Wow! What a great giveaway!! I really like the first banner (although they are all fabulous!). I've been cleaning house all morning and about to do some art before going to the dentist... Have a great day!! Love, Silke

I am going to have to say I like banner B the most! It presents a lot of emotion with more people in the sketch...I was drawn to that one the most when I was glancing over them.

hi there-
it's so hard to choose. i'm debating between 1 and 2.maybe #1 because it's new-for the new year :)

andrea creates said...

of course i follow....
and i'll mention the giveaway on today's post on my blog :)

Fun giveaway, we would like to win :)

Char said...

i'm thinking #1 - i like the cleanliness of #3 but it's almost too clean and sterile, it doesn't convey the warmth that i get from visiting here

Earth Mama said...

Oh my I love the drawing of the mama and children. LOVE it! What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks for popping over at my blog today.

Tara said...

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I can't wait to dig into your blog. What a great giveaway! I like banner (a) but it wasn't an easy choice.

Oh what a great give away!
I like banner B the most.
I remember that I loved it when you used it.
It represents the warmth and the heart of you two and of course your great drawings.

Hello Char!

Thank you for hosting yet another GREAT Giveaway! :o)

So here it goes... it's been a difficult one, but I would pick n° 1. It's something new, but a little less 'cold' than n°3.
And I love the cosiness of those 2 friends chattin'!
It really looks like what it feels like to come here for a read & a chat!
:o)

*hearts*
and have fun!

Hi Char! Such a cool giveaway (I can picture a portrait of Chanchu -my son/cat- wonderfully done by you). I'd say B, I agree with herzensart is the most well-balance. In second place I'd choose A (I prefer the handwriten title rather than the computer-made one). Many interesting comments and suggestions here! Love, Flor

Krista said...
