Leaving the West behind

I decided to give myself a Thanksgiving present this morning and created my a new blog banner in between waiting for responses on designs that went out this morning to customers for feedback. This is a much more mod design than my last banner which was very old-West themed, and I like the bright cheerful nature of it.
What do you think?

Diane's Stampin' Pups

Some of you know that I have a real soft spot for dogs, so when Diane asked if I could help her design a banner that would incorporate her love of stamping and her dogs, I jumped at the chance! I was a little worried because Diane was SO easygoing that she didn't really give me detailed guidelines. She did give me colors and requested a clean layout, though, and that was a great place for me to start. Since they say that dogs leave paw prints on your heart, I thought the imbedded heart in the paw print was a cute angle to work with. I'm so glad I used it because in response to her first preview of her banner, Diane warmed my heart when she said the paw print is the cutest thing she's seen! She had also asked for input on a tagline, and as I was doing the build of her banner, the phrase just popped into my head.

Be sure to take some time and check out Diane's blog and enjoy some of her cute projects!

Sherry's Stamped Treasures

Sherry was so easy to work for! She wanted minimal colors and a clean, professional appearance. I had a ton of fun making this banner (and I have to send a thanks out to my husband for his consulting and advising on this one)! This is very definitely not the direction I started out with for this banner, and it took me several tries that Sherry never even got to see, but I am so pleased with this design. Then, Sherry made my day when she emailed to tell me that she actually gasped when she first saw it. :)

When you have time, please stop in and check out Sherry's blog. She has some cute projects!
