Love Bugs Banners for Kids Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and the Love Bugs Banner Blog Hop!  I'm so glad you can join us.

Thirty Eight very talented crafty people have come together for a two day hop (Friday, January 6th and Saturday, January 7th) to showcase handmade banners that will be donated to the children at Pediatric Specialty Care. The hope of these banners is that they bring smiles to these children's faces and awareness of Pediatric Specialty Care to all those that hop along.

The “Love Bugs Banner for Kids” Hop has some awesome sponsors and prizes to give away to all those that hop along and leave comments. The more blogs you visit and leave comments at, the more chances you have of winning. That means if you hop through all 20 blogs each day and leave a comment on each blog then you are in the drawing 40 times!

Our Generous Sponsors are:

Jellypark Digital Stamps will award 2 free digi-images to one winner.

K Andrews Designs has donated a stamp set to one winner.

Robyn's Fetish will donate FIVE digital images of the winner's choice as a prize!

This is my third banner blog hop and I'm loving each time I get to make a banner for these amazing kids.  I can't tell you how much I love doing this.  I could make a banner each month for the kids lol.

I love this banner....clean and simple.  I hope the kids will love it.

Paper is from Recollections Kraft cardstock and Soda Pop Collection
Birthday Bash, Plantin Schoolbook and Simply Charmed Cricut cartridges
White gel pen
Ribbon is from my stash

Here is another picture of the banner close up so you can see some detail...

Thank you so much for hopping by and a special thank you to Ellen for allowing me to be a hop stop.  I can't wait for the next one!

Remember to start back at Ellen's page tomorrow for another talented set of ladies.

Your next stop is Haidee.
