Sketch Blog Hop here
Welcome to the Bunnies and Blossoms Banner Hop for Special Needs Children.
Today and tomorrow (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), www.pediatricspecialty.com.
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. Here is the banner that I made and will be sending to Ellen to decorate a child's room:
This is my 4th banner hop that I've participated in and I'll tell ya, it brings me great joy when I make them.
Papers are from my stash/scraps
Paper piecing pattern is from Treasure Box Designs Growing Like Weeds
The lettering came from my SCAL, I just pulled a font that was already on the software
Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge
White gel pen
Copic Sketch Markers-B95, C10, YG63
