show thank you note preview
Yay for us Little Birdy ;), love your wins!
Thank you! Congrats on your winner and ed picks! Your save the dates were just gorgeous across the board :)
Leanda thank you so much and congrats as well to you for your 3 wins. They were great entries!
Thank you so much, Leanda!:)
Congrats on the room decor win! I love the racing theme on your design. Having two car-obsessed little boys, I can see that design selling like crazy. It feels good to be newly Minted with such good company :)
You know how to make a girl blush!! Thank you so much for your sweet comment–you are such a talent and I'm so happy you joined the Minted Community!
Leanda, thanks for the sweet comment. I hope they don't all start to look alike. :)
Thanks for your kind comment, Leanda. I am loving all your save the date submissions!
Thanks for a kind comment, Leanda! Yay.
Thanks, Leanda. And thanks for your help improving my paper cut-out design.
omg, tell me about it!!! First my date looked like a raisin. Then a walnut. Then a potato with a stem. I think it's now as date-like as I can get it, but still hit or miss!
Hi Leanda, Thanks for your comment on my crossed arrows design. I'm unsure about that design. I wonder if it is too centered. Everything is so symmetrical and then centered. What do you think? Thanks. I really value your feedback because I think you are an amazingly talented designer :-) I admire your attention to detail and how polished your designs always look.
hi Leanda, thanks for your comments on my weathervane love design! there's actually 5 choices, [the last one does have the sun behind the vane], and I have to say that it's been hard to decide which way to go, but I think I'm getting close! just thankful for everyone's input!
You are too sweet! Alrighty...the combo is up;) Would love to know your thoughts if you think it works or too busy. Thanks a million:) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/107889
Hi Leanda. Thanks for your comments on my papercut design. I know it has "issues." I was actually planning to go back to it and do a more authentic cut paper version, but then I saw that you had done that with your "intricate cut paper design," which is beautiful. Initially I intended to do something very different, but I couldn't get the colors to work. I'll probably go back and try to re-work my original idea.
Ha, thanks for your advice! I'll try the combo tonight:) Btw I am in love with your paper cut submission. So very clever...and beautiful!
Hi Leanda! I just wanted to thank you for your kind comments! They are always the sweetest and make my day!
Aww, Leanda just saw your comment from the other day, thanks for that! I adore your work too!!! Love your illustrations!
Thanks Leanda for the comments about In my Heart design, it looks so much better with changes you suggested! cheers.
It's up, but not very fancy...just two options chevron or stripes...haha ;) Thanks! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/106388
Thanks, Leanda! I tried it with a few plain-ish backgrounds but wasn't loving it. It's definitely a work in progress so I appreciate your feedback. Maybe a poll soon with some more background options hehe;) Thanks again:)
thanks Leanda - let me know what you think :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/106299
hi Leanda, thanks for your thoughtful comments on my now come together design. still trying to decide which way to go! must be an optical illusion on the centering. but thanks for keeping me on my toes! appreciate it!!
Thank you for the sweet comment, Leanda!!
Dear Leanda, Thank you for your comment. I did what you suggested and the card is looking much better!!! Thanks!:)
Thanks for the help with the drop shadow. I never even noticed it wasn't in the hole punch :)
Thanks girl! I dis submit the illo on its own. I tried to. Add to it a bit but it was getting to be too much. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/105853?filter=all&sort=createat. Thanks again!
Welcome! I really love your illustration style.
what a nice comment, thank you! :)
Thank you Leanda! So nice of you to say, especially today as Im not having a very confident designer day. btw - stoked for you on your awesome win!!
huge congrats to you, leanda! :) i love that print
Thank you so much for your kind words! You just made my day!! Here I am struggling to get creative, and you may have just helped me over that slump. You're work is pretty great too. My kitchen could really benefit from your Cherry Pie art print :)
Thank you Leanda for the lovely comments :) your speed freak is spot on perfect! Love it! :)
Thank you for your comment Leanda!
Leanda thank you so much. I have to say that I so admire your work. You are a true artist! Chris
thanks for your feedback leanda. im thinking i should remove the photos all together and put the name inside the wreath or something. it seems like the photo is ruining the delicacy im going for.
Hi again Leanda,
Apologies for the late reply, but thanks for getting back to me again on my hot dog entry--I really appreciate your help!
PS Love your work!!!
Hi Leanda, thank you so much for your lovely comment for my golden christmas design :)
Hi Leanda--thanks for your kind words and suggestions for my hot dog entry! If you have a second, I would love it if you could let me know what you think of the changes.
Leanda, thank you so much for your sweet comment! Right back at you... I only wish I had the illustration skills that you do:) Your work is amazing!
Aw Leanda, what a really nice comment, thank you! I love your illustrations -- and that Cherry Pie poster is DEE-LICIOUS! Keep up the awesome work!! :)
Thank you for your wonderful feedback on my stationery design! Moving the stripes to the backer was a great idea and making the greeting smaller helped a lot. I think it is so much tighter now. Good luck in all you do!
Hi Leanda, thank you for nice comment on my crab house stationery design. I am just learning how to use textured artwork to create these types of effects, they add depth to flat surfaces. I am moving out of my corporate design comfort zone into the Minted stationery world, I love it. So more more fun. I love forward to see more of your work. Cheers, Robin
Hi Leanda, I absolutely love your "all aboard" illustration. I also visited your website - you have a great style and so much talent - amazing work!
Hi Leanda, my pleasure! I hope was some help! Please feel free to comment on any of mine as well. This is a give and take community.
Thanks for your comments on my "festive baby mobile" design:) The first option "a" is for the "no words on the front" category (one of the editor-selected prizes). I'd love to know which you prefer. Thanks again, really appreciate it!
Hi Leanda! I just wanted to stop by and say that I pinned your amazing Cherry Pie poster before I ever knew it was on Minted. When I saw it on here, I was so excited that I was in the same awesome designer club as the brilliant creator of that poster :)
Hi again! "Liking" a design does 3 things, it lets the designer know you like their design, it lets other designers gauge how popular a design might be by seeing how many likes it has, and it gives the person doing the liking the ability to track their favorite designs during the voting process (meaning that during the period of time that voting is going on, you can sort designs by 'your favorites' as well as by designer or most recently submitted, etc.) I hope that makes sense.
Voting means actually scoring the designs. Although the term voting is not really appropriate. A better term would be rating. During the time voting is open, designers and minted customers can come and rate as few or many of the designs as they wish/have time for. Many designers feel obligated to rate all of the designs in any competition they enter, but that's up to you. The top 20 designs from any competition are automatically made available for sale on minted. In addition, Minted will choose many more designs to sell. How long voting will be open, and how long until winners are announced is always a mystery!
Your Cherry Pie entry is lovely. Good luck!
I absolutely love your Cherry Pie Art Print. A favorite of mine! And welcome to minted!
Oops, should have checked first - looks like you got it!
I would just add in an updated version of your design. The original will still be there (it will become smaller, and your new version will take it's place) that way you will keep your Likes.
Hi Leandra, very fun design! to submit an edited version, simply go to "my design studio", click on "manage your collection", then click on "edit" under your design. You will have the choice to take it down and resubmit (all comments and 'likes' will be lost, or to upload an edited version. Hope that helps!
