Erin McGuire is the Grand Prize Queen. The people have spoken.

It was a tight battle with a close finish and the happiest of endings for the talented Ms. McGuire. We received over 75,000 votes, 34% of which went for Erin's "Delivery".

Aside from all the happy and deserved attention coming Erin's way, we'll also be awarding her the grand prize cash - and donating the same amount in her name to the Global Fund, (RED)'s partner in the battle against AIDS in Africa.

Her card will remain on sale on our website for a whole year. (A portion of all of the contests' card sales are going straight to the Global Fund -- their cards are still for sale until the end of Feb.)

What else can we say, other than WELL DONE, Erin. Thanks for sharing your talent with the world.

World, how about a round of applause for Ms. McGuire?

Congratulations Erin! I loved your card design. It had an appealing innocent appeal to it. Good job!

Congratulations, Erin. Love the design of your card. Great cause too, the Global Fund. Hope to see more from you. How you went from 28% to 34% of the votes in the last few hours was amazing. And...weird. :-O
