Thanks for your help Lauren - I changed my date to a more interesting italic font and a lot smaller so it doesn't scream out now. It was music to my ears to hear that you liked the main font with the flower as it's the first time I used it. I love your style of design!

Hi, Lauren! Just wanted to thank you for your Christmas card - I love that you used one of your fabulous Minted designs! Marley (and you two, also) are adorable! I enjoyed your Mintie note, as well - best of luck to you on your new business ventures in 2012 (not that you need any!) I'm jealous that you spent New Year's in Austin - I miss Chuy's (and El Rinconcito, etc, etc). Austin has the BEST restaurants EVER!!!

Lauren, thanks so much for the lovely holiday card. I especially liked the Palm Papers card... so chic! Wishing you all the best in the new year – I'm so excited for you with the new business venture. I know it's going to be a smashing success. I also have to tell you that I used to live off of Richmond too. I love East Dallas. I lived right off of White Rock Lake until my recent marriage. My husband already had a house in the 'burbs, ugh. We're trying to sell soon and get back to my beloved M Streets!
