I'm quite chuffed with myself...and whilst I'll more than likely change the pic in the button eventually....I used a tutorial from here to create and put the button together (I used Picasa to edit my chosen pic, and I have hosted it at Flickr, just so you know) and Voila....over there on the right, you can see my new blog button in all it's glory.....now to see what else I can come up with for the image on the button.....because that's going to be whatever I use as my blog button for a little online business venture I'm planning! Please feel free to grab the code and pop my button on your blog. If you do, please come and leave a comment so I can get excited all over again!
I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you so much for the tutorial Heidi, the only thing I had a few issues with, was getting the box of html below the button...but once I got over my laziness, and typed it in (you can't copy and paste one line from an image....who knew? lol) it worked.
