Local artist Bernadette Hocking, colored greeting cards that she purchased from local Downtown Circleville shop Keystone Books and entered them into one of the many Pumpkin Show contests that was held during the popular fall festival.
Bernadette ended up winning first place with her beautifully colored greeting cards, which she placed on display in a unique, rustic door photo frame.
Bernadette stopped into Keystone Books so that employees could see her finished, first prize winning product.
She visited Keystone during the Pumpkin Show back in October 2018 to let them know about winning first place, and she even purchased more greeting cards to color. Her goal is to color these cards, place them in the another rustic door frame and enter her next batch into a contest during the upcoming 113th Pumpkin Show in October 2019.
Good luck, Bernadette!
