It's always Christmastime for greeting card designers. Year round we find ourselves getting in the holiday spirit to find inspiration, which is even more difficult for me since I don't celebrate the holiday to begin with. But, I always seem to find a new slant on Christmas designs, and these are the ones I submitted a couple of weeks ago to Minted's challenge. Make sure to visit the site to see all of the great entries, and if you're so inclined, vote for a few while you're there. And, keep your fingers crossed that one or two of these make the cut!
It's really VOTING time! Time to vote for the birthday party submissions at Minted. My latest design submissions are here and waiting for you to vote for them. Click on each design below and you'll be taken to that page. You need to have a Minted account to vote, but they have a beautiful product offering, and you can support me!
And, just in case you're wondering about all of the challenges, I haven't won anything yet, but I feel like I'm getting so much closer to a win. Only two of the challenges in which I've participated have been announced. I'm still waiting to hear on five or maybe even six now. But, having the deadlines and parameters has been so motivating. And, whatever doesn't make the Minted line will be available for purchase in my Etsy store. So, either way, it's a win/win situation. I've also learned a great deal from looking at all of the other designers' work, getting their feedback and pushing myself to try new and different things. Go vote! And, as soon as I get some good news, you'll all be the first to know.
Next challenge—journals for Mother's Day, Father's Day and Graduation, and they're due next week!
I think the next challenge has already been open for a week—this time it's children's party invitations—but I haven't even started yet. For some reason, I seem to be most motivated just before the deadline. I snuck these graduation designs in just under the wire. the party invitation deadline is next week, so if you know of any big theme trends in children's parties (I've been out of the loop on that for awhile) shoot me a message! Thanks for looking and voting!
Mosey on over to Minted.com and take a look at these and all of the other great designs. All you need to do is click on each image above, and you'll be there. While you're there, please cast some votes for me! Much appreciated!
