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

Amy, congrats on your #2 win for the holiday challenge!!! Enjoy the win - it's a great card : )
Hi Amy, Thank you. I appreciate your time and insights. Wow, I almost didn't recognize you without your mustache!!!
Hi Amy, congratulations on your notebook win! Have you been with Minted from the beginning? I'm new but I am beginning to understand that not all designs are Minted designs. What do you think? Thanks, and I love your creations.
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!
Thanks Amy :) I've learned a lot since I first joined - I had to try and catch up with all of you guys!
I'm new to minted, but wanted to let you know I love all your designs. You are truly talented, no wonder you've won so many awards!
Hi Amy, just wanted to congratulate you on your notebook win! And, also to thank you for the mentor pick for the birth announcement challenge :) Can't wait to see your wedding entries!
I love your work and your new picture. Nice.
being new to minted, i've been doing a lot of browsing around and i absolutely love your entire portfolio! you are very talented!
YaY! Hello and thank you for the font list. That was very nice of you to include where to find them.
oops, me again. I pulled my design before noting your recommendations. Lower the initial and ???
Amy, You said just what I needed to hear. I couldn't bear to look at any more florals either but I had this one waiting in the wings...I'm going to pull it and work on it. Thanks again for the candid advice.
I think this was good idea, it looks compact now.... thank you very much for your help :-)
thanks for your feedback on "asymmetrical snowflake"! i agree there's a better place for the snowflake ... i will try to re-purpose it some other time. my brain is mush right now! cheers :)
Hi! Thanks for the feedback on my design - I couldn't get the full bleed to work - but the frame detail I think adds what was missing. I love your work and very much appreciate your feedback :)
Hi Amy! Thank you so much for the help, I needed it very much. The design is okey now or need more adjustments?
Colorado is a great place to live - I was in the Denver area for a couple of years and loved it, too!
Hope you are enjoying Colorado! Wish we could have had another meetup before you left. I bet your family will become expert skiers! Also, great profile pic :)
Hi Amy! I am still a bit of a newbie on Minted. I saw that you are a mentor and I would love for you to give me feedback on my birth announcement design. Thanks so very much (I hope this is the correct place to ask).
(Like everybody else) I love the new pic. You are sooo adorable. Please move to Iowa instead of Colorado.
Love your new photo! I see I'm not the first one to notice!! super fun! We've all missed you so much. Glad to see you back for this challenge!
love your new profile pic! cracked up when i saw it.
your new photo is hilarious!
Hey Amy!! Love your new minted photo. Makes me smile!
Hiya! I've been in hiding. ;) Apparently a newborn and designing for minted didn't really mix!
Hi amy! I already submitted the revision..hoping it is better, what do you think? I need your suggestions again..thanks very much..
Hi amy! Many thanks to you for the comment.I'm laughing aloud about my reindeer, I'm imagining something about the swirl in front and back of my reindeer (lolzz). Yeah will do the changes and make some experiment to make it simpler. Thank again! God Bless You always..
Sooooooooo great to meet you. I wish i could've spent more time with you and Tina.
Amy! It was so wonderful to finally meet you! I hope to see you and Tina again next year!! Best wishes on your move!
Thank you for the suggestions- very helpful- I am not a great illustrator but I have to step my game up with you all! i love all your designs btw- you rock!
Hi Amy, Just noticed on a forum that you had listed links to many of the fonts on your blog - incredibly helpful! When I started searching for some of the fonts earlier, my ADD (undiagnosed, typical side effect of being a mom) would kick in and I would get lost in type world. I want to improve my typography- will be following your blog to get better! Great blog. Don't know how you are getting so much done!
Thanks, Amy! I had missed that.
Denver, eh? I grew up there, I hope you love it!
Amy - you do beautiful work! Thank you so much for the feedback you gave on my "global warming" card. I've made changes - hopefully for the better!
Amy - your creative juices are being missed! Hope to see more of you soon!
