Christmas is for Kids Banner Blog Hop Day #2

Good morning and welcome to the Christmas Is For Kids Banner Blog Hop Day # 2 hosted by Ellen at Card Monkey.  We are so glad you could join us!
If you just came from Lisa L, you are right on track. If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start at the beginning with Ellen at Card Monkey

Today and yesterday there are talented women that have each made at least one Christmas-themed banner that will be donated to hang in the rooms of special needs children at Pediatric Specialty Care in Bucks County, PA. I'm so honored I get to be a part of this hop with a group of fabulous ladies who never cease to amaze me!
First we have a word from the fantabulous Ellen (aka CardMonkey):
"It is my pleasure to host the CHRISTMAS is for KIDS BANNER HOP, where fantastic and generous crafters donated their talents, time and holiday banners to the children at Pediatric Specialty Care in Bucks County, PA. (See www.PediatricSpecialty.Com)
I work at Pediatric Specialty Care as Admissions Coordinator. The children (ages 0-21) we see 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. I've split the group in half so you're not overwhelmed with completing the hop in just one day. So DO stop back tomorrow to visit the second set of unique and precious banners. Please scroll down for the full list of today's hop stops.

And there's BLOG CANDY to be had!! THANK YOU to our generous sponsors who have provided prizes to those who hop along. Here are our sponsors and their prizes:

One winner will receive four free digi-images of
their own choosing from www.MeljenDesigns.com!

www.HappyScrappy.us will provide one winner with a code

valued at $20 toward your purchase from their terrific site! 
Beautiful ribbons, embellishments, charms and more are on the

http://meiflower.co.uk site. They'll be giving a voucher valued approx $32 USD.

For my projext I created this sweet litlle banner! I hope the children will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it!

All hoppers are eligible to win. Here's how:
Follow the blog and comment on as many projects as you choose -- the more blogs where you comment and follow, the more chances you have to win. There's just one catch: please actually comment on the project, which shows you've looked at the project, not just cut/pasting random comments ("CUTE! TYFS") only to win the prize.
Random.org will choose the winners, subject to verification that winners have met the above-stated criteria."
Thank you (!!!) to each of the crafters who has made a Holiday Banner. Please stop by each of their blogs to send them some love

Dear Janet, your banner is stunning! I love the sentiment "Sweet Christmas" and that it's wide enough to string across the widest of PSC's day room doors. The traditional colors make my heart sing!!

Thank you again for participating in this special cause Hop. Please know how very cherished your banner will be, year after year. May your days be blessed in equal measure to the love you've given these special needs children.

I'm beginning to think I am still a kid at heart. When I saw you banner I said" Oh it looks like candy!" I love your banner! I love the snowflakes behind the candy and the letters. I also like how you used only 3 colors. It is so cheerful. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown edwinabrown@comcast.net

I love the "Sweet Dreams" as that is what we all hope for our children...but especially for our children when they are in the hospital!

The delicate snowflakes really pop behind the letters! Great job!!
