The winners are

I need to think through my contests more carefully! For example, how the heck do I expect myself to pick only 4 winners out of the 63 glorious responses that were posted? I want to send a gift to each and every one of you.

But alas, I cannot. I tried to pick four but had not way to narrow them down. Everyone had very compelling reasons for being interested in this deck, not just “I want to win something.”

It was so happy-making to hear how many of you liked the images, were interested in a non-traditional deck, and, in particular, liked the use of the Book of Shadows as the “Hierophant.” That was one of my favorite inspirations in this project.

The next time I do a contest like this, I think I will have to employ an outside judge.

Consequently, I resorted to a kind of outside judge…a random number generator.

The names selected are:

Ciaran Benson, Mandy Flint, Sherry Padilla, and Eeviee.

Congratulations to you all! And to everyone who entered, thank you! There will be more contests in the future. Not just my projects, but I have a nice collection of tarot-related things that I will use as prizes.

If you have ideas for contests you’d like to see, do let me know. I tend to like ones that include “paying it forward” or “random acts of kindness.” You know, the type of thing that spread good vibes and warm fuzzies out in the world. Because I’m kind of a fluffy bunny like that.

    Congratulations to the winners ^^
    I think that a tarot deck with a dedication made by you is the best gift we can expect… (in my opinion : if I won, I would be wild with joy !)
    I’m waiting for the next contest, I will participate if the theme isn’t too difficult…

    Thanks to everyone for being so kind! I’m pleased to see what a lovely crowd Barbara has following her blog. =]

    Ms. Barbara Moore, thank you so very much! I just recieved my deck today! I was ever so pleasantly shocked to see it waiting for me in my mailbox so soon!

    Just took a quick peak, driving out to the park to get aquainted with it… It is a beautiful deck! Your artists and illustrators have done so well here! Your concepts are beautifully presented!
    I was ever so thrilled to see that it came with a LBW, knowing that the Companion Book is due to be released in September! A wonderful little teaser to get me started! x]

    Cannot wait to get my hands on that book soon, and ever so anxiously awaiting to see what As Below has in store for us!

    Not only has this deck met my expectations, but it has surpassed them! This is the first time that has happened with a new Tarot deck (As Above makes #17)!

    Congratulations, again! I sincerely thank you very much! =]
    Brightest Blessings! <3
