Hi Simone, I was hoping to see your submissions this Challenge! How are you, hope all is well and you've had a great year so far! : )
Hi Simone, It's so great to see your work! Thank you for liking my designs and best of luck in the challenge.
Thanks for the "like" on my card Simone! Your designs are beautiful!!
Thanks for the like Simone all the best in the challenges also.
Hi Simone! Congrats on your wins. And thank you so much to you too for all the good things you did for me. God bless you always.
Thanks Simone! And congrats yourself! You are on a roll with the wins! :)
Congrats on your win !
Congrats on all of your wins, Simone!!! Way to rock it :)
HUGE congrats, Simone - 3 wins, WOW! I think my favorite is Flower Stamp.
Wow, Simone! You cleaned up in the stationery challenge...congrats on your 3 wins!!! My personal favorite is "Retro Hello", but they're all gorgeous!
Simone, you are too sweet! Thank you so much for that high compliment - so undeserving! I'm utterly flattered and humbled!!
Oh, and thanks for liking the new pic (I so hate taking pictures!) ;P
Simone, thank you so much for your sweet comments and continued encouragement and support. It's so awesome to get feedback from such talented peers, as yourself! I really appreciate it! Thanks so much for your feedback on my website, too! Such great info about the affiliate program and creating custom links. My site was down for almost 2 weeks (right after it went live) so I haven't been able to work on the links, yet, but I will definitely get to it. Thanks so much, again! I'm loving your banner designs, btw - along with all your other great work! Super job! Best of luck in all the challenges! Always look forward to seeing your work! :)
Haha! Don't even sweat it Simone! I would never think you stole anything. The font Cyclone isn't exactly a well guarded secret on here anyways. Everyone uses that one. My design is all about that center illustration anyways. :) You got some cool stuff in for this challenge! Hopefully we don't have to wait until next year for the results! ;)
Aww thanks Simone—but you give me too much credit. It was all you girl! Congrats and look forward to seeing more of your designs! :)
So glad to see your Tiki Luau being sold Simone! I was rooting for that one :)
Thanks Simone, I decided to make the almond chocolate oval too, to match the shape of the almond.
Simone!!!! I am such a fan and super thrilled by your wins!
Hi Simone, thanks for your nice comments on my Gem Dandy and Double Feature designs! Good luck to you, too!!
Thanks back at ya, Simone!
Hey, Simone! Just wanted to thank you for your awesome Minted holiday card - your family photo is beautiful, and I love how you added the doggies. Thank you also for your personal note - you are so sweet! Best of luck and happy new year to you, too! :)
Ich möchte unbedingt mal nach San Francisco und dann die Küste runter fahren nach Los Angeles. Also wer weiß, vielleicht besuche ich Dich wirklich mal :-) Ich würde gerne mal Deine Geschichte hören, wie es Dir so ging am Anfang in den USA. Außerdem scheint Dein Leben sehr spannend zu sein, ich habe mir Deine tollen Fotos auf facebook angesehen :-)
Hallo Simone, vielen Dank für Deine Nachricht :-) Deine Designs waren mir auch schon sehr positiv aufgefallen, ich finde sie ganz toll. Ich beneide Dich um Santa Monica, hier bei uns ist es so kalt und nass, ich wünschte ich wäre auch in Kalifornien :-).
Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland
Thanks for the heads up Simone! I emailed Minted too, so we'll see what happens. It's unfortunate tho that things like this still pop up from time to time.
Thanks for the holiday card, Simone. Beautiful shot of your family... is that a wedding photo? Happy new year!
thank you Simone for all your suggestions/helpful comments! :)
hehe - sorry I just really love your cute lil illustration in that one! And yes, hopefully we have time to make tweaks before tomorrow...
thank you Simone for your sweet comment :) I love your Indian Sunset entry and tiki illustration!
Thanks Simone! Keep designing like you are and you'll be up there soon too!
Welcome to Minted Simone! And thank you so much for all your sweet comments! I really appreciate your encouragement and support! You have a lot of great designs, here - best of luck in the challenges! I look forward to seeing more of your work! :)
Thanks so much for the encouragement! Yours are fab, too!
Thanks so much for your input Simone! and welcome! Your designs are BEAUTIFUL!
Thanks for your comment, Simone - and welcome to Minted! :)
Thanks so much for the comment Simone! I just hopped over to your site and I had to come tell you I love your designs. I love vintage travel & advertising, so you had me with that...your poster designs are fabulous, and such a great idea! But passports, boarding passes, luggage tags ...how clever is that? Wow, love it. I'm pretty new here myself, but I'm happy to be the first to welcome you to Minted!
