^the "team" text is a bit hard to read with the overlapping, might be good if you could do it vertically on the right. also, the "Ty & Me" might be better moved down a bit so it's easier to read. also a border/shdow would be nice, but overall i like it :)

kinda crazy with the overlapping text, would be fine if they were the same font, and the front black with the white in the back and faded, if you know what I mean.

very cute, the colors go well, but the blue text is hard to read. also, you seem to be using that style of heart a lot, it gets pretty repetitive, but it is kinda your "trademark"

same thing with the text as in the second one. kinda strange effect on the whole banner with the pattern. the banner in general is a bit to "busy". oh, and what's with the random rose? o.O

LOVE this one, but the top text is hard to read in black. maybe try a blue or green? also might've been better without so much of the grainy effect.

Overall you've been improving A LOT. I've been figuring out GIMP bit by bit, so you can PM me if you want.

Sorry if I come off a little harsh, and remember this is just based on my opinion, you don't have to listen to me, and don't take anything I say personally.

Not a big fan of the placement of the heart or the text, especially where it says "the perfect team". The shape's a little weird, too. Try making it more of rectangle shape, the other ones on here. Rectangles fit best under posts.

I don't like the text or border on this one, but I like the idea of blurring everything but him. I would stick with a simple, thin black border, and a less complicated font in a different place. And again, I would change the shape to rectangle.

I like the idea of this one, but I don't like the fonts or font colors at all, or the placement or the text. I would also suggest blending them together, instead of just putting them next to each other. Better shape, though.

Eh, I don't really like this one, but I tend to not like this style of banners, I usually prefer ones that are blended or cut. The swirly overlay thing makes it kinda dizzifying.

Not a big fan of the fonts on this one, and again, the shape is weird. The picture's a little grainy, which wouldn't be so bad if the font was more faded to match it.

No prob :) Some people are very easily offended, and I don't know you that well so I didn't want you to take anything I said the wrong way.
