Hi, Katie -- I was wondering if you have time to design one card for the Greeting Card challenge for a new copy I have thought of. I love your whimsical designs, and I believe you can bring this new copy to life. I have sent a friend request to you on Facebook (I'm "Marie Ag") there, so that I can send you the copy there... I look forward to hearing back from you :) Thank you :)

Thanks so much for your feedback on my 'Greetings from San Francisco' design, Katie! Do you think that Santa and the presents should be in trolley instead of the taxi? I do like the idea. I plan to make this a series for all the big cities. Maybe Santa could be riding different modes of transportation in different cities...Would love to get some advise from you, you are such an incredible illustrator! love your work!

Hi Katie, thanks for your comment on my circus-themed design! Yes, you were right that I had the same design for the baby shower.. I felt it worked better for a child's birthday though so when the challenge came up, I decided to resubmit the design! :) Love your work and good luck in the challenge! :))

Thanks Katie for the nice comments on my critters. You are right, it took me so long to design them that I didn't have time for any other entries. :) I love all your entries, especially the great Lion! Best of luck.

Hi Katie! Thanks for the feedback on "striped Party". I changed the background color. Hopefully it is a little more playful looking now!

Hi Katie, thank you for your feedback! I did try to put the two two at the top like smoke, but I just couldn't fit everything else below it.

Thank you for your comment! I did try out the horizontal idea because that was my original plan but I'm just not familiar enough with Adobe illustrator that it didn't come out the way I had hoped. I appreciate your feedback!

Thanks for your feedback and my space explorer card, Katie! I was worried that an octopus on a planet was a little too HUH?! Lol. I'm glad you appreciate the weirdness.

Thanks for the wonderful complement Katie. I love your illustrations so I really value your opinion. Hopefully the slightly bigger cape does the trick :)
