Good morning and welcome to the Christmas Is For Kids Banner Blog Hop hosted by Ellen at Card Monkey.  We are so glad you could join us!

If you just came from Ellen at Card Monkey, you are right on track.  If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with her.

Today and tomorrow there are talented women that have each made at least one Christmas-themed banner that will be donated to hang in the rooms of special needs children at Pediatric Specialty Care in Bucks County, PA.  I'm so honored I get to be a part of this hop with a group of fabulous ladies who never cease to amaze me!

Here is the lineup in case you get lost.  These lovely ladies are the first day of the hop.

I'm so excited to be showing you the banner I made!  It was so much fun to make! Sorry for the bad quality picture, I can't seem to find my camera!

Paper is from Recollections Jolly & Bright and from my scraps
Cricut cartridges-Birthday Bash and Paper Doll Dress Up

For my blog candy, I will pick 5 hoppers who comment on this post and donate a card in their name to the children.  I will announce the names on Wednesday, November 16th.  Please stop over my Facebook page to say hello. 

And there's BLOG CANDY to be had!!  THANK YOU to our generous sponsors who have provided prizes to those who hop along. Here are our sponsors and their prizes:

One winner will receive four free digi-images of
their own choosing from! will provide one winner with a code

Beautiful ribbons, embellishments, charms and more are on the site.  They'll be giving a voucher valued approx $32 USD.
All hoppers are eligible to win.  Here's how: 
Follow the blog and comment on as many projects as you choose -- the more blogs where you comment and follow, the more chances you have to win. There's just one catch: please actually comment on the project, which shows you've looked at the project, not just cut/pasting random comments ("CUTE! TYFS") only to win the prize. will choose the winners, subject to verification that winners have met the above-stated criteria. 

Thanks so much for hopping by and a great big thank you to Ellen for allowing me to take part in this very special hop.  My post will stay up until tomorrow (Sunday) morning.  Please stop back at Ellen's blog on tomorrow because there will be 18 more fabulous ladies with some amazing banners.
