Banners For Kids: Bunnies and Blossoms Mar 24 & 25

Welcome to the Bunnies and Blossoms Banner Hop for Special Needs Children.Today and tomorrow (March 24-25), 30+ fantastic papercrafters have come together to create Spring-themed banners. They will then donate these banners to Ellen (CardMonkey), who works as Admissions Coordinator at Pediatric Specialty Care (PSC), www.pediatricspecialty.com. PSC is a long-term care facility for special needs children who are medically-fragile and/or technologically-dependent. The babies, children and youths at PSC range in age from birth to 21, and are admitted from all over the country. Some are infants, born prematurely and before their lungs have had a chance to mature. Others have serious birth defects, illnesses or injuries from accidents that cause them to need tender loving care in a home-like environment -- many for their lifetimes.Our banners are meant to cheer the young patients, their families, and the staff at PSC.
If you arrived here from Nancie's Blog then you are in the right place. If you just happened to find my blog by accident and would like to HOP along please go to  Ellen ♥ CardMonkey; Blog to start at the beginning.. Here is the banner that I made and will be sending to Ellen to decorate a child's room

For my banner I used an Easter theme, Bunnies Baskets and Colorful Eggs.


Cartridges :  Paper Dolls for Everyday, Easter 2010, Sophisticated
 All the papers and Card Stock are from my stash
Inked everything with Martha steward inks Used pop dots to pop the letters up Narrow satin ribbon in pink lavender and cream for the bow on the basket and lavender to tie the pieces together.
Hope you enjoy my project would love to hear your thoughts!

CardMonkey Ashley Pam Rachelle Jessica Nancie Tami Susan Beckie Jamie Vicki Robin Jennifer Alina Debbie Lisa Cindy
