ps - thank you for the nice note on the FB post too - I meant to thank you sooner, that was so kind :)
LOL Definitely! (and thank you for the nice comment) And feel free to name any of your designs after me because they are all lovely! :D xxL
Thanks, Susan, for your likes. Likin' all of your designs for this challenge. ;)
Thx for your "likes" Susan. U know I'm a big fan of your work!
hello Susan, Thank you for liking my works!!!
Hey, Susan! Does that mean you prefer the mint one to the one posted? or like them both? Thanks!! :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/188949
You're so sweet! Thanks! :)
LOVE your work! Your illustrations always bring a smile!
Congrats Susan. Well done as always. Hope you're feeling fine.
Thanks so much, Susan!!! :)
Congrats on your CMYK accomplishment, Susan!!! So deserving.
Congrats on Magenta!! Woohoo!
And congrats to you too Susan on M. Funny how we all sort of started together and hung in there. Your work continues to inspire me.
Thank you for your likes Susan :-)
Hi Susan! Just came across some of my very first (& awful) designs that I submitted over two years ago (Dec. 2011). You were one of the first people to give me feedback and help me improve my designs! Thank you! Made me laugh to see those old designs and comments. Hope you are doing well. :)
Congrats on big win Susan. But mostly I wanted to congratulate you on having another baby. So wonderful. I will miss you at the NSS but hope you'll share pictures. And keep up the good work. You have such a talent for nailing it.
thanks so much!!! i was considering taking it off. wasnt sure if it was working! i needed that.
Thanks so much Susan!
Hey talented lady, fingers crossed that your baby invite is #1. It's the perfect piece!!
Thanks so much, Susan:)
Hey Susan! I just had to say I love the comments you leave - they just make smile!
So sweet Susan! Thank you.
Thanks again, Susan. I am definitely going to keep submitting designs. I am now working on another Room Decor design. :-) Yep, Minted does have its own style and I know my style deviates from that somewhat. My personal challenge is to try to create designs that are consistent with Minted's aesthetic, and at the same time are consistent with my personal aesthetic. So we will see how it goes.
And congratulations to you for your win in the Holiday Minnbook Challenge! Keep up the great work. :-)
Susan congrats on your minibook win! Great design. Chris
Susan, thank you so much for your comment. I came and just the right time. That really makes me feel good. I like everyone else work so hard on these designs and it is so disappointing to time and again not get a high rating and not get a win or an Editor's Pick. Your comment is encouraging. Thank you.
Thanks Susan. 100+ shots and finally a keeper. I so enjoyed meeting you in NY and love your kindnesses in the community.
Susan, thanks for sending me that link! I hadn't seen it. It's so fun to see a design that you created "in real life!!"
LOL! You too! adore that FOXY! :D
Many thanks Susan. God bless!
Hi Susan! Thank you very much for the help and comment. Yeah your right about the color background. Lighter color is better than cream. Many thanks to you.
Hi Susan. I made changes to the Warm Wishes design. If you have a moment, I would love to hear your feedback. Thank you!
Aww thanks Susan! you are knocking them out the park (as always) ;)
Hi Susan. Thank you for your feedback! Making changes now. :-)
(Haven't had a chance to fix them yet). I really appreciate your help and trust your opinion!
Thank you for your suggestion, Susan! Those confetti triangles were bothering me too!
THANK YOU, susan!!! I'm soo happy.. =D
Aw thanks for your extremely sweet comment Susan! Your illustrations are always so incredibly amazing, I'm sure that your rainbow would have been absolutely adorable :)
Thanks for confirming the simplicity! I played around with some frames and flourishes, but ditched them all. :)
Congrats on your greeting card wins Susan. Great work! Chris
Thank you for your sweet comment Susan.
Thanks for your critique! Funny how changing one little thing can make such a difference. Love having other eyes to see things i look past!
Hi Susan, I changed the snow man and removed the shadow. Take a look if you have a chance. Thanks so much. Chris
Susan -- thank you SO MUCH for your sweet comment! You honestly made my day. Your work is always so creative and beautiful!
Susan thanks for your comment about the shadow. I will try it out and change tonight. Chris
Thank you for the sweet comment - it means so much to me! Your work is always so amazing and I am so flattered that you liked it :)
No they are totally different in concept and of course yours is cooler.
Of course you are not bugging me! I so appreciate the help! Thanks :)
Hey Susan! Thsx so much for your comment on my sweet bouquet design. Do you think the change I made to the type works or do you think it might be better to go with a different font? Thanks! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/82324
Thank you for your comment Susan!
Thanks for the welcome Susan. I love the challenges; not sure if I will ever win, but the process is so much fun! Love your work!
Thanks for the quick catch! I sometimes forget to transfer the art to the template before I submit - d'oh!! :)
Thanks so much for the nice message, Susan! Huge congrats to you too!!! Your designs are gorgeous. :)
Way to win big Susan. I loved seeing each design appear as they were all so fresh looking. Nice job.
Thank you so much for your comment, Susan- sending big congrats your way, too!
Thanks, Susan! and congrats on ALL of your wins!!! :)
Hi Susan! Sorry this is so late, but thank you so much for your cute congratulations on argh! Totally made me laugh!! You're always so bright + encouraging + sweet. Your comments always make me smile. Love your work, btw - just in case I haven't told you lately! Hope you're having a super awesome New Year!!! :)
Thank you for all the super sweet comments Susan! they really made my week and meant so much coming from an awesome illustrator such as your lovely self! ^_^ *blush*
hi Susan, you did NOT lead me astray at all! I really am grateful for your feedback and I think it was very good advice. I needed a nudge into less-comfortable directions and I think you helped me get there. Helped me nudge my other submissions as well. So thank you!
Thank you so much for your comment! It means a lot, especially since I'm very new at this. Your designs are absolutely amazing...just wonderful!!
Thank you so very much, Susan, for your super kind comment on my We Heart Baby design the other day - it's still making my day! :)
Susan - thanks for your recommendation on my Sew Perfect submission. I tried using the same stitching throughout, but it wasn't working so well. =( I really appreciate the suggestion though!!
Thanks Susan for your comment on my Brighten Up design... I had actually vacillated on the type of font to use for that detail, so thank you for the suggestion of the sans serif font.
Thank you for the kind comment Susan! I'm in shock that your beautiful designs were not in the top 10! They are so gorgeous, and vintage picnic was one of my absolute favorites of all the entries! It's just proof to me that Minted has many more Editors picks yet to name. :)
Thank you, Mrs. Asbill - you are very sweet! :)
Yay for adventurer!!! Awesome set! Phrosné
thanks for the comment, much appreciated! :)
thanks, Susan, please tell my husband! ;-)
I dont hate you, I appreciate you! :)
Susan, thanks so much for your sweet comment on Whispers of Love. It really is a lovely compliment, I admire your work!
Hi Susan! thank you for your input re. my laurel wreath design! much appreciated. Ive made some changes, would really be grateful if you could take a peek again. thanks so much! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/70817
I really like the die cut shape on "One Fine Day"! I think it actually looks better. I'd love your opinion if you have the time to look. :) Thanks again.
Thank you for the suggestions, Susan! I keep forgetting about the die-cut shapes! I'll have to try it. :)
I'm in shock, Susan! I had that pegged as a winner for sure...love that little guy!!
Susan - Thanks for the comment on my "Foliage" design. You buy that and I'll buy your awesome holiday card with the sweet reindeer illustration (after it takes the grand prize!). :)
well, i still feel bad. you are a very talented designer, and very admirable. keep up the great work!
No,no, dont delete yours. I totally trust that you hadnt seen my design and your design is totally awesome and is just the same concept. maybe just change the title?;) thanks for being concerned, it means a lot. (oh and I like the grey;)
susan~ thanks for the comment :))
Susan, thank you for the comment. So nice of you! x
Thanks for your note Susan. I'm actually planning to send that out for my design company this year and was thrilled it was received well in the Minted community. I'm a huge fan of your work and always look forward to seeing your entries.
Thanks, Susan - I love getting comments like that! ;) And congrats on your feature in the baby shower email ad this am!
Thanks Susan! I'm re-saving the file now so hopefully I can fix the issue!
Thanks, Susan! :)

Oh Susan! thanks for your sweet comment about your predictions. :)
Ok, so your note about my "Washi Love" design is the sweetest and best note ever!! It made me smile and was definitely needed today ... rough day with baby being off schedule (decided that she wanted to wake up at 4:45 am and stay up, ugh) and having to deal with mortgage/loan stuff for our house purchase. Hopefully, tomorrow is better. :o)
Thanks for YOUR kind words, Susan! Definitely a well-deserved first place win! :o)
You comment made my day :) tnx!
You must treat yourself on this win. Fabulous design. Congrats.
Nope - no win this time...fingers crossed for the next one! Congrats, again - your Adventurer design is simply amazing and definitely deserving of the #1 spot!! :)
