Thank You x 288

My Grey Hare Birthday Card won the Storque Birthday Card voting poll with 288 votes!

I had been ever mindful of the Aesop Fable - The Tortoise and the Hare, especially when I woke up today to see the 2nd place contestant Pup and Pony gain 50+ votes overnight to my 8!

Priceless was concerned because I was acting tetchy, pacing the room, refreshing my browser (even though it doesn't need to be refreshed!), sweating and generally fretting!

The grey hares were concerned too!

They all reminded me that it was merely a game.

So as a BIG thank you I shall be having a prize draw for one of these custom made cards - all the people whom I know voted for me will be entered automatically and if you did vote but didn't tell me - then please send me an etsy convo or leave a comment here.

Anyone else is also very welcome to enter - just leave a comment.

The draw will be done by my rescue rabbit Wesley in about a weeks time since it is his rabbit rescue The Rabbit and Guinea Pig Welfare that is being helped from the sale of these cards.

Perhaps Arabella will be making a draw too? After all there are no losers :)

Thank you as well to my Etsy For Animals Team and to etsy!

  9. Well, I kept wondering why you said the votes happened "overnight" but just realized- You're in Scotland!!!! How did that bit of information escape me this week? Well, needless to say, I did not vote for the "Grey Hares", but may have grown a few this week :) and had a great time.
