Hey Carolyn! Thanks for the suggestion on my Hoppy Easter design. I was debating about the year myself, so glad you made the suggestion. I made it into 2018 - LMK what you think & thanks!!

Thanks for your feedback Carolyn! And yes, I can definitely do more colourways and can even do some solid colour ones so I suppose the most important thing is getting the best version for voting up there. Thanks so much for your help!! I really appreciate your feedback :)

Thanks for your comment on my Bold and Bright Peace and Joy design Carolyn! I'm curious, do you think it will work for more customers because more photos will fit in this format, rather than a full bleed photo? I found this multicolour version only worked with a few photos because most of the photos are more muted and you really need a pop of bright colour in the photo to work with this one... that's actually what I'm struggling with!

Thank you SO much Carolyn! It means so much! While I was voting I came across several of your cards that I was like...."heck yes I will buy this!....this deserves a 5!" so the feeling is definitely mutual!! xoxo

Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments on my peppermint design - I agree with you about the desert photos! Good thinking. I've switched it up, although I hope it's not too literal now. The kraft background also works great! Thank you!

Thanks for your help! What I was thinking was to kinda make the twins card liek a fine art print where the artist signs their name and dates. I was thinking of doing the lien like you suggested but wanted to see what others thought of the style first ;) Thanks for your time!
