Hi Janelle! I love your copy for the greeting card, both of them, and I am so sorry to hear the story about your children. When I see your copy I can really feel the hope between lines, it is exactly what I am thinking about when 8 years ago my father passed away. I am so happy that my work can match your words.

Hi Janelle! Thanks so much for your super sweet comment! I meant to message you sooner about the copy you chose for my print, Love and Chocolate. Thanks for choosing my artwork, by the way! That print was made a few years ago, and I have the files stored at home somewhere. I've been on vacation visiting family, so I haven't been able to access them. Maybe Minted will hold another greeting card challenge down the road, and I can submit it then. Best of luck in the challenge! :)
