I've had a bit of a makeover!

Hi everyone, I hope you noticed that I am sporting a new look. You didn't notice? Haven't you had your coffee today yet? LOL.

For ages I've wanted to make my own banner and apart from lacking the energy to get round to it I was also lacking the knowhow. Then I found Brenda's blog where she shared how to make one and.......ta da! It wasn't too hard at all, but I had to be quick as Picnik, the photo editting site she recommends, is closing down tomorrow. 

Anyway, let me know what you think - do the pics in the banner look bright enough?

Hi Carole, your banner looks great, am very impressed you did it yourself. Just popping across fdrom Sweet Stampin' to say thinks for noticing about the post dated post! It's done purposely like that so it stays at the top of the blog & is easy for peeps to find when they visit, otherwise it gets lost under the Sunday spotlight post. I do appreciate you letting us know though as we frequently don't spot our own mistakes & always helpful to have someone eagle eyed looking out for us! :-) xx

P.S. Your deer card just below this post has absolutely breathtaking colouring!

Oh Carole I love it and it's noticeable right away....now I have had a try at this...on my own....it did not work out and now you say the site has closed to....booo...hooo...lol...sure there are other ways, but I'm not that clever with computers...lol...

Glad your up to speed with the viewing....I think 3 more episodes and we will know all...lol...from your square eyed pal...lol...xxx

OMG!!!!! This is absolutely FABULOUS, Carole!!!!! Your artwork is sooo gorgeous and I'm so glad you have displayed it up front and center!!!! I tell ya...your banner is the prettiest in all of blogland!!!!
My banner is about three years old and needs to be changed but I'm just too lazy...LOL!!! Hope all is well with you....we have been busy outside. George bought some fruit trees and tomato plants so we have been planting...sure hope it stays warm and we don't get a late frost!!! Have a great day...Hugs!!

Hi Carole, It is Cathy. I love the new look. I finally posted something after months. We had some remodeling done and everything was crammed in my craft room. Your coloring is so wonderful. I am impressed :)
