It is enormously gratifying to read your positive comments about my cat's eye tarot. I am quite flattered that Greyhound felt that sharing a link to the card images she has posted on her own personal web site would be of interest to those of you at aeclectic tarot. I know that there are many very accomplished tarot artists who participate in the forums here. :-)

I have actually been a registered member here for a while now, but I have been a rare poster of messages. I often visit and read the deck reviews and throughly enjoy many of the discussion threads. Frequently any thought I would add to a discussion is expressed so eloquently by one of the many members here, I seldom feel the need to add my two cents worth.

Reading discussions in the deck creation forum, I know that I am not alone in my dreams of completing a personal deck and having that deck receive accolades from those who share my passion for the tarot. To have a copy of my deck produced by a professional publishing house such that I could purchase one for myself, open it for the first time, remove the cellophane wrap ,and feel that glossy quality card stock as I look at each of the images, smell that new card smell.........ummm that would tickle me no end ;-). To have other tarot enthusiasts enjoy the deck also, now there is a lofty ambition.

The outline for a complete deck of 78 cards was created at the outset, and many of the remaining 56 images already exist in my mind's eye and need only make their way to the watercolor paper. I have read the submission guide lines provided by Llewelyn and US games by following the links posted hear. I do believe I will give it a go. (the thread about handling criticism was helpful for building up the confidece to at least try..)

This has become a long thank you, so again thank you for your comments. I shall perhaps become a more active participant on this forum as I seek guidance in this creative pursuit.
