About Smudge Design

Located in sunny California, I'm a graphic designer, yogini, chocolate lover, and self-proclaimed pug addict. After obtaining my degree in fine art, I transitioned into a graphic design career and found my ultimate passion. In my spare time, I also enjoy fostering pugs that are in search of finding their forever homes.

Good morning Renee, I'm happy you liked my Tropic of Love – thanks for that :) I think I had the same idea as you, because it looks like you worked to create wedding invites that would compliment your save the date cards. I've not done that before, but I found it really gave me a great place to jump off from with designing the wedding invites …great minds and such ;) Best of luck!

Thanks for the sweet comment on my Kids Invitation entries ... as a girl from a small island in the Caribbean, it's unbelievable that I get to share my work with such talented Minties like yourself. I wouldn't even know where to start to market my work/designs on my own. There aren't alot of opportunities for stationery/greeting cards in my neck of the woods! :) But the first chance I get to put myself out there again ... part of the reason would be because of the support I get from you guys here at Minted! Thanks so much for always supporting me.

Thanks Renee for your nice comments on my "Bows of Holly" entry. I am a great admirer of your work and and loved your "mojo red" branding! Good luck with your entries in the challenge. Regards, Chris

Thank you Renee for your advice! When you posted that comment on my design, I was thinking about the same idea of doing only outlines for the hats too! I just posted the new version and I hope they work better with the lettering. Thank you again! <3

Hi Renee, thanks so much for your kind comment on my Sunny Holidays design! That was iffy, so I wasn't sure. I did start out with red in place of the blush and it felt heavy with the other colors, so I lightened it up. I could certainly start a poll with your suggestions though! Stay tuned and thanks again!
