Love Bugs Banner for Kids Blog Hop

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 Jearise's then you are on the right track but if you have come here by chance – great! but please start from the beginning at Ellen's and continue through from there.

For my "Love Bugs Banner" I chose to use a ladybug theme and the word Hugs. I really love how it turned out  I only wish I had better pictures to share.
This is a full shot of the banner:

Here a couple close ups

I will have to apologize before I start my description I am very bad at writing down my measurements so these are approximates
I used the imagine to cute the hearts It ha the shapes as part of its software. I believe they were cut at 4.5 inches for the red  and 4.2 inches for the white with black dots.
The red card stock is Recollections from last years valentine pack.
The white doted I printed on white card stock from a free file from  Gina K Designs Stamp TV. Love her tutorials.
The Ladybug is from a free file from Digi My World . She has some really great designs both free and for sale. The lady bug was printed on white card stock so it measured 2 inches for the larger ones and 1 inches for the smaller.
The green and blue paper were also printed from a free digital paper file I got
from My Grafico Digital Arts and Crafts Store. They have tons of fun stuff both free and for sale! I used the green  cut at 1.5 inches by 11 for the rossett edged with EK Success punch The blue circle were cut at 1 inch from the imagine scalloped circle,
The letters were cut at 2.5 inches from Ashlyn's Alphabet and the shadow in black.
