Christmas is for Kids Banner Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day #2 (Sunday) of the Christmas is for Kids Banner Hop!  
I am excited to be part of the CHRISTMAS is for KIDS BANNER HOP, we all made holiday banners for the children at Pediatric Specialty Care in Bucks County, PA. 
(See www.PediatricSpecialty.Com
At Pediatric Specialty Care  the children (ages 0-21) there are medically-fragile and technologically-dependent -- many are tethered to a ventilator that runs through a tracheostomy; most are wheelchair-bound, and cognitively impaired. They are all delightful children who face life with optimism and hope for a better tomorrow. On this hop, we have 34 generous hoppers who have created fabulous banners. Please scroll down for the full list of today's hop stops. 

 I made a double sided banner. One side has Cricut cut outs from Doodlecharms (snowman) and Create a Critter (reindeer). The other side I used Bugaboo's Santa digi's that Jodie gave out as a freebie. I loved them so much I decided to use them. Here are some close ups of the details. 
I used Peachy Keen faces on the snowman and Stickles for the buttons.
 I found brads that are bells at Hobby Lobby and added them to the bottom of each panel. Isn't that paper cute! Its Paper Studio I Believe in Santa pack. I love it!
 I picked up these red and silver bells at Hobby Lobby and added them with beads in between each panel. My banner sure does sound nice :0) Thanks for looking and head on over to Sandra

  I am entering this banner into Bugaboo's anything goes challenge. I knew when I saw these Santa's that I just had to use them for this challenge.

JAMIE!!! Your banner is TOOOOO stinkin' cute!!!! Wow, I love all those little details you included, with jingle bells and adorable paper. Two sided, too! I can think of several places at Pediatric Specialty Care where this long banner can hang so everyone can enjoy both sides of it, coming and going.

You're right -- those Bugaboo digis are simply adorable. You've done a fab job of coloring too.

THANK YOU so much for participating in this special cause hop. You can't possibly know how much your efforts are truly loved by the children, staff and families at PSC. May your kindness be rewarded ten-fold!

LOVE your banners. I like that you have two different types of images for those types of crafters. What a space saver since it is double-sided.

Would love for you to stop by when you get a chance.
