Love Bugs Banners for Kids Blog Hop

Hi Everyone and Happy Saturday!  It's an exciting day around my house as it's my daughter's 1/2 birthday!  LOL, okay she is 5 1/2 and boy is she excited, you'd think it was her real birthday!  Anyway, thank you so much for visiting my blog today, hopefully you have come here from Tammy at Tambo's Creations, if not and you want to start at the beginning of this awesome hop, please head on over to Ellen at The Cardmonkey's Paper Jungle.
I am so honored to once again be participating in this wonderful cause for the children at the Pediatric Specialty Care. This time we have almost forty very talented crafters who have come together for a two day hop to showcase handmade banners that will be donated.  The banners bring smiles to the faces of all the children that are cared for at this facility and I am so happy that I could do that as well!
We have some awesome sponsors for the hop as well, you will be entered to win as long as you leave a comment, the more blogs you visit the more chances you have to win!  

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!

Okay, onto my banner.  I used my new Cricut Imagine (love it) to create this banner.  The cartridges I used were Yummy for the banner and patterns, Imagine More for the butterflies, and Storybook for the letters. I used a Tim Holtz die for the Rosettes with Stampin UP Chocolate Chip paper.  I also used pink twine from the Twinery to tie it all together.  The theme of this hop was "love bugs", I thought it would be fun to use butterflies as my "bugs" on the banner:-)


 Thanks so much for stopping by today!! 

Your next stop is Robin over at Scrap and Chat.

  1. Such a sweet banner, Jessica!! And happy half-birthday to your cutie-pie daughter! Does she get half a card, and half a cake, too? We typically celebrate my half-birthday and my daughter's too, as we're August babies. When we were growing up, that meant no cupcakes for your classmates -- unless you surprised everyone with cupcakes mid-year. So H-P-Y I-T-D-Y. Enjoy!

    THANK YOU again for participating in this Hop that means so much to me, and brings smiles to the faces of the special needs kids at Pediatric Specialty Care!

    Fondly,
    Ellen ♥ CardMonkey
