Bunnies & Blossoms For Kids Blog Hop Day 2

Sketch Blog Hop Day 2 here

Welcome to the Bunnies and Blossoms Banner Hop for Special Needs Children Day 2.

Yesterday and today (March 24-25), 30+fantastic papercrafters have come together to create Spring-themed banners.They will then donate these banners to Ellen (CardMonkey), who works as Admissions Coordinator at Pediatric Specialty Care (PSC),

PSC is a long-term care facility for special needs children who are medically-fragile and/or technologically-dependent. The babies, children and youths at PSC range in age from birth to 21, and are admitted from all over the country.
Some are infants, born prematurely and before their lungs have had a chance to mature. Others have serious birth defects,illnesses or injuries from accidents that cause them to need tender loving care in a home-like environment -- many for their lifetimes.

Our banners are meant to cheer the young patients, their families, and the staff at PSC. To see Day 1 banner, click here. Here is the other banner I made to decorate a child's room.
I have so much fun making banners for the kids :)

Papers are from my stash/scraps
Paper piecing pattern is Treasure Box Designs Funny Bunny
Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge
Diamond Stickles
White and Black gel pen
Copic Sketch Marker C10

Here are two more pictures...
