Thanks for the comment! I went off of my baby shower design in the chalk design.
Thanks Renee for the 'like' on my Holy Communion design
Renee, thank you so much for sharing the news about "Quickpen" on the album cover (I definitely still say "album", or even "record", too!). I had no idea, so now every time I see it or think about it, I'm always going to remember you and Kim as the bearers of such great news! Thank you again- you rule.
Thanks Renee for your feedback on "sealed & delivered". i realized the limits on foil just last night, and just managed to make that change!!
Hi Renee- Thank you so much for your feedback on Making Me Blush. Would love to know what you think of the white text. :))))
All the best for the challenges love your set of illustrations of California and New England

Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my kids art challenge entries. That is so flattering and encouraging.
Thank you very much Renee. :)

would like to know what you think thanks http://www.minted.com/design-rating/179069
thanks a lot for your advice I will rework on the design thanks
Thanks for the advice on my design 'Holiday Miracle' Renee ... I made the changes you suggested .... if you have time can you help me decide, I've started a poll.
Thanks so much Renee for the helpful comments!
Thanks, Renee!! I'm loving the "mojo" red tip, too. ;)
Thanks for the sweet comment on my Kids Invitation entries ... as a girl from a small island in the Caribbean, it's unbelievable that I get to share my work with such talented Minties like yourself. I wouldn't even know where to start to market my work/designs on my own. There aren't alot of opportunities for stationery/greeting cards in my neck of the woods! :) But the first chance I get to put myself out there again ... part of the reason would be because of the support I get from you guys here at Minted! Thanks so much for always supporting me.
Thanks Renee for your nice comments on my "Bows of Holly" entry. I am a great admirer of your work and and loved your "mojo red" branding! Good luck with your entries in the challenge. Regards, Chris
Thank you Renee for your advice! When you posted that comment on my design, I was thinking about the same idea of doing only outlines for the hats too! I just posted the new version and I hope they work better with the lettering. Thank you again! <3
Hi Renee, I've got a poll going for color choice per your suggestions. Please stop by when you have a free minute. Thank so much! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/165309
Hi Renee, thanks so much for your kind comment on my Sunny Holidays design! That was iffy, so I wasn't sure. I did start out with red in place of the blush and it felt heavy with the other colors, so I lightened it up. I could certainly start a poll with your suggestions though! Stay tuned and thanks again!
Thank you Renee for your sweet comment. Was feeling so uninspired!
Thanks for the feedback and all of your wonderful suggestions for my mistletoe design, Renee! Super helpful :)

Hi Renee! Thanks so much for your comment on my design. Wondering what you think of the new layout. I wasn't crazy about the flags as I am suddenly seeing so many designs with them so decided to simplify. Only if you have time of course. Thanks! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/87844

Thank you so much for your encouragement on my Indian Rush Hour illustration, Renee! And I'm so glad it gave me the opportunity to come back here and see all of your wonderful pieces for sale. You are quite the type mixing expert! (one of many talents that I see in your work) but the ease with which you are mixing and matching all these interesting typefaces is so inspiring since that's an area I'd love to grow in. That inspiration notebook is particularly stunning. Thanks again for brighting my day :)
Thank you Renee! Your comment made my day :-)

Hi, Renee! Just want to stop by and thank you for your nice comment on my Tangram Heart design - I really appreciate it. So glad to see that Retro Recipe got an award - LOVE that one!
Hi Renee, I am always so glad when you like one of my designs. The typography advice you gave me very early on, and how uncertain I was even when you gave it, still means so much to me. Your work is always so distinct and award winning. Thanks again.
Hi Renee! Thanks so much for the help & comment. Yeah, you're right it don't need border and background. Thanks again for the help.
Renee, I had so much fun sitting next to you at the meet-up the other eve. I had no idea you were Smudge Design! I had to e-mail Katy to figure out what co. name you design under. I just love your work! Your Music Notes notebook is just amazing. Also think you have one of the best religious Xmas cards on the site. Anyway, great to meet you, and will hopefully see u at next year's L.A. Meet-up.
Thank you Renee for your helpful comment. I adjusted the transparency on the flower image. It is smoother and softer and it isn't so dark. Best of luck in this challenge.
Hi Renee! I made some variations on "Headline Romance" based on your suggestions and I wondered if you'd be willing to take another look if you get a chance? Thanks so much!
thanks for your note! you read my mind...yes that was off-center. :)
Thanks Renee! It's your comment that alerted me to the announcement. I SO appreciate your support!
Hi Renee! It has taken me a couple of weeks but I just wanted to say thank you for your note! Your work is really inspiring as it always seems so well thought out and you always seem to pull off the retro vibe and make it look entirely effortless and chic. I'm a fan! :)
Thank you so much, Renee! I had no idea until I got your note!
Hey Renee, thanks for your feedback on Vintage mill. I took your advice and nudged the copy up a bit. If you have time would you mind taking a second look and let me know what you think, if it's enough or needs more. It's a very subtle change but I didn't want to center the entire thing, I was going for more of a rustic, hand stamped feel so perfectly centered would deter from that I think. Thanks again :)
Thanks for letting me know about the 'special recognition' Renee (I didn't know until I saw your message)!
Congrats again Renee! Foilage was a winner from the start. :)
