I just updated my old CSS Sprites article yesterday, and I thought it would be kind of fun to ask everyone to share sprites that they have created themselves. Let’s make a quick giveaway out of it too!

I’ve finished my copy of Dan Cederholm’s Handcrafted CSS, which was very good. My copy is now of course slightly used, but I figured why not pass it on to someone else who can learn from it. It’s the version that comes with the DVD video as well. I’ll choose one random person to send it to.

To enter, just leave a link in the comments below directly linking to your sprite image. If you have never created a sprite, find an interesting one on the web and link directly to that. Make sure to leave your real email when commenting so I can contact you if you win. I’ll select a winner next week.

Pop it open and mouse around things on the site, trying to find things that use background images. Hover over the URL path to the background image and see if there is more than meets the eye going on. This is one of mine looks like in Firebug:
