Coming From September... Got A Cry For A Blinkie!

Hiya ladies!

So I received a post with a cry for help for a blinkie for you guys and I figured hey, why not Smile

I can probably get something done up this week for you guys since you're all in need of one since August will be here before you know it, but before I can do that, I need some info from you guys.

~ Are there any twins on the board? If so, are they boys, girls, mixed or surprises? I made up a special blinkie for the one lady on September who is having twin girls so it's no big deal to whip one up for anyone here.

~ Does anyone have any still images they might like to see used on the blinkie? What about a suggestion for an image? I asked this over on September and the suggestions I got I had already seen/thought of, but it's nice to have another boards input, especially since I don't know any of you Smile

Here's an example of the June 2010 blinky I made, and here's the September one, although you've already seen it in Lauren's siggy Smile

I don't know how to use an animated image to turn it into a full animated blinky, but my hubby said that if someone was to give me an animated image, I can take a frame of it to use for the still part, so feel free to offer up any image and I'll see what I can do :).

If there's any other info you think I may need to know, please do let me know all the info asap so I can get to work Smile

OH I just realized that my September blinky is way bigger than my June one so if you have a size preference let me know. It doesn't matter space wise since it doesn't make the html bigger, but some people dont like the bigger images. I didn't realize my September one was so huge till I just saw it next to the June one lol. Oops.

Hey there,
Thanks so much for replying!!!

We definitely need one. Wink

We have one twin mommy who is having 2 boys, and one triplet mommy with 1 boy and 2 girls.
We have a bunch of each gender, and we also have some team green surprises if its not too much to make one for them too Smile
In one of the past blinkie threads (should still be on the main page, I will go bump it for you) someone posted a cute bumblebee gif... I dont know if you can use it or a still frame of it, but thats all I can think of right now.

I'd love something with a cute bumblebee, and maybe even those dashes showing where it has flown? (like in winnie the pooh)

I think having the month and the year is important ...

I prefer the smaller sized one, but I'll take either or. lol.

Thats all my input for now! Thanks SOOOO much for volunteering to help out! Smile

Triplets!!! WOW! Congrats to that mommy! Making one for her and the twin mommy is no big deal, and yep, I will make a boy, girl and surprise one because not everyone can/wants to know what they're having till the actual delivery :).

I will make the blinky big then resize it till it's a smaller one like the June one. Now that I think of it, the June one was small because we were Junebugs, so I was able to incorperate both the month and the name into one, rather than have 2 seperate things like our September Sapphires. Of course, the longer text kind of makes for making things a bit bigger too, but I will play with it till it looks not too bad :).

I will see what I can do to have the dashes to show the bee flying away, however I can't make any promises lol. I am currently using my laptop since my desktop isn't working for some reason and till hubby has time to really check into the problem and fix it, the laptop is my computer and not all that easy for tinkering with. I could use hubbys computer but I don't like cluttering up his stuff with my stuff and I like to keep all my images etc in case something needs changing etc lol.

And you're all very welcome, glad to help Smile

You're all welcome!

If you have found an image you'd like me to consider, it can be gif/jpeg, although if it isn't, I can save it as such. I work mostly with gif/jpegs so it's just easier for me to keep going with the same kind of file :). I'm off to look for some bee images now and see what I can find Smile
