Thank you Carol!!!
Well Carol, they are really good. :) Hugs back. Chris
Thank you so much Carol for taking out time and giving me suggestions. I can actually see how better it's looking from the original submission. Good Luck to you too :)
Hi Carol, I have changed the font to futura and uploaded a grey version also. Take a look if you have a minute. Thank you so much again for all the suggestions and feedback.
Thank you so much carol for your suggestions on my "twintroducing sweets". I made the changes. Please let me know what do you think
Hi Carol - thank you for your helpful comment! I actually left it like that for voting, it just looks better ha! :) O.O
Thanks so much for your kind words on Speckled Border! It really means a lot to me! I love the lettering on your Rejoice submission... It's fun to design for letterpress :)
Thanks for the comment on my Geo Frost card, Carol! That's exactly what I'm hoping other people will see too =)
Hey Carol. Thanks so much for your comment. I'm still having letterpress issues.... I have white space around the photo, is that still a no no? The box isn't technically overlapping, but maybe it's still to close?
Thank you so much for your comment Carol - it mean so so much to me!!! xx
Hi Carol, thank you very much for liking my "Peace Love and Little Bird" design.
Hey Carol I saw your comment on Jessica's design about not being able to see the design in the poll. This isn't a fix, but looking on your phone or iPad is nice because you can zoom in. Might be helpful until the fix it. They need a magnifying "square" tool like shopping sites use. That'd be really cool! Anyway, just thought I'd chime in. :)
Hi Carol, I did a new poll too based on your suggestions. Let me know what you think if you get a chance. Thanks immensely. I so value your expert advice. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/378576
Sorry Carol, I meant that I like the gray for the names like Kim, but would like to see the gray with foil in any color....actually silver might be lovely.
Carol, thanks for the great feedback! Can I ask what "ghosted" means? I am a novice in this world. :)
I think I missed "Furry Christmas"! ;)
Hi Carol, thank you so much for your comment to help me improve my design, it's look more clean now. Thanks and best of luck of your design.
HI Carol, I just love it that you tend to like designs that are a bit out of the usual. I think you and I are the only ones who like my "Joy Dots." So good to see you in NYC. It was a wonderful trip/party/show.
Hi Carol, thanks for your support on my Swiss corporate holiday card. It is not for everyone but I could resist. Cheers!
Thanks for the sweet comments, Carol. I really appreciate it. I'm loving so many of your recent designs and I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!
Good luck to you too carol!!
Hi Carol, I wanted to thank you again for your suggestions on my "Floral Key". I went ahead and changed the flowers for a colorful version and I'm so happy with my final entry that I couldn't thank you enough! :)
Hi Carol, I have bumped up the weight on the supporting text, played with different colours for the name but went with the lighter colour as it seemed a better balance. I'm really pleased with my entry and it's all thanks to the your suggestions. Can't thank you enough!
Thank you, Carol, for your sweet comment on my Cheerful Rain design! And thanks for all the advice and feedback you've provided :)
Hi Carol, thanks so much for your helpful thoughts! I was feeling that something else needed to be adjusted and you gave me such great suggestions. I really appreciated it! I'll give it a try. Meanwhile, let's try to enjoy this snowy first day of spring :) Cheers!
Hi Carol, I have been sick with a cold and have only got around to making your suggestions now, which I love. Thank you for taking the time to review my entry and for offering should great advise. It so generous of you.
Oh I'm so sorry, I didn't know that there was town by that name,( just amused though )but thank you for the education :) I really like that design,it really has that naive simplicity & the multi colors add more personality :)
Hi Carol, thanks for the great feedback on my "Elegant Move" design. For the color I was going for something classy, but agree with your comment about too somber. Any thoughts on what color; maybe a mint green?
Hi Carol, I have made the changes suggested, if you have time could you have a look. Thanks very much for your input.
Love your input Carol, thank you, I will give it a try.
Aw thank you Carol. I know you meant every word and that makes it very special. thanks so much for always being supportive. xxx

Hi Carol, thank you so much for your suggestion on my NYC wedding invite. I am totally on board but currently struggling to figure out how to execute. Lucky there is a good amount of time to go in the challenge :)
Hi, Carol! Thanks so much for your comment - I get that the circle "crowds" the monogram, but I did it intentionally, so it would be more similar to a cattle brand...that was my intent, anyway... Thanks, again!!!

Thank you Carol for your feedback, I tried a different font and I like it much better.

Hi Carol! Your feedback on my Deckled design just seriously made my week! Thank you so so much for the kind words and taking the time to post them :)
Carol, what a sweet note. You made MY day! So many gorgeous designs once again this year and you have so many great ones! I wish I was going to make it to NSS this year. I had planned on coming but then I moved in December, my grandmother passed away in February and I just didn't get around to planning ahead. I will definitely be there next year no matter what! I would love to meet you and all the other Minties. I imagine it being such an inspirational few days. Have a great time, post pictures and best of luck in the holiday challenge!
Thanks for the thoughtful congrats note Carol, I'm excited too!
Congratulations on your storybook birthday win, Carol!! I love that design. Today kind of got away from us--sorry I didn't get in touch again. I'm looking forward to seeing you at NSS!
Carol, I really want to thank you for giving such great advice on my Greatest Adventure design - I know it wouldn't have won if I hadn't changed the design based on your wise feedback, so thank you for always taking the time to give great constructive feedback! And I am still so so so happy that your book design placed in the top 20! I hope that is the first of many more to come for you :)
Yeah Carol! Great card and a win too! Drinks all around.
THank you for your support, Carol. Congrats on your win too!!
Hi Carol, thanks for your support as always. Cheers, Robin :D
Thanks so much, Carol!!! :) :) :)
Thank you for the helpful comment on my "bold and bright" design. I was trying to figure out what needed adjusting and it was exactly what you said!
Hi Carol! Thank you so much for the very nice comment! Totally made my day!! :)
PS Made the change to the J and started a poll for colors... check it out when you can. Thanks!
Hi Carol! Thanks so much for your feedback on my Joy design. Your comments are always so helpful. I was just thinking of you yesterday... you were one of the first (maybe the first) designers that reached out and gave me some much needed help when I first started submitting designs to Minted. Thank you! Glad to be back. :) Loving your submissions!
Hi Carol! Thanks so much for the help. I do the revision and made another poll. Thanks in advance. :)
I'm glad to see you again and thank you very much for your likes :-) Carol
Thank you Carol! It means a lot!!
No problem Carol! It's true! It's so cute!!! Good luck!
Carol, will you look at my edit for "cake toppers" (just did it so right up front place). Stronger colors from former pastels. Better or worse?
Back at you Carol. Looking forward to seeing you at NSS.
Hey Carol! I meant to tell you yesterday how much I appreciated your helpful advice. I love getting great feedback like that, and you have a great eye for seeing what isn't working and how to fix it. I love it! I was so frustrated because I liked my concept but it wasn't coming together like my sketch, so I value your suggestions! You rock, Carol :)
I'm embarrassed to admit it, Carol... but I might have missed my own win if not for your congratulations! "Verdant Swirl" was awfully far down the alphabetical list of jury's picks... and I totally missed it while skimming the email from Minted on my phone!!! :)
Thanks so much for the head's up, Carol! I was waiting to see when and where it was going to be, so I can figure out logistics with my kids & their activities. Now that I know, I am definitely planning to be there. Looking forward to it!
Ha! I would NEVER want to kill you... you've been ridiculously helpful! You know I actually tried the square shape—thinking it would lend itself better to the design and frame the plate—but it felt very tight..like it had no breathing room. I'll revisit it again, though :) Thanks!!
Thanks for your help, Carol! Really appreciate it.. you were so right about the names getting lost :)
Thanks so much, Carol! Your help made the difference! :)
thanks so much Carol <3...What do you think now? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/138751
Hey Carol, I just wanted to thank you for your encouraging compliment on my wedding design "Wild Ones." That's exactly the kind thing I needed to hear to keep me pushing forward despite the feeling that these kinds of designs wont win. :)
Hi Carol! I think what makes it similar is really just using Veneer in the same wording on top (which you definitely shouldn't change cause it sounds great with the line below!) so maybe if you just chose a different font it would have a much different feel. But if you want to keep it as is then please don't feel you have to change it, I don't mind. Yours appeals specifically to a certain audience and it has a different layout so it's ok to have both submissions in the contest. Thanks so much for checking with me though, I really appreciate it! :)
Here's the other one... http://www.minted.com/design-rating/126261
