Christmas Banners Day 3



In the eyes of children, we find the joy of Christmas. In their hearts, we find its meaning."
As joyous as Christmas is for most families, for some, their holidays are filled with worry, medical treatments and tests, and pain -- for their child must be hospitalized or she or he needs long-term care rather than being home with their families. 
For these kids, Santa doesn't slip down a chimney but rather, often comes in the guise of community volunteers who help make the season bright.  

This is the second Christmas season that our own band of dedicated and loving paper crafters have come together to make Holiday banners for children who are too sick to be home for the holidays.  Welcome to the Christmas Banners for Special Needs Kids blog hop!
You should be coming from Susan's blog. If not start at the beginning to see all the great prizes being offered.

Here is my banner.

 I cut the ornaments from Joys of the Season and Christmas Cheer. I made them all different sizes.
 I used the cornies faces for the first time. I love them.
 I used bright colorful paper for the kiddos to enjoy.

Thank you again for visiting us here for a beautiful and worthwhile endeavor.  God bless all the little children wherever they spend their holidays!! Now head on over to Linda's blog to continue on this great hop.

I love this banner, Jamie!! It's so fun with the colors and adorable PKS faces. Thank you again for participating in this hop that is so very dear to me. It is hard to describe the look of wonder and pure, innocent delight in the child's eyes when he or she first sees the banner hanging bedside... precious! That child appreciates you more than I can ever. May you always be blessed knowing the joy you bring.

Fondly,
Ellen ♥ CardMonkey

Beautiful. This is what I'm talking about, these lovely banners are what makes the holiday very special. And adding more decorations aside from that is just so wonderful for the family.
