Well HELLO -- finally! -- Miss Kirsten Evans, and welcome!!!

Love the avatar, by the way.  The pawprint is a great touch; is it a photo of the avatar bear's footpad?  Your bears are turning out really great!  WHy, I remember when you were just a shy beginner... (like I should talk :))

I'm glad you came by and am sure you'll enjoy it here.  It's a great bunch.

Welcome Kirsten,

I see you're a fun loving person.  You'll get along swimmingly here with all of us wonky ducks.

bear_cool Your parting comment, I like the accent.  Is that So.Cal Hip Hop, or Barbados Reggae, or?? bear_cool

A Welcoming Bear Hug
PS: good looking avatar and bear, and Shelli, you are way beyond observant to notice the likeness to the bear's paw pad. (Girl, you rock!!)

Hey hey! Laure, Nice to meet you! :)
The accent would be So. Cal 7th grader... (I teach middle school :o)
Thanks for the compliment on the avantar. I love making banners and graphics and until recently made them for other forums, not bear making stuff. I'm a avantart convert!
Shelli is very observant or just really checking out my avantar!:lol:
I love my bear paws, kinda a trademark, ya know... so I include it on my banners/graphics.
Can't wait for more time to catch up on this site!

Hey, Kirsten, nice to see you here, took you long enough! ;)
Of course, us cool bear_cool people hang out at all the hip bear boards!:D
Your avatar is fantastic!!! I'm green!!

I guess it's time for me to start learning how to make my own snifty avatars! Laura Lynn made the one I had been using with my scrap bear and black background and I LOVE it!! (Thank you, Laura!!) I only changed it 'cause I get bored really quick!:rolleyes: I just can't figure out how to use the JASC Paint Shop Pro 8 software I have. I watch the tutorial but it goes too fast for my eyes to relay the info to my brain and actually retain it!! bear_ermm Has anyone used this software? Buying any other is out of the question so I have to figure this one out!!! I've been avoiding it long enough. ***SIGH***

Hugs,
Daphne

Daphne, I use Jasc psp 9, same as 8. Thats how I make my banners and avantar. If you'd like, I could walk you through it. It all about borders, and layers, time patience and getting it all lined up!! bear_original I never read tutorials...
