Great call on BOTH those comments! Thank you, Ashley! It's so funny, because I thought I'd jump on and submit things I'd already worked on. But some of these are from like, September, and I need to give them a more recent once over for sure! ha! I wanted to get them in while I had a minute though. Thanks for taking a second to look at them already!

Hi Ashley, thanks for your comment on "nonpareil lion" :) I guess I was thinking about sprinkling nonpareils on a cupcake when I illustrated the stream above his head. Not sure if it makes sense, and I will try to rework it if I can think of something else. Also, I think you are a way above average designer!! Cheers :)

Hello!! Not sure if you whereat all interested in using the 50% Dreamer 50% Baller copy... I didn't get the chance to break up the text per your comment... but I got the impression that editing would be ok if both parties knew? Not totally sure. Anyhow just wanted to throw that out there, I love your work and would be honored if you ended up using it :) Cheers! ~ Allison

Hi Ashley, thank you so much for your comments on my llama design!! I did play around with the backgrounds and opacities, and I just couldn't get anything to work correctly (a blue background made the llamas look like they were in the arctic-LOL) I DID stagger and bring down the clouds, though, and I think it looks a lot better! Thank you for taking the time to leave me feedback. And sorry I am so late in responding, I've had two sick kiddos!
