HolidaysHolidaysHolidays Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Holiday Card Project Stamp by Heidi Santa Clause HolidaysHolidaysHolidays

Hello all. Dance Cheshire Dance . by SugareeSweets

Let me start by saying once again how I love this community - most of you are incredible artists and genuinely good at heart, I won't get tired of saying this but I'm sure some are really tired of reading this :D
And did you read about the Holiday Card Project?

Holiday Card Project 2012
It's back!  With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

 I support it, of course, and I'm going to participate.
But I was thinking...a few years ago I used to send many Xmas cards to family, friends and clients and received many too, but know emails and phone messages took over the Christmas spirit! I miss receiving those lovely and colourful cards :(
Do you miss them too? Will you join me and share some?
Here's my proposal: anyone sending me a Xmas card will get one back!
Starting from today until the 14th December send to

                               Elsa Gil
                               Rua Sebastião de Lima, 21-2.º
                               2500-277 Caldas da Rainha

a Xmas card, it can be big or small, bought or done by you, simple or sparkling, anything counts!
Give me your address and I'll send one back. Also write anywhere on the card your deviant name so I can feature you here - I will feature everyone who participates and also before Xmas I'll make a draw to give dA subs of 3 months to 4 participants.

Also I want to announce which works participating on my Commission Contest…? I'm going to buy - but if you would like to participate and missed the deadline you have another chance until the end of January 2013 - so, if you like to draw or paint portraits, please do join.

Dear Jana, I got your lovely Xmas card, thank you very much - it's really a precious gift :heart: It's so nice to receive Xmas cards, last few years they disappeared, replaced by emails and text messages, but it's definitely not the same.
I sent you mine today, I hope it gets there soon and that you like it.

Hi, you are more than welcome, I'm glad you liked it :aww:
And I totally agree! I love sending Christmas cards even though I don't usually get any back, people just answer through text message ... So I'm really looking forward to receiving card from you! :tighthug:
And I'm also sorry that the card I've sent you wasn't hand made - I'm not very skilful when it comes to these things :blush:

That's such a lovely idea! But I won't be able to participate in this or the Holiday Card Project because I've got a million exams and I wont have enough time, and it probably wouldn't get there in time as I live in England :(

Well, I live in Portugal, not Australia :D we even share the same time zone...
