Okay, I've messed with these clouds too many times. This is it - these are the same shape clouds as in Version 9 (the one with all the comments and most of the likes). Thanks for all the great feedback!

I totally agree with what Carol Fazio said. I think I do like this version a lot better than the heart one. :)

Kim, I like the look of the one you now have posted over the heart. The heart was a good idea, but I think this execution looks more organic and doesn't outshine the baby drop.

I agree, Lori - I'm torn, too, and for the same reason. The heart is actually part of the clouds, each cloud has have of a heart "bump," and they overlap still, but I'm not sure it's as obvious as it was before...Opinions/preferences welcome!!! Thanks!

Hi Kim! You know what - I'm kind of torn. I kind of like the heart because it gives it a cleaner look, but I also liked your version because it looks like the clouds are actually overlapping. With the heart, it kind of looks like it was just placed over the two clouds, and not that it was formed by the two clouds overlapping. So, it's totally up to you. You're right, though, the original design was already well-liked, so maybe you should go with your original. And hopefully, some of the other Minties that have already "liked" the original can let you know which version they like better. Sorry to have made things difficult for you :( Either way, I still think your design is great, and it'll get a high rating from me, whichever version you choose! :)

Okay - I've fixed the heart from the one previously uploaded in the comments section (I deleted that image). I think I am liking this heart version - thanks, again, to Lori for the suggestion. Any other opinions - this or Version 12???? I hate to mess with something that's already well-liked, but hopefully this is an improvement...

this version prints close to what Version 9 looked like on-screen...(the names were getting lost in print of Version 9).

Per Lori's suggestion below, I've made a version in which the clouds overlap to form a heart (see attached image) - any opinions on this? I don't see a way to do it without the additional overlap above the heart (and still have the clouds look cute and fluffy). Preferences? If you DO like the heart version best, please let me know if you think the heart is heart-shaped enough - I was trying to maintain the integrity of the clouds...

Oh, that's so cute, Kim! Colors are great + love that little curl on top of the raindrop! What if the part of the clouds that overlaps + surrounds the "&" formed a heart? Just a suggestion, though. Really cute design! :)
