Watch My Banner Bloom!

S7300300My new “stampin’ pretty” banner is finally finished and loaded up for the virtual world.  I’m so excited.  The background color will change seasonally (reflecting Stampin’ Up colors), so please stop back.  It took over a month from the day I scribbled it out to completion.  Did you catch the teensy bit of animation?  It only happens once so you  may have to do a “refresh.”  I’m not big into “screaming” banners but thought a little pop would be fun.  I also am showing off my new watermark, designed by Nicole Seitler of The Inkblog, an amazing stamper and web designer.  It was entirely her idea to integrate the tulip from my logo.  Done!  She’s very economically priced for those of us who don’t want to fiddle with a watermark (or attempted and gave up, like me).  She also designs banners, logos, buttons and more (although she didn’t design my banner because it was already in progress).  I plan to have her customize my chat and other buttons, too.  I want to credit SCS member stampertammy for recommending Nicole on my desperate forum post for help with my watermark.

Hugs and Pretties . . . .


P. S.  OK, one more thing to boast about since I’m on an “all about me” roll . . . I have added a little tulip favicon (in the address bar with my web address).  I just love the little touches 🙂
