The pun competition is so fierce!! No need to be embarrassed - it happens to all of us. I figured if it were me, I’d want to know. Still sucks :/ sorry!!

Hi Jen! Thanks so much for your helpful comment on my 'Frame' design. I created a revised version including what I think might've been your suggestion (option B in the poll) - I think it looks a lot better! Thanks again for your input. :)

Hi Jen, I just finished a design and now I noticed that it has some simarility with your entry "Easter eggs". If you think it is too similar to your design I will delete mine. Please let me know.
