The three winners in my photograph Giveaway are the following:
1st prize is #67 ~ Mental P Mama
2nd prize is #18 ~ Ms. Mediocrity
3rd prize is #66 ~ From Beyond My Kitchen Window
First prize is an 8 x 12 Standout Print; 2nd and 3rd prizes are regular 8 x 12 prints.
I used the number generator at Random.org determine the three winners and went with the results, checking after each to make sure nobody had won anything from me recently. I was so surprised to see Mental P Mama come up because she’s a good friend that I met through blogging. She was one of the first people ever to leave a comment on my blog, back in early January of 2008 and I’m glad to send her the cardinal print standout.
I was also surprised to have it generate the third number, just one integer below first place’s number.
Thank you all for playing, for visiting me, for your heartfelt comments and as ever, your support. Because I wanted everyone to win, here’s a free download for you to use as a desktop background.
I don’t think I’ve ever posted this cardinal before, but I’ve always liked it and it goes with the season ahead of us.

Two other blogs are holding Giveaways right now. Visit Crystal Jigsaw, a blogger from Northumberland, in the UK. I love how beautiful it is where she lives (and she has border collies). And Carla at Jill of All Trades is offering goodies to celebrate her 1,000th post. So check them out. Please feel free to shout out in the comment section if you know of any other Giveaways going on.
Once again, thanks all. You are the best.
