Love Bugs Banners for Kids Day 1

Welcome to the “Love Bugs Banners for Kids” Hop.

Forty 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!

Now on with the hop....If you have come from
Denise then you are on the right track but if you have come here by chance – great! but please start from the beginning at Ellen and continue through from there.

 I made a very simple banner this time. I cut the circles with Spellbinders Lacy Circles and the bugs from Create a Critter and another cartridge that I cant remember at the moment. 


Thank you for joining us today on our “Love Bug Banner for Kids” Hop for the children of Pediatric Specialty Care. Please continue on to Teresa at
Have a wonderful day.
