A tough question.......I opened them all and I am stuck on the first one. The one that you have on the blog now. You have done a wonderful job on all of them.

Nancy said...

They are all great looking. I think that my favourite is the 2nd one though.

Christina said...

And my favourite is A - love it!

Dottie said...

I have to say they're all great. If I had to pick one it would be B - so bright and reminds me of stamping. I'm new to your blog. Good Luck!!! Dottie

Ingen said...

I love D. It does not match the current background colour. So if you choose D it would be better to make the background some shade of blue.

Anonymous said...

i love your 2nd one it also reminds me of stamping ,Spring it's just so bright and stands out.Good luck to u!!!

debbie likes A & B - but if I must pick 1 - it's B!

Cindy Keery said...

Personally I prefer the last one, but they are all beautiful! You've done an amazing job with them!

alison said...

There all so beautiful. If I had to pick one it would be B. I love the colors and how bright it is.

cbouwmans said...

My favorite is D, but it was a difficult choice! I love E very much too!

Allison said...

Couldn't you switch it up from time to time (e.g. seasonally)? I love 'em all but I think A or E would be my choices (see I couldn't even pick one!).

Shelly said...

I like them all but I think E is my favorite!

Jackie said...

Wow, these really are lovely! I think out of all of them I would choose choice D, but they really are all wonderful!

Anonymous said...

Pick B and pick ME! Ha!

Inky Dreamz said...

I have to choose B because you can read it very easy. The others are very nice but a little too busy and you don't want it to take away from the rest of your blog, YKWIM? I also have to say that I really like the olivish background color with B as well. HTH. (Great job with all of them!)

Jennifer said...

I like them all, but I think B and E are my Fav!!!!
You did an excellent job. I only wish I were half that good! Good luck picking. I can not wait to see what you choose.

Melissa said...

A difficult choice because they all look great! My vote, would be for A or B. I guess ultimately, I would pick B. Just like the fun colors you picked there. I love your cards too! Thanks for the inspirations!

doverdi said...

They all look great to me but the one that really pops for me is D. You've got a tough decision ahead of you chosing between them all. lol

Pearlann66 said...

They are all lovely!
But i am drawn to choice C.

thanks for asking

Tracy.H said...

I just found your blog...Wow! Love your stuff...I will be back.

These are all great, but I think my favorite is the last one. :0)

Jessica (jessrose21) said...

I pick choice E! It's elegant and current and the design doesn't interrupt the blog title. I really like it!

Anonymous said...

Well they are all awesome but if I had to choose one; my favorite would be E. It's not too busy and displays the text nicely.

Sara

Cathy said...

love, Love, LOVE, the second one; B. It's artsy, but still fun!

Great candy by the way.

mays331 said...

I like E the best. It "looks" so stampin up!!!!

L8ybug2 said...

They are all great. I like the one you're using now with C being a close second.
~~Rita~~

Adelina said...

That's a tough decision because I like a couple of them. If I had to choose I'd say D - I love the blue and brown together and the flourishes.

Melissa said...

I really like B because I'm a bright colors kind of girl. But I think they are all beautiful.

Tough call, but B's my favorite. Yummy blog candy!! Pick me!!

Kelly Sampson AKA Emmiestamps said...

fav is D.

Dawn Mercedes said...

I like C and E...can I have 2 favorites?

Jackie said...

That is a difficult choice - they are all so pretty! My choice is the one you have up there now - A. It incorporates the green in the background but also give you other choices for accent colors or to change the background color as well.

Wonderful blog candy - and I do enjoy your blog a lot!

Kim said...

They're all fantastic but my favorite is A!

foodpartyfun said...

Wow...They are all really unique. I am choosing A as my favorite. You have as much talent designing blog banners as you do your cards. Thanks for posting often with you wonderful card ideas.

Pat

Corvus said...

I've got to vote for A. While all of them are gorgeous, A has the right mix of contrast and coordination to compliment the rest of the blog, if that makes any sense.

Rose Ann said...

All of them are really nice (you do great work!) My favorite is B, and second choice would be D.

Out of the Woods said...

Beautiful banners! I like E the best.

powell6 said...

My favorite is B, but E is pretty also.

I love your blog!

mjb coffee said...

Well, I really love C, A, and E in that order. Guess my first choice would be A. I find banners the size of C are not pleasing to work with, too big.

Y said...

Hmm...that's toughy...after staring at them for a while, I like A and C. Really couldn't decide between the two!

YM

Shannon said...

I personally like E and then A however, they all are great in their own way.

Peggy said...

I vote for "A" -- I love the dark warm brown. However, I do like the font of B the best. Great blog candy --- all are really pretty I don't think you can go wrong with any of them!!

Cher said...

They are all so wonderful but I think that I like c the best.

Tracy said...

I am a huge fan of "b" mostly because I think it reflects the style of your stamping. The colour combination is great and the font title is light and fun!

Thanks
Tracy

Renée said...

I really liked "E". You've had it up on your blog for the last while and I really thought it was unique!

Linda Yamakido said...

I love B & E,,, then there is A and C,,, lol,,, But B is first,,,

dini said...

I like A as well. :) Fun stuff!

DeStampin'Corner said...

I like the last one. They are all beautiful. You did a great job.

Leah said...

how beautiful! I really like them all! I would say D is probably my favorite - great for all seasons too! TFS

Stamp4hobby said...

That is so tough... I like C the best though...

StampingontheLakefront said...

My favorite is B - I like the colors, I like the size of the banner and the font - It's is really eye catching (pops!) like all of your cards!!!!!!!!!

dorothy erdely said...

i'm partial to green, so that's my choice!! they're all nice though!

Leslie Brown said...

Great job on all of them.
I think banner E is my favorite.
Thanks for sharing.
Leslie

janice said...

i am no use, i like them all, is it too hard to save them all and change them every 3 months? LOL sorry, i am no help, i love them all!

Kathy McD said...

Hands down...D....my fav color combo...teal and choc chip! Of course, they all are gorgeous, so any one of them will be great!

Angela said...

All are nice but I think I like A best. It is different than most I have seen.

Monica said...

Wow...tough choice. I think they're all great! I agree with Allison in that I think you should use them all and rotate them. If I had to pick one, though, I pick A!

sentimentsbydenise said...

Your blog banners are wonderful! It's so hard to pick one, but if I have to, I'd say C is my favorite, with A running a close second!
Thanks for sharing your art with us!

sjnteacher said...

LOL - I loved visiting your blog just to see what wonderful banner you would be using that day! My favorite is D.

kelly said...

I am going to have to vote for b or c.

gremhog said...

Easy....E But I hav eto say that C came in at a close 2nd. Still voting for E but I'll be back at your blog no matter which heading you select.

Bonnie said...

Love the richness of banner A.

Anonymous said...

I like c, although they are all so cool. Liann M.

Chris Muxlow said...

I like them all. The one I like best is B because your words stamp out and it is easy to read. It seems to fit the style of your stamping.

Crystal said...

I like the last 2 the best....but if you pick the last one, I like how all the others say "ink stamp create", I'd add that to the last one if that is your choice. BTW your candy is incredible!

shelley said...

Hello Ana,
I love them all, but I think D is the one. It flows so beautifully and the color is rich.
Shelley

BlogHore said...

Wow that's alot of nice blog candy. I think the top banner is my favourite - the flowers are so nice and colourful. They are all beautiful (I would be happy with any of them!)

Happy St. Paddy's Day to you too!

Michelle said...

So hard to choose just one but I like D.

chuckandjan said...

Wow! Tough choice. I think I'd have to go with C - it is the most distinctive of them all. Great blog and great blog candy. Have a great day

Nancy said...

I love Green. So B and C stand out to me, with B being alittle bit more lively. Thanks for asking,
NMartin

Anonymous said...

I like them all but if I had to choose I guess I'd go with "D" but "a" is a close second, love the colors!

karinsrj said...

Tough call...but I'll go with A. Any of them would be beautiful.

Karin

Karen said...

I really like them all as well. I like C & D best. I agree with someone else that said maybe switch with the season (not sure how hard that would be code-wise though)! Very nice job on all of them!!

~Lana B.~ said...

All are great...could ya switch them out every week or so? JK
If I had to pick just one it would be "D"
But don't forget...what REALLY makes your blog great isn't the banner...it's what's inside!!! I totally love your blog so keep up the great work!!
~Lana B.~

monika/buzsy said...

Looking at all 4, I think D is my favorite. Love blue and brown together, and I am in my swirl era... :o) TFS!

Peggy (Favorite Grandma) said...

tough question! Love them all, but I have to say E. Great blog and even better blog candy!

Wackie said...

I like "D" for the colors if no other reason.

Anonymous said...

Wow...they all are nice but I would have to say my fav is B. TFS :o)

As I sit in front of my keyboard, anxiously waiting for yahoo to load, I check my in box and what do I see, but I have mail. Could it be? Oh my but a post from Ink A Stamp! yeah! What beautiful homemade creation will it be, but to my suprise, Blog Candy! I pick D!

Kristine said...

I like B. I like the colours, nice and spring like.

Peggy Maier said...

I love A. - wonderful color & the flowers just seem to pop! (also like D, but not as much as A)

LSN2 said...

My favorite is B (probably because of the bright Spring colors). You've done a wonderful job on all of them. I can't even imagine the work involved with creating a banner like these.

Linda

Cordero Fam said...

They are all adorable. I like "D" its bright and cheery! Like YOU!

Geralyn said...

I like all of them but if I had to pick one it would probably be A.

Anonymous said...

Wow, no wonder you're having a hard time deciding--they're all great. I guess if I had to choose just one, it would be "B". It seems the "happiest", somehow!

My favorite is definitely B--looks like it was created with stamps and is fresh and fun. Love you blog with all its wonderful creations. TFS

crazy4mycrafts said...

I like A!! They are all great though!

Terri D. said...

Hello Ana, I love all the banners for different reasons but if I have to pick one, I would say my favorite one is D. I love paisley and the brown/blue color combo. Have a great weekend!

Anonymous said...

I would have to go with B as I love color. You do amazing cards in sooo much color I feel your banner needs tons of color!
Cindy

----- Alison Mewer Cowan ----- said...

I like B. Easy to read! Great job!

tgrdina said...

Firsst of all...I like them all. You have done a great job on all of them. BUT...if I had to choose only one...I would choose B! It looks like something I would stamp for myself. Also, I love the smaller cursive font. Really cute. Definitely -- I like B!

robin said...

i love B
its happy , bright and very inviting.

Carolyn S. said...

Ana,

I'm thinking D, although they are all nice, there's just something about that blue and brown.

Anouk Martin said...

All of them are great, but my favorite one is C. So pretty!

Sue Kment said...

E-so very classy!

jadell said...

I think the first one (A) is most like your style. :) Great blog!

Julie said...

Oh my, this is tough. I think you should save them all and change them out seasonally. That way they all get the attention they deserve. But you would still have to choose one for right now. B looks springy to me, But I LOVE D! ... Ok I am no help!

Judie P. said...

I love "B". It's really very lovely!

Heather said...

I absolutely LOVED "B" It is so bright and pretty. "A" was in a close second though. Did you do all these yourself? Amazing work!

Heather S.

stampin_melissa said...

Wow, all are so nice! I did rank them to how I liked them. Here goes:

C, D, E, B, A

Now, I'll go through the comments to see other's opinions. :D

Linda Shaw said...

Easy for me because "D" is my current favorite color combination. In fact I'm redoing my living room with aqua and cocoa:) Great Blog! Linda SS

Viv (VivLyn) said...

I like the one you have up there now. The other ones look too much like other blogs at the moment.

Whitney said...

They are all great - but I like A the best!

scfranson said...

I have to say B, it really catches my eye.
Claudia F.

Anonymous said...

They are all great, but I really like the one you have up now ... so it is A for me.

Lisa Henke said...

I love B, the colors and the design look great! But honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

Selina said...

My first choice is B, but then I liked A too. Good luck with choosing, they are all great!

Joy said...

I'd say option "E" is the best. They are all beautiful, but I like the style and the fact that your title is very clear on option "E".

Natasha said...

I like C because it is unlike other banners I have seen. I like D and E, however I find E too big, and D is like some others I've seen. The greens, the mix of circles and lines just pop out to me.

loislane said...

I like A. But they are all nice! A is just a little more colorful.

Cris said...

It's a toss up between B & C, but I choose B. Love the retro look of it and the name stands out, but with a softer look.

Melissa said...

I love A!

Cindy Haffner said...

I like the last one D. They are all very pretty.

Kimkstamps@yahoo.com said...

Ana1 They are all wonderful! I am choosing C as first option but if it's notto much trouble I'd consider changing , rotating weekly or monthly even. I love your work and your Blog give away goodies are awesome as always. I already subscribe to your feeds. One of the first things I do in the morning is check for new work from ou. :}
Right after the kiddos get on the school bus and before I head out the door to pre scool. Whatever you choose will be beautiful! KimK

Jen G. said...

You are sooooo talented!! I love checking your blog everyday to see what you've created next, you are such an inspiration to me! - It's really hard to choose but I think I like the one you have now: A.

Anonymous said...

Since I love blue and brown together, I think I like D best. Although they are all very cute.

Lori Faeber

imchatty (Denise) said...

Sooooo hard to choose. I love them all but D and E are my favs. Can I pick two favs? That probably doesn't help you much either.

robin said...

I like B, because it is just open and airy, easy to read and seems light and fun, like a lot of your work. I love your cards!

sheila w. said...

they are all really great but I love D

Jeanna said...

I think B is my fave with D running a close second

Kirsten said...

My vote is B!

Dina said...

All of your banners are great, but if you're making me pick just one.... it would have to be A... no, wait B.... okay, I choose A.
Dina Anderson

Sue said...

Hi Ana -
When I opened the blog I thought to myself that I really liked the banner that you have up now, BUT . . . after seeing the others, I would have to go with the second one from the top. It is so springy!!

Monika said...

They all looks very nice ,but for me its A

Wife2TJ said...

I really love B and I think it goes beautifully with the background color of your blog.

InspiredByInk said...

Even though I love the colors in D, I think my fav is B!! Love them all really. GREAT job ana!

bobbie

laura j said...

The banners are all very nice but I just love the color used in D. Great job!

Anonymous said...

My vote is for A! The colors are eye catching! I think the other 3 are nice, but have too much white in thebackground.

stampnthyme said...

Oh my! I see why you are having a difficult time making a decision...they are all fantastic! I would vote for 'C' because I love that the flowers come in from an unusual angle, and in my opinion, it makes you 'take notice'..and it is crisp and clean looking...very professional looking in appearance. Gosh, it will be exciting to see which one you choose.

tamimoreno said...

Wow. They all would make good choices!!
I like both A and B with A being slightly more favored.
Nice job though - they are all great!

Anonymous said...

They all look very nice and pleasing to the eye, but I think I'd have to pick "b" first, then "c", then "a"

Susan C. said...

First of all, I love your blog!!! and your cards. They give me inspiration to create....so lets get to the question. It's a toss up between D or A. I am partial to D as I like the colour combination of blue and brown. It's time for a change of color. It's spring!!!

Kathy Tucker said...

I like E which I think is your ?original one? I would just add some color to it - like maybe pink and dark brown instead of only the shades of brown. I will tell you - I don't think that you can go wrong with any of them

AnneMarie said...

I think B for now... it reminds me of Spring!!!

each one has a different feel for a different season..

my 6 yo likes the blue and tan- that reminds me of summer.. and the beach!

Julie said...

I love D - love teeh blue and brown!! So pretty and fresh!

tbreanna said...

It's between B and D, i've been checking out your blog and was really dissapointed when you change your bannerm anyway, really tough choice but i think i'll go for the B...mmhhppp, D, B, definitely B :) Goodluck!

tyrymom29 said...

Personally I really like A and C ......If I had to pick it would be C.........LOve the colors.Thanks for sharing!!!!!

Stamper Gail said...

I really like D, but even more so I have to vote for E. It's just too pretty not to use.

Michele said...

I like A the best.
I think darker tittles stand out and catch the eye!
My second choice would be E with the dark outline.

Michelle said...

I like all the banners, but I would have to say that A and D are my favorites!
-michelle

Beth said...

Um, there are several I like: A&D. If I have to chose just one, I think I might pick D. Tough decision.

diana said...

I love the one you have on your blog...it reminds me of chocolate!
