Looking for a "New" Sign

Well I was it again. I shut the store and started to try to add the rewards- points module, again. This time I approached it more methodically . Prior to shutting the store down, I create folders within folders (nested them) for the files, went to the ftp, downloaded to the right area (as I am now wiser to my last mistake), copied this nested folder and worked on the copied one - so I had two sets of the files - one unaltered and one altered. It took a couple of hours and I altered them according to a fix - which did not work :(, so I went back to the original guys code and WHA_LA - it worked. Well it mainly works. There were/are a couple bugs such as the guy designed it to be only a discount scheme and not for people to be able to use the points to pay completely for an item, and hence on the shop forum he sort of say bugger off if you wish it to be used that way, but in a very nice way :) So I had to try and work a way around that with sort of some success resulting in notes to customers on bills hoping they will not get too annoyed at my lack of coding ability. Anyway with my rewards-points module installed I was looking for a "new" sign - no sense doing it and not promoting it . Finding a new animated sign which does not bring on a fit is not easy. Just looking at them was making me feel ill, I understand you wish to draw the eye but it would be so nice if the creators will make the blinking, twirling and rolling slower. Maybe it is just my age catching up with me...
However at a site (www.gifanimations.com) I saw the little monster and I just had to post it :)

Hi, I just had to tell you that I just got myGrafico e-newsletter in my mailbox..... OMG, I love your new featured digi stamp set "Little Men"....... my resolve to not purchase anymore stamps (trad. or digi) until I've used every single stamp at least once is slowly fading, lol!

Haha Micki you are so funny. I am glad you like them :) I plan to add some to my site at some time with a bit more details and paraphernalia. For art aimed at stamping I decided to cut down on extra details so that the designers will have more freedom to added things that they may wish to give the card their personal touch, if desired (one of the jackets will have lots of twirls and things :).
