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 Jamie's blog,, 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 blog, and continue through from there.

Here are some pictures of my banner called "LOVE BUG" in which I used Walk in My Garden, Plantin School, and the Mickey cartridges to cut this banner out, Stickles, Martha Stewart Glitter gave it the added bling! Sorry I could not fit the banner into one picture, my camera would not cooperate with me whatsoever!

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 Deana's blog's at and have a wonderful day.
