation. It is called "Snowflake" and it was submitted to the ring by Whatever. I love it!
We continue on with a more elaborate card by Allemeyn entitled "Winter Wonderland." This card makes excellent use of a number of techniques but the brads really make it pop. Again, Blogger doesn't let you see how shiny this card really is.
The entry from Larva Lady entitled "Almost Celtic Snowflake" is another simple but elegantly beautiful card.
The card sent in by The Frasier 4 is a lovely layered card called "Blue Ice." It is a very pretty card again using multiple techniques. Neknitter has sent in a lovely card entitled "One in a zillion." All I can say is that the one in a zillion that she chose to show us is just beautiful! The texture on this card is really cool.Our next entry is a shiny multi-layered card that is very pretty. The card was submitted by the Shoafsters and is called "Winter Beauty." A beauty it is!
The card I have to show you next is wonderfully colourful and has the fantastic quote on the back, 'A snowflake is winter's butterfly' what a great quote. This card was created by skier4444 and is called "Let it snow!" Amazing colours!
There were so many fabulous cards submitted for this ring that I can't show them all to you but I want to finish up the Winter Snowflakes showcase with one last card. This card is a 3-d look with embossed snowflakes. A very cool card by the ever lovable Happy Gemini who's card is called "Snowflakes."
I hope all you readers will take a minute of your time to let these artists
know in the comment section what wonderful cards they have created.
This card was created for the BOTNANICAL Swap hosted by sojourner.
Traditional boxes received 29 votes making it a winner at 74 %
LTC's received 4 votes for 10%
Postals, Virtuals, and Hitchhikers all received 2 votes each for 5%

The cards themselves are of artwork that is from the books but she has done a great job making this wonderful set of cards from the pictures.
To start with we have Arthur Spiderwick who wrote the the Field Guide to Faeries, although he warned others not to read it.
He was the children's great uncle who disappeared after trying to fool the elves.
Jared Grace is the the main character of the books and from whose point of view that the are written. Jared and Simon are identical twins. He is generally a good boy with leadership qualities but he does have some anger management issues.
He has a talent for creating plans at the most important times.
He didn't want to move to the Spiderwick house and was upset about his father leaving.
Simon is Jared's identical twin. He is a calm, caring pacifist. He adores animals and has many pets, more than his family would like.
His brother Jared thinks that Simon will be either a veterinarian or a lion tamer.
Mallory is Jared and Simon's older sister. She is an avid fencer and Jared thinks she will either grow up to be an Olympic Fencer or be in jail for stabbing someone.
She can be grumpy, but she is a big help with the boy's adventures as her fencing skills are a huge help in defending themselves from the faeries.
Coming in part 2 are some of the creatures from the Spiderwick Chronicles. In
the meantime, you can let Gypsy Ladybug what a great job she has done so far by
letting her know in the comment section.
