My name is Monica and I am honored to be a part of this amazing community. I earned a Fine Arts degree in college but my true creative love has become graphic design. I have enjoyed designing cards since I was a little girl and, like many other Minties, I discovered a genuine passion for stationery and all things paper while planning my wedding.

Hello! I am honored you have selected my artwork. I hope you enjoy the vibrant color palette and whimsical vibe I've created. Best to you, Monica
Thank you so much for the nice comment Monica =)
I haven't had much time to comment lately but wanted to say your work has been so beautiful! I love it every time :)
Hi Monica, thanks for your sweet message on hooray, hooray. I can see what you mean about the lemon reading a bit somber. when you say "festive" what do you mean exactly? I will give it a try - have been struggling with this design for a couple of days. Thanks!!!!
Haha, I'm glad you got it, it's totally a take on that Seinfeld episode, I was wondering if anyone would get that;)
Thanks for the sweet comment, Monica - you made my day!
Hi, thank you so much for your sweet note! It means so much coming from you... and right back at ya, as I am a HUGE fan of your style and work :)
Thanks for your sweet comment Monica! And congrats on your holiday picks as well!
wow, that's so sweet of you to say that, monica! I guess I'm feeling a bit prolific in this challenge because I am a hopeless romantic, ha, ha! always love and admire your work and loving your submissions as well!!
how sweet are you! thank you Monica, means so much coming from you :)
I just needed a new power cord so good to go. I made some changes. if you get a chance let me what you think. Thanks so much for the advice. :) Chris
Thank you for you comment Monica. My Mac died so I have to wait to make changes but totally agree with you and Danielle. :)
Did not want to put on your design entry page - How about a more 'generic' color for voting instead of the orange? I do love it and it is so you (the bold colors - stunning!), but i think purely for voting purposes the audience might still want to see something a tiny bit more traditional with the soft green. Just a thought - and please dont do it if you dont want to :) x
Monica, it is still a great design. Good luck!
Congrats Monica on your minibook win. Such a nice design. Chris
Hi Monica! It hasn't been selected... yet? Fingers crossed. Thanks for the nice words! :)

Thanks Monica for the compliment and feedback! So appreciate it. Chris
wow thanks Mon, such a lovely compliment :)
thanks Mon, i was pulling my hair out over there!;0
Hahaha, thanks so much for your funny and sweet comment! I think I should say that more often, because I honestly sketched it as I was sketching logos for a client, and it was more promising then the logo sketches. So maybe tell yourself your finished, and boom, a few more ideas will come! : )
Thanks so much for your sweet note, Monica! I really appreciate it! Your submissions for this challenge are lovely as well! Best of luck as we round out this last week! :)

You too - your submissions are always beautiful, and so original :)
Thank you so much for the sweet comment on Peace Love Joy Monica -- I really appreciated it!! :)
You're all good, Monica. I once told Jennifer Wick that her design made me want to fling things at her out of jealousy. I actually loved your comment. In fact, when I got the email with the "you got a comment" thing and the preview of the comment, it got cut off at "I don't like" and I got all nervous that my first comment was negative and so I was extra happy to see that you liked the design, just not me. :)
Monica, i made few change based on you feedback let me know what do you think of it now..http://www.minted.com/design-rating/92352?filter=all&sort=createat
Thanks Monica. You are so sweet. I was not in NY tho. I had to back out because of taxes. Maybe next year:)

congrats Monica for your editors picks :) awesome
Congrats Monica on your EP's !!!! So awesome, love your work !
Hey Monica, I was just going to say your comment made my day, but I see Olivia wrote the same thing! Seriously though, I so appreciate you liking my handcut Joy, because I submitted it a minute before the challenge closed, so I wasn't sure if it was finished enough. Your designs are stunning for this challenge, with my favorite being the bell one!
Thank you so much for your kind comment, Monica! It made my day. And I have to say, you're rocking this challenge yourself :)
Hi Monica! if you have a moment, pls let me know what you think about my new submission: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/85803 would really appreciate your input :)

Thanks so much for your nice comment on my Season's Greetings design. It made my day! Loving all of your holiday entries by the way!
Thanks Monica ! Looks so much better now ! You have such an good eye for great design, thanks again I really appreciate it ;)
Thanks Monica for feedback on MERRY EVERYTHING! You're awesome!!
Thanks for the comment on my "Beautiful Flames" entry! Though, you may be the only other person who likes it! Haha. It was total silence from everyone else. Oh well, at least we thought it was cool... and that's good enough for me! :) BTW, i'm diggin all your holiday entries! Cool stuff!
Thank you so much for the color feedback on my "cabin greeting" design I have a few options if you have a sec would love to know which one you like the best :)
aah only a pleasure! was so refreshing to see! love it :)
Of course, Monica - anytime! That design is one of my favorites in the challenge so far for sure!
Hey Monica ! Thank you so much for your nice comment ! You made my week ! ;) I've been trying really hard and pushing myself to be better and it feels really good when someone talented like you notices. I need to learn and improve so much more, but with kind and nice people like yourself it gets easier. Thank you, and you too keep up the awesome work !
Hi Monica, I would appreciate design-loving eyes any time! Yes, feel free to comment on any of my designs. I have been struggling with this competition, for sure! And you must be doing something [everything] right with all of your well-deserved wins, Monica! Thanks in advance!
Thanks to you too! Your comments are so appreciated! I'm not feeling really good on this competition either - its so big and I bombed the last two announcements so I'm feeling like I'm not doing well. Thank you so much for the positive feedback - and good luck - though you don't need, your work is wonderful :)
You have some awesome entries in the holiday challenge. Winners for sure!
Wow thanks Monica!!! That would be a coup!! Fingers crossed... :)
Thank you so much for the comments on the silhouettes --- I"m about to bang my head on my desk i've been so frustrated with it. I'll give those changes a try -THANK YOU!! :)
hi Monica, made few changes based on your feedback on my " wall art" holiday business cards....if you get a moment let know what do you think of it now .. :) thanks again
Thank you so much for the feedback on the evergreen Monica -- I've been stewing on it for a week! and just can't make up my mind. :)
Thanks so much Monica for your suggestions on my "wall Art". i will work on that :)
Thanks so much for your congrats Monica! It totally made my night (and all the other submissions worth my while) Gotta keep at it don't you? : )
Thanks so much Monica :)
I emailed Minted just to be sure - feels weird to enter it twice when it looks the same but I think it's a separate category too
You are so welcome!
Thanks Monica!! I love seeing all the designs you come up with!
next on the list.. make these comments editable, LOL.. YOUR.. not yur..
hey there;) i changed the colors on my hot ar balloon.but im thinking the yellow makes it look like a lightbulb?? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/82917?filter=all&sort=createat.. thanks for yur sweet comments!!!!
Hi Monica... I know it's a very small detail, but the leading still seems overly large. I don't know... maybe a different font... possible all-caps so you don't have to worry about ascenders/descenders? Or you could put "happy birthday" all on one line and a name below? Just some thoughts. Hope I'm not bugging you :)
Thanks so much for your suggestion on my Fun & Festive Birthday Card - I changed the purple like you suggested and definitely like it better. Thank you!
Hi Monica! I almost forgot about my scallop design, i added a couple other color options. would you mind taking a look. thanks for your input! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/82101
Monica, thank you for your suggestions! I took your advise and made some changes on Just One.
Lol- thanks Monica- enjoying the fleeting moment ;)
thanks for you awesome help Monica!
You are very welcome!
Monica, just looked at your "flying high" on a bigger screen and I think it looks super!
Hi, Monica! Thanks so much for your feedback on "One Word." I think I'm going to skip the flags on this one, to keep it more minimal. But, I really appreciate your feedback - thanks, again!!
Thanks Mon! Will try out darker x
Hi Monica! would you mind looking at my deco lace design. Im stressing over the text on the tabs. I left an option in the comments. Thanks for your help! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/81418?filter=all&sort=createat
Monica you are most welcome! To tell the truth, coming from a new minty with no credits under my belt, I was a little nervous to do so. :) You are such an amazing designer. Chris
