Thanks for the feedback, Amy! I worked up a white and off-white option for my Deck the Halls design. Would love to see what you think! Thanks for the suggestion!
Thank you so much for the like on 'aquatic glimmer' design for pre wedding announcement challenge. means a lot to me coming from you guys! Much appreciated.
Hi Amy, thank you so much for the Christmas card. And thank you for donating your proceeds to Living Well-- clean water is such a necessity that is often taken for granted (I worked in Sierra Leone, just next door). Hope you have a wonderful New Year :)
Hi Amy I just wanted to let you know I made the color change you suggested and it looks way better!! So thank you so much:)
Hi Amy thank you so much for your suggestion!! Now I totally see it …the pink is too pink!! Ok Im going to work on these changes this weekend thank you once again for your amazing eye!
Thanks for the helpful feedback on Sand and Sun, Amy! I've removed the rays and have a new poll going, if you have a minute. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/694457
And here I thought that you were doing fabulous things in PS. :)
Thanks for your comment on my "geo noel" design. I agree that it's a bit matchy matchy, but I had actually been working on that "noel" in those exact colors long before this challenge started. Then when the photos came out, I got so excited that the one in the design was part of the choices :) Is it too much? Any suggestions for shifting the color a bit?
Hello Amy, Thank you for the LIKE on my "Snippets of Joy" entry. You've truly made my day:)
HAHA! I've totally been staying away from foil!! :-D
Thank you once again! You're a rockstar!
Thank you so much Amy for your helpful comments on my Harlequin Holiday design,it really does feel better... Could you please have a look at the design when you have time... Thanks! :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/593148

Thanks so much for you feedback regarding adding foil! I added a new poll with foil options :)
Thanks for your feedback, Amy! That's just what it needed :)
Hi Amy. Thanks for your feedback on my Merrier Season. I tried your suggestion to mix the top fonts up with the Merrier in script and the rest in san serif, but it just didn't jive. Thanks again and have a great night! :-)
Hi Amy thank you very much for the like.. always makes me feel great when I get a like from you:)
Hi Amy! Thanks so much for your photo suggestion on my "Oh What Fun" design! I created a poll with a few photo options, if you could let me know what you think when you have a chance. Thanks! :)
thanks so much Amy will work on the type for joy to behold
Thank you Amy! :)
Hi Amy, thank you so much for your awesome feedback on my design "God's Rich Blessings"! I appreciate it very much- I'm such an admire of your work and style! I've made some updates on my design based in yours and others suggestions and would love to here what you think again if you have some time. Thanks again for all your help on this! :)
Funny that you mentioned the manger doesn't fit in my New Manger design, I was just thinking the same thing! Thanks!
Amy, thanks so much for the like on my Simply Blessed design. I love your His Gospel is piece entry. Good luck!
Hi Amy, if we use your family pix do you have a preference whether or not we use your real name in Challenges? We've changed it in production but I'm wondering how you feel?
Fun to see your lovely family photos in my holiday photo assortment! :)
Hi Amy, made some changes, now I have been on this one too long and can't see it in any perspective any more. :) If you have a chance take a look and let me know your thoughts. Thanks so much for all the help on this. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/568815

Thank you so much for your like Amy!
Amy, thank you SO much for your very generous comment! Made my day! :-)
and THANK YOU!!!
Is this better, Amy? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/567668 I had actually started this big, but went smaller so it fit a portrait orientation too.
Thanks for your helpful feedback, Amy! I do like the slab serif for the name. :)
I am in love with your recent wedding picks. Such thoughtful and gorgeous designs! Excited to see the full suites...
Hi Amy I just love the 2 birds!! Thank you so much:) I agree with the casual wording, its taken on a more formal look now. I tried removing the pine trees but it looks really plain…but then again I'm so bad with over doing!! I will work on it today. Thank you very much for taking the time to help me!!
Hi Amy thank you so much for the amazing suggestion... I love it ...never even thought .. 2 birds (considering its a wedding invite) makes total sense!! Lol Thank you so much once again for your awesome help! I love every single entry you have!!!
Thanks for your thoughts on Love Label, Amy. I've done some reworking, would you mind taking a peek again? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/468624
And you just made my day, maybe even my whole year. Thanks for the boost of confidence!
Hi Amy I changed the type if you get a chance could you please take a peek and let me know your thoughts? (Thank you for you comment about my florals:)
Hi Amy thank you so much for your feedback! I will work on it now... if I only had your amazing skills when it came to type!! :)
Okay, I've been working on Tailored Elegance and have a poll up, if you have a minute. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/463492
Thank you for the like on "Black Label"! I've been a fan since I first joined!
Thanks a bunch, Amy, I appreciate your input!
Hi Amy, Thanks for your feedback on Blooming Clusters. I have a color poll up if you have a minute - http://www.minted.com/design-rating/462676. Also, please let me know how the type looks. All I did was change the settings when saving for web, and I feel like it looks closer to the actual design.
Hi Amy - Thanks so much for all your great feedback on my Leafy Cascades design. I really appreciate it!
Amy thanks for the great suggestions on my chantilly veil design. I did actually do it in gold but it just didn't pop when uploaded. Looked great on my computer though. And I will move the lace up a touch. :)
Hi Amy i just wanted to say thank you again for your suggestion on my holiday entry awhile ago. This card made it into the top 50 and it was because of you I reworked the design! So thanks again very much:) Congratulation to you on all of your wins, you work is really beautiful!
Thanks for the suggestion about the blue box behind the names in my design, Amy! Was a little tricky trying to visualize how it would work with different length names, but I think what I've got is an improvement. Appreciate the feedback!
Awww. Thank you for the sweet comment! It means a lot coming from you - a Minted rock star! :)
Hi Amy thank you very much for your like and great suggestions!! I will give all of them a try. I'm still working on the changes for the suggestions you gave me on my other design. Once again thank you very much for taking the time to comment on my work. I really appreciate your suggestions they are so right on… as soon as I read them I'm like "I totally see that now" :)
Amy - I really appreciate your comments on my design! It was very constructive and help my design tremendously. I cannot thank you enough. (And your minted work is stunning!)
Hi Amy! Thanks so much for your thoughtful suggestion on my "Joy Sprig" design. I added another sprig - would love to hear if you think it's an improvement if you have a minute!
Amy, thanks SO much for your suggestions on my designs. I appreciate it so much!!!
Amy, I just have to tell you that you write the very best comments. Always thoughtful feedback and really good ideas. You know your stuff. :)
Thank you for your suggestion, Amy! Thanks!! <3
You are the sweetest, Amy! I am a huge fan of your work, too. xoxo
Thanks for all your helpful suggestions this challenge, Amy! I've substituted a new font in Jubilee Garlands since Bodoni doesn't come in a lighter weight. Would you please let me know what you think? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/372188
Thanks for the font suggestion on Expressive Joy - I think I'm going with a simpler one :)
Hi Amy! Thank you very much for the help. I did use the foil for the leaves and it's very nice. Foil is very pretty and I'm starting to like using into the design. :) Many thanks to you.
Hi Amy thank you again! I changed the font... I always struggle with type.
I love that you are self taught and are so amazing with type, it gives me hope that one day I too will improve!! I will work on the pinecones and give it a try I love that idea! Thank you again very much :)
Hi Amy thank you so much for taking another look.. I'm glad you like the changes!
Love the idea of bright! Thanks for all your help!!!!!
Hi Amy, thanks again and quick question on "white and wonderful". Do you think the year divided with the snowflake is working, or would you eliminate the snowflake? Your feedback is greatly appreciated. (LOL, my husband is yelling for me to start cooking dinner!)
THANKS for the suggestion on nixing the die-cut on "Merrily Ever After" :) I went with your advice!
Hi Amy, THANK YOU for pointing out an issue that I overlooked regarding printing concerns with foil! Much appreciated. BTW, your work is stunning!!
I'm glad the photos were speaking to you. All I was hearing from them was "nope." :) Thanks for the suggestions!
Thanks for your suggestion Amy. I'm wondering about submitting both designs. I've read where Minted asks that you not submit multiples of the same design with minor changes. Would it be an issue if I submitted both or are they different enough? Thanks again!
Hi Amy thank you very much for the great suggestion on my design I will give it a try. Your work is amazing!
Thanks, Amy, for your constructive feedback, I love hearing from you! ;)
Thanks for all of your feedback this last week Amy! It's been very helpful. I had some time just now to updated my cocktail digital invite and would like to get your opinion if you have time. Thanks http://www.minted.com/design-rating/368606
Thanks Amy for your feedback! I will try both and re-submit!
Yes, quicksand! Thanks for the suggestion, Amy. I think it works much better now :)
Thank you so much for your feedback on my "Merry Year" design! I have updated the poll based on your tips! :)
Thanks so much for your feedback! I myself liked the "B" better, but was torn between the two! Thanks again! Really appreciate it :)
You have some really awesome designs.
thanks so much Amy for the like and you are an amazing person and designer and artist who knows how to bring up and ground us minties also . It is such a nice when I am working on something and you chime into it. When I first started I could not tell left from right. But today thanks to all of your support in our beautiful community. I am starting to feel confident . Thanks so much Love Neeta
Thanks so much for your suggestion, loving the design after I took your advise!
Thanks for your help and awesome suggestions, Amy, LMK if this is more in line: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/364592
Oh thank you! I was so excited to see it featured there :)
Thanks for helping me out with my paperclip design Amy, I really appreciate the effort!
Thanks for the help, Amy!
Thanks for your comment on my bonfire invite!! Do you think I should make the size of the top text larger or just make it all caps to make it more readable? I appreciate your opinion, thank you!!
Thanks SO much for you comment Amy! Love your work and value your opinion. Will you be at NSS this weekend? If not, I hope we'll meet in Denver sometime when I'm visiting family.
Thanks Amy for the comment i am working on it and will do a poll shortly. Thanks looking forward to see more designs from you also. Thanks for great beginning to the photo card challenge.
I just wanted to thank you for your advice on my design, it sure looks better with the changes. Your work is amazing too by the way! Thanks again
Thanks for your comment, Amy. Do you mean like this? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/274814
I've been meaning to tell you that I miss your presence in the minted community! I know you must be super busy with your kitchen reno, but I just wanted you to know that you are missed and I hope you are doing well! :)
Thanks again, Amy. How is looking to you now?
Hi Amy, you gave me some great feedback about the type being too tight on my design "On the Wild Side". If you have a minute, could you please take another look and let me know how it looks to you now? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/265547

Thanks for your feedback - yikes gravestone! I totally saw it once you said it! Looks like I have some work to do :)
Thanks so much for your feedback! You know, it's so funny I have been looking for a photo to go with the message for a while and I didn't find any gentlemen that were just quite merry enough to make it work... until this awesome new batch arrived. haha :)
Hi Amy, I can see now why you were in the top 3 for constructive feedback last year. Your comments are very helpful-direct and to the point (which is exactly how I like it)! Thanks for taking the time to give a great critique on my design :)
