Thanks, Nazia for the suggestions. I've been thinking exactly what you suggested, but seem to be having designers block ;) I tried it inversed with white bkg and darker text, but then the text was overpowering...i'll try again tomorrow!
Hi Nazia, Thank you so much for the warm welcome! I loved your suggestions and yes they did make sense. I really appreciate your feedback. I just created a new poll with some changes. Thank you again. Your designs are gorgeous! ~ Paula
Thanks, Nazia, for the suggestions. I have that on my to do list for today actually as Christ made a suggestion too. Just noticed your London Royal Guard design - LOVE!!
Thankyou so much for your kind comment on my inky blue design...i must admit i am a novice with font use...so thanks so much for your tips! much appreciated :-)

Nazia, thanks so much for you like of my merry with dots submission in the letterpress challenge. It has been some time since I used my computer to create artwork. I have been spending most of my creative time doing small watercolors for the last decade, selling a few on line and locally. When I found minted I was intrigued. Love your color palettes such bold work, very nice. Best of luck with all your entries in the various challenges. - Corinne
Hi Nazia, thank you for the like on my "Joyful Season" card! Your designs are beautiful and very inspiring to me!
Thank you Nazia for your comment on my submission ' fun type'. the alphabets forming the word holiday party is non-personalisable, hence it has foiled elements. But, thank you for taking time out to explain. Much appreciated and all the best for the challenge :-)
Hi Nazia! Thank you so much for the likes. Good luck in the challenge! : )
Thank you so much for your like on my Thanksgiving invite.
You have wonderful work. Great to get to know you on the minted website.
Thank you Nazia for your 'likes'! You have some lovely designs, and I wish you the best of luck in the challenges!
Thanks so much for your like of my new year challenge submission. Good luck with the challenge! - Corinne
Thanks so much for the like Nazia! I love your NY and holiday submissions :) Best wishes for picks!
Thanks for the like Nazia – I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of glad to not be thinking of Christmas/New Years this weekend :) Hope you have a good one!
Nazia, thank you for the like on my entry "Stars and Diamonds", best of lick with the challenges!
Hi Nazia, first, I've been following your holiday collection and it's one of my favorites this year! I'm rooting for you to get the collection award! Second, thank you for taking the time to comment on my Record Year entry. And yes, the struggle is so real to try and get the record to not look like a giant blob--- I noticed but no one said anything, so I appreciate your honesty. I made some changes and hope people can get the idea without the realistic colors. Thank you again for your feedback, I sincerely appreciate it.
Thank you so much for the like Nazia! :)
Thank you Nazia for your like! I love your designs! xo Benita
Hi Nazia, thanks for the feedback on the Three Kings design and also for participating in the color poll. I am just unable to make decisions today, haha. Appreciate your help!! :)
Hi Nazia, Thanks for all the time you've given me on Season of Light. Your advice is so appreciated and valued. Hopefully I'll have time. : )
Hi Nazia Thank you very much for your nice comment!! You always have a way of saying things that make people feel really great! Its an exciting time I'm so happy for you:)
Thanks, Nazia. I'm rooting for your design to get the out of the box award!
Hi Nazia, thanks for the detailed critique on the Three Kings design. I just wanted to note that the colorful robes and hairs are based on the description of the men in the Bible stories, so although it may seem childish/overly colorful, it is more so to stay faithful to the biblical stories.I am experimenting with other color schemes in any case since I intend to rework it so it doesn't become just a copy/repurpose of my photo card submission. Thank you for the ideas and feedback! I will let you know when I update it and would certainly love to hear your thoughts again then! :)
Hi Nazia, Congrats on your Baby Shower Award for Maasai Mara! : )
Back at you my talented and super awesome friend!!! xx <3 :)
Hi Nazia, sorry I beat you to the punch but thank you for the lovely comment :)
Hi Nazia Thank you very for your nice comment!!! :) I know I have said it before but I just love this new style of yours.. so beautiful!!
Thank you so much for your great ideas on typography for my California design. I appreciate your time, Nazia. Especially as we near the deadline. Means a lot. :)
Nazia, you were spot on about using italics for my design! I really like it! thanks so much for taking the poll and giving amazing feedback as always. good luck with the challenge!
Hi Nazia! Of course! Not sure how much help I actually was though ;) Your submissions are fabulous!!
Hi Nazia! Thanks for the likes and feedback on my designs. Re: the watercolor oval frame botanical design, I took your advice to reduce the contrast of the photo and photoshopped it to lighten it.. .then I decided to try a bunch of other photos so I created a poll and would love your thoughts if you have the time! Thanks xx http://www.minted.com/design-rating/608996
You are too sweet, Nazia! Thank you for making my night! And your work has just been getting better and better – you're a star on the rise! On another note, I think someone mentioned making your holiday series into wrapping paper? Yes to this idea! I would totally buy some! :)
Hi Nazia! Thank you for the likes you have given my designs! I so love your "Holiday Cheer" submissions! Good luck in the challenge! :)
You're a rockstar too! I want all of your chrismas cards from this challenge. I also think you might need some wrapping papers and fabrics with those awesome colors and patterns :)
Hi Nazia, your holiday card entries are just amazing! Good luck!!
Thanks for your sweet comment Nazia. You've done some great work this challenge - fingers crossed!
Dropping in to say that I love your holiday cheer series. Good luck!!!
thanks so much for the like Nazia. All the best. By the way congrats on all the recent wins you are amazing.
Thanks for the feedback and for pushing me to go farther!
Hey Nazia - I updated the font options - LMK what you think or if I should stillkeep at it - maybe I need a break from it: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/600970 THANKS for the suggestion!
Hi Nazia, thanks for your encouraging comment on my Barn Dance design! That made my day and it's only Monday morning! good luck in all the holiday challenges! xo, C
Hi Nazia, The series you've posted on your 'Season of Cheer' submission page is fantastic. The colors and patterns are very appealing.
OK, I updated the color selection on the Bold Geometric -LMK what you think whenever you have a free few minutes! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/597112
Hey Nazia! Thanks for the suggestion re: color harmony. Were you thinking more 2-3 colors? Thanks!
Thanks for your feedback, Nazia! :)
Hi Nazia, thanks for liking my Mistletoe Frame entry :)
i just looked! it looks so good! that pattern is fabulous! i might enlarge the photo and border a bit (it feels a little narrow) but i think you've just about got this one!!! yay :) oh, and thanks for making my day already!!!
Hi Nazia, thanks for the like :) I'm loving the bright and unexpected palette you're using for your designs on this challenge – your work is really standing out!
Hi Nazia! You are always too kind!! Your designs are really standing out and look amazing, good luck lady!
You are too sweet!
Thanks, Nazia! I love your designs.
Thanks, Nazia! I really like how graphic your design looks with a b&w! Also, so funny about not having a photographer's eye... I'm kind of the opposite! ;)
Of course! My pleasure, Nazia. Can't wait to see what else you come up with too. Good luck in the holiday challenge!! :)
Thanks for liking Festive Holiday Nazia! :)
thanks so muich for the like all the best to you as well. Congrats on winning in the baby shower submissions .
Hi Nazia, ah thank you so much for your kind comment! I really adored your Masai Mara entry too! Just too too gorgeous!
Hi Nazia thank you very much!! I'm still in a bit of shock lol Congratulations to you also amazing!! Good luck to you also in this big big contest :)
HI Nazia! Thanks so much on all your Likes! Missed seeing your work in the last entry! hopefully will get to see some in the current challenges! Always a pleasure and a treat to look at your work!
but, not so sure about "clever" since it took me uploading about 40 versions to get there LOL I had some great feedback that pushed me in the right direction ;)
awww - thanks so much for your super nice comment, Nazia! Best of luck to you in the holiday challenges - can't wait to see what you submit!!
HI Nazia, thanks for the support by liking my entries :)
Hi Nazia thank you very much for your super nice comment:) Wow you have some amazing entries !!
Hi, Nazia! I was with some update problems, and I eliminated my submission for that reason. Then, I saw an email with your message. I would love to know what you have to say about it. Thank you!
Hi Nazia, thanks for liking my entry :)
Nazia, you were so so helpful on my kids party invitation! Thank you so much for your help, feedback and suggestions. I appreciate it so very much!! Thank you. :)
Hey Nazia! Just want to say thanks so much for your comments on my "Baby Block" design! Such perfect feedback and helped me so much. Thanks so much for taking the time!
Hi Nazia thank you for the like and nice comment:) Your Moderne is gorgeous you should do more designs in this style!!
Nazia, thanks so much for your like on my "Deco Elegance" design. I love your style, good luck this challenge!
Hi Nazia - You're so kind! Thanks for checking in - I def don't think you should remove it though!! I don't think they are too similar at all, I think we've both mixed different patterns in a unique way. I haven't had time to look through submissions in a while (and the challenges are so big these days, it's almost impossible to keep track of everything even if you're trying!!) I think it's pretty inevitable that some 'looks' or 'themes' are going to show up multiple times…and I'm totally ok with it as long as it's done in the artist unique style and not a copy - which I think ours totally are! on a side note...I'm a big fan of your Moderne design…and those little zebras - so cute!! :-)
Thank you for your awesome feedback! I completely agree with it and was giving it a try.. but ran out of time to make it the way I like! =D Wish I asked you before hahaha.. Anw, best of luck in this challenge!
Thank you for liking my submission!
Hi Nazia, Thanks so much for your lovely moment on my garden patch design. It was a very last minute job which I didn't think I could pull off. I think the whole thing took me about 40 minutes! I tried it on white but couldn't make it work and by then it was nearly midnight so I just went to bed instead. Good luck with your beautiful submissions. I especially like Moderne :)
Thanks, Nazia! :)
I switched to Quicksand, so I could do the registry in italics ;) Thanks!!
If I owned it, I'd use it! ;) Thanks so much for your comment, Nazia!!
Thank you for taking the time to give me such helpful feedback! :) I'll be tweaking the designs tomorrow during the critique period and will definitely test out your suggestions!
Hi Nazia, I'm loving all your recent submissions! I'm just wondering if you mind giving me feedback on two of my designs? I feel quite rusty as I took quite a long break from submitting to Minted and would appreciate feedback! Thanks in advance. My designs are at http://www.minted.com/design-rating/546330 and http://www.minted.com/design-rating/546332
thank you, Nazia. Your work is exquisite. :)
Hi Nazia thank you very much for your great suggestion :) I worked on some changes if you get a chance to take another peek. You have some beautiful entries…Tea Party is a total favorite of mine !
