Hai Schatz

Do you have any image editing software? Such as GIMP, Photoshop, Elements, etc?

Don't worry if you don't, that's just the first step Razz

Put the purse away!

The best one for learners to use is GIMP. And it's free. You can get it from here:
Click

There is also a detailed introduction to GIMP which should be useful. It could be a bit of reading, but it's worth it.
Click Here for the English Version
Click Here for the German version

GIMP as Scott has mentioned is one of the best for beginners to start out on, you will find as you get more use to using the functions there that you may need to get more brushes and fonts but they are fairly easy enough to download.
A couple of sites I find useful for this are dafont.com for different fonts and deviantart.com for brushes. You can also find the odd tutorial on deviantart if you are ever game to try something new.
Otherwise as one great artist told me just muck around and see what you can come up with, you will soon find a style that suits you.

Good to see you are having fun with it Schatz.

Just a question though on your first sig, did you want that white background or where you hoping for a invisible background?

Nice to see you have become a GIMP user.
I will soon have a gimp tut out.

It is a little above beginner but its definitely worth trying

if you want the background to be invisible then save the file as .png if you save it as .jpg you will always end up with a white background.

Surprised Could this be the legendary thing they call "motivation"?

I've been trying for years and so far you're better at this than me... This means... I fail. Sad


Glad to see you're enjoying yourself! Very Happy
