Thanks for the suggestion about the blue box behind the names in my design, Amy! Was a little tricky trying to visualize how it would work with different length names, but I think what I've got is an improvement. Appreciate the feedback!
Awww. Thank you for the sweet comment! It means a lot coming from you - a Minted rock star! :)
Hi Amy thank you very much for your like and great suggestions!! I will give all of them a try. I'm still working on the changes for the suggestions you gave me on my other design. Once again thank you very much for taking the time to comment on my work. I really appreciate your suggestions they are so right on… as soon as I read them I'm like "I totally see that now" :)
Amy - I really appreciate your comments on my design! It was very constructive and help my design tremendously. I cannot thank you enough. (And your minted work is stunning!)
Hi Amy! Thanks so much for your thoughtful suggestion on my "Joy Sprig" design. I added another sprig - would love to hear if you think it's an improvement if you have a minute!
Amy, thanks SO much for your suggestions on my designs. I appreciate it so much!!!
Amy, I just have to tell you that you write the very best comments. Always thoughtful feedback and really good ideas. You know your stuff. :)
Thank you for your suggestion, Amy! Thanks!! <3
You are the sweetest, Amy! I am a huge fan of your work, too. xoxo
Thanks for all your helpful suggestions this challenge, Amy! I've substituted a new font in Jubilee Garlands since Bodoni doesn't come in a lighter weight. Would you please let me know what you think? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/372188
Thanks for the font suggestion on Expressive Joy - I think I'm going with a simpler one :)
Hi Amy! Thank you very much for the help. I did use the foil for the leaves and it's very nice. Foil is very pretty and I'm starting to like using into the design. :) Many thanks to you.
Hi Amy thank you again! I changed the font... I always struggle with type.
I love that you are self taught and are so amazing with type, it gives me hope that one day I too will improve!! I will work on the pinecones and give it a try I love that idea! Thank you again very much :)
Hi Amy thank you so much for taking another look.. I'm glad you like the changes!
Love the idea of bright! Thanks for all your help!!!!!
Hi Amy, thanks again and quick question on "white and wonderful". Do you think the year divided with the snowflake is working, or would you eliminate the snowflake? Your feedback is greatly appreciated. (LOL, my husband is yelling for me to start cooking dinner!)
THANKS for the suggestion on nixing the die-cut on "Merrily Ever After" :) I went with your advice!
Hi Amy, THANK YOU for pointing out an issue that I overlooked regarding printing concerns with foil! Much appreciated. BTW, your work is stunning!!
I'm glad the photos were speaking to you. All I was hearing from them was "nope." :) Thanks for the suggestions!
Thanks for your suggestion Amy. I'm wondering about submitting both designs. I've read where Minted asks that you not submit multiples of the same design with minor changes. Would it be an issue if I submitted both or are they different enough? Thanks again!
Hi Amy thank you very much for the great suggestion on my design I will give it a try. Your work is amazing!
Thanks, Amy, for your constructive feedback, I love hearing from you! ;)
Thanks for all of your feedback this last week Amy! It's been very helpful. I had some time just now to updated my cocktail digital invite and would like to get your opinion if you have time. Thanks http://www.minted.com/design-rating/368606
Thanks Amy for your feedback! I will try both and re-submit!
Yes, quicksand! Thanks for the suggestion, Amy. I think it works much better now :)
Thank you so much for your feedback on my "Merry Year" design! I have updated the poll based on your tips! :)
Thanks so much for your feedback! I myself liked the "B" better, but was torn between the two! Thanks again! Really appreciate it :)
You have some really awesome designs.
thanks so much Amy for the like and you are an amazing person and designer and artist who knows how to bring up and ground us minties also .

Thanks for your comment on my bonfire invite!! Do you think I should make the size of the top text larger or just make it all caps to make it more readable? I appreciate your opinion, thank you!!
Thanks SO much for you comment Amy! Love your work and value your opinion. Will you be at NSS this weekend? If not, I hope we'll meet in Denver sometime when I'm visiting family.

I've been meaning to tell you that I miss your presence in the minted community! I know you must be super busy with your kitchen reno, but I just wanted you to know that you are missed and I hope you are doing well! :)
Thanks again, Amy. How is looking to you now?
Hi Amy, you gave me some great feedback about the type being too tight on my design "On the Wild Side". If you have a minute, could you please take another look and let me know how it looks to you now? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/265547

Hi Amy - thank you so much for your suggestion on my Comin'Down the Mountain card. Would you mind taking another look? I changed it to portrait - but not the tag die cut. What do you think? Better? I feel like it still might be missing something. Thx! :o)
lolzzz Amy! It makes me laugh what you said. But you're right.Thanks so much again for the help, I already change
Thanks so much Amy for the great feedback and help. Yeah, I did the revision as you said and you're very correct. I attached also some variation if what looks good. What do you think? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/92117

Thanks Amy! Congrats to you too. I must say I was over the moon yesterday as I stumbled onto the blog and saw my Sweet Stork got an award. Then saw your comment on Fresh Flowers and was scratching my head until I went back to the blog today! Yeah!
