Banners to Support "Light the Night" in Honor of Brianna

Today I read Tammy's story about her sweet daughter Brianna, who had T-Cell Leukemia. Every year Tammy's family participates in the "Light the Night" walk and does a fundraiser in honor of Brianna. (See this link for the full story: "Light the Night" for Breezy).

I was very touched by Brianna's story and thought I'd create some animated banners for Tammy to hopefully spread the word about the fundraiser. I'm so glad that she liked the banners! See this link for Tammy's store: Bella Bean's Knits & Things.

Charity Banners for Katie's Auction

One of the ladies on one of my forums (Katie from "Ewe Need It") is going through a rough time right now. Her husband has a tumor next to his heart and the family is having a lot of financial problems due to the surgeries.

Another kind lady (Amber from "Fairytale Boutique") is setting up auctions to help Katie and her family.

I wanted to do something to help so I designed a couple of animated banners to help announce the auctions. I made them to match Amber's shop and also included the cute little lamb from Katie's shop.

Here's the 468x60 standard web-sized banner:

And this is the 150x50 DiaperSwappers siggy-sized banner:

Note: I'm putting these animated banners in the public domain. Anyone is welcome to copy them and use them in advertising the auctions for Katie. :)

Here are some instructions I wrote up for getting the blinkies to link in DiaperSwapper's Signatures:

* Right click on the 150x50 size button above, choose "save image as" and save it to your computer, then upload it to your Photobucket account

* Go into your Photobucket account, find the button, and copy the code for "Direct Link"

* Log in to DiaperSwappers, go to "User CP" on the top left bar and choose "Edit Signature"

* Scroll down to "Edit Signature"

* Use the following code as an example of how to make a clickable link:


* Copy the code above, paste it into your DS Signature Editor, and remove the + signs before the [+url] and [+IMG] codes above

* Replace the part after "url=" with the url of your HC. Be sure to keep the quotations there

* Replace the part after [IMG] with the "Direct Link" image code from your Photobucket account

* Be sure to leave all the rest of the coding in place (the [] symbols, etc)

* Click "Preview Signature" and your button should now click to the correct place!

* When finished, click "Save Signature"

Hoping the buttons bring lots of customers to Amber's shop and help raise money for Katie and her family.

Here are the newest animated banners for the "Creative Mamas" congo. We're starting our Halloween stockings this week!

I thought a little bouncing pumpkin would be a fun way to bring some movement into the banners and I'm so glad they turned out so cute!

Frames for "Stylin Baby Cloth"

Jessica loved her animated banner! She wanted to know if I could create some blank frames with her shop name that she could add her pictures to. I use Photoshop and it's really easy for me to use frames; still trying to figure out if you can get the same type of effect in other software editing programs. :)

Here are a few rough drafts; click to view larger:
