Hi Ann! I really appreciate your comment on my deer card, but I have a question for you. I am wondering about the leading - the top font is thirsty soft, and since the letters all connect, wouldn't it look strange to spread it out? Maybe I'm misunderstanding? I'm really new to design so I don't always have my terms right. Thanks so much for your help!

I started a Forum thread about it here: http://www.minted.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=1066&page=1#Item_3 . Just wanted to say I'm on top of it and having it removed!

Ann, I just got your holiday card. Thanks so much. The design is awesome and it was nice to hear a little bit about your life. I'm kicking myself for not including a personal note on mine this year. I've enjoyed reading about everyone else so much. Anyway, wishing you the happiest of holidays!

Hello Ann, thank you for the feedback on my Asian design. I actually redid it entirely and deleted that one and uploaded a new one (Modern Hee). If you have a sec, I'd love some feedback! Thank you! Have a great day and I can't wait to see your submissions. :-)

Ann!!!! You Rock it!!! Thanks so much for the suggestion on my Timeless I do. I have struggled back and forth on We Do and/or I Do so you touched on my only question mark for sure. I really appreciate the feedback and please stop by anytime!!!!

Hi Ann, Thank you, I appreciate you getting back to me. Minted is like a blessing from out of the blue, an opportunity to be involved with the way of designing I am aspiring toward. The first 3 challenges I was way off, but I had fun. For the "Out of the box holiday gift tag challenge" I was way out of the box in a couple of instances, not sure about the others. I feel the concept is just out of reach. Seems I would know this but sometimes things take a little while until I "get it". I'm realizing that the limits and standards of the advertising world I was locked into are still with me; I have design habits. Is there a 12-step group for that? "Hi, I'm Debb W. and I am a bold-advertising design-aholic?" I need a fresh approach and any advice you can give on how to get there is a start. If it would be easier to email me my address is: clearbeautifulday@gmail.com. Again, thank you for your time.

Hi Ann - thank you so much for your feedback. I really love your work and appreciate your advice so much. You are sooo right - it is a bit "spring-like". I don't know if I'll have time to edit it before the deadline (depends on how needy our three-year old is tomorrow), but I will definitely play around with it if I have time. Thanks again :)
