Hey y'all, it's Fridaaaaaaaay and a perfect day for Minted to kick-off voting for their latest Design Challenge: Eat, Drink, and Be Merry Holiday Party Invitations.

I love participating in Minted's design challenges. They push me beyond my limits, help me work outside my comfortable box, and keep me creatively sharp. So, when Minted announced this next challenge, I turned on some Christmas tunes and spent a few days hunkered down and designing away. Designing always take me so much longer than I'd expect, as I work, rework, throw away, redesign, tweak, finalize... and the cycle continues. (Designers, can I get a witness??) But, the grueling long hours are worth it, and I'm excited to see how these little guys do in the competition. 

If you like what you see here, you can vote for my designs on Minted's website. Just click on the button below each image to take you to the voting page. Thanks a bunch my friends, and enjoy your weekend!
