New Season, New Banner

Thanks to the many nice, encouraging words about the bear and chicken on my last blog banner update, I've been playing around with story ideas for them. Since the weather is so nice now, its time for a Spring look.
Bye bye, Winter! (and the old banner.)

And a thank you to Julissa for giving me the Sunshine Award! Check out her beautiful children's illustrations over at her blog.

P.S.-Happy Easter!

What a great idea telling a little story in your blog banner and your characters are so cute. Maybe they need to step into a picture book too....:)
